In 1946 a young man from China named Zee-Oui immigrated to Thailand in hope of a better life. His only possession was the knife inherited from his mother. However, everything did not turn out as he had thought. He was bullied and humiliated from everyone around him. He tried desperately to survive in this world. He became ill. He missed his mother... At the same time, his instincts increasingly oppressed his thoughts and behaviors. He began killing children, consuming their heart and liver in the believe that it would make him stronger. Whenever he felt weak, he would kill again and again just to avoid the insecure feelings. At the end, he was caught and confessed to all the killings he had done. He was sentenced to the death penalty as the society returned to serenity. But why there were still missing and murdered children? Written by Anonymous

User Reviews

Pretty gruesome Thai serial killer flick.
8 December 2005 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

"Zee Oui" is a surprisingly grisly tale of Thai serial killer and cannibal,who murders small children.Li Hui is a Chinese immigrant,who works in Thailand as the butcher.Everone treats him with an utter contempt.Driven completely out of his mind,Li Hui starts killing small children and,if that's not bad enough,he also believes he must eat their hearts and livers,in order to contain his severe tuberculosis."Zee Oui" is actually based on a true crime case of cannibalistic serial killer.It features some rather unpleasant scenes of violence against children,so squeamish should definitely avoid it.Still Li Hui is a pretty complex character and his murderous behavior is attributed to the physical effects of tuberculosis.The directors are two sisters,who only made several television commercial before making this stylish film.Recommended for fans of Asian horror.8 out of 10.
