Leio | Chalit Krileadmongkon, Chitpol Ruanggun | TH 2022 | 109 Min | DCP

As pop star Kao’s career takes a nosedive, he returns to his dried-out hometown. A drilling contest is supposed to accelerate the discovery of desperately needed water. But instead of H2O, the illustrious characters find a giant lizard that brings death and destruction. Leio is not only a charming throwback to the heyday of classic monster movies (The Giant Gila Monster!) but also seasoned with peculiar ingredients of mainstream Thai cinema—resulting in a slapstickesque creature feature that’s sure to put you in a good mood.
