Part black comedy, part voodoo ghost story, First Bite, or 1st Bite as it is sometimes billed, claims that “as in love and in life, it`s cooking up the passion that counts. The greatest passion is rewarded with the greatest death.” That`s according to the official website of its director and screenwriter, Hunt Hoe. It is also a mixture of Dracula gore and more common gourmet fare. The story revolves around Gus who works in a Montreal restaurant and travels to Bangkok to learn Thai cooking. He meets Lek, a mysterious girl who lives in an island cave and whips up all kinds of exotic dishes for him. Between his karaoke sessions and full-moon parties, Gus has a lot of fun, but then he begins to have strange experiences, not the least of which involves waking up on a beach and being helped by an Indian guru who heads the Institute for Enlightenment and Empowerment. Back in Montreal, Gus falls in love with a Canadian girl, but the Thai sorceress refuses to let him go. The film had a three-month shoot schedule and was the first Canadian film to be made in Thailand. It features a Thai, Canadian and Indian cast.
