He was, however, the first reported serial killer in Thailand (though he was of Chinese origin) and he was a cannibal. Now, as much as some people deny it, there is a sub-set of the vampire genre that involves the eating of flesh as well as the drinking of blood. Indeed, the drinking of human blood is, of itself, an act of cannibalism. It struck me that Zee-Oui (maintaining the movie spelling) would have been nicknamed vampire had it been a European case and, also, there were aspects of this film that brought the film M to mind as I watched. Finally, as we will see, the film connected his cannibalism with a concept that it brought him health.

Not a vampire movie, as such, but certainly part of the serial killer sub-section that is of genre interest. The imdb page is here.
