This movie is based on a real story that happened in 1964. A huge crocodile terrorizes a local communauty and wildly eats people (อาละวาดกินคน). A team of three policemen arrives including a new police inspector (นายตำรวจ). The crocodile causes again a rampage during a temple fair. Pornthip, daughter of the subdistrict headman (กำนัน), is saved by the police inspector. Her younger sister, Pen, just comes back from Bangkok after long studies. They visit a famous medium (อาจารย์). He mentions that the crocodile is possessed by a spirit (เป็นจระเข้เจ้า). A crocodile hunter is recruited and also a crocodile expert (หมอจระเข้) to get rid of Ai Dang, the crocodile's nickname given by the villagers. The crocodile hunter, Khun Sak, is played by veteran actor Dam Datsakorn. The subdistrict headman, the village headman (ผู้ใหญ่บ้าน) and a local rich Chinese merchant help each other (รวมมือ) for a reward to catch the crocodile. Jealousy happens between village men and the policemen regarding the subdistrict headman's beautiful daughters. Ai Dang (ไอ้ด่าง) is an intelligent crocodile so it is difficult to catch it. The crocodile expert is killed. Porn gives food to the crocodile in order that Ai Dang is full (กินอิ่มแล้ว) and so avoid any danger for the police inspector and villagers. The police inspector tries to catch the crocodile and puts nets in places but to no avail. Tot, local villager, comes to get Pen's hand but the subdistrict headman refuses as Tot is a rich but lazy guy (เรียนไม่เรียนไม่สำคัญ ถ้ามีตังค์ซื้อตำแหน่ง). There is jaleousy between Porn and Pen over the police inspector. Pen becomes crazy (บ้าที่สุด) and wishes to win over her sister (ต้องชนะให้ได้). Police believes that crocodile Ai Dang is dead as no more rampage happens. Pen pushes Porn in the water when she is feeding Ai Dang. It fails. Ai Dang is hungry again and eats a cow. Police management wants results. Porn wishes to stop seeing the police inspector as she loves her younger sister so much despite she did bad (ทำชั่ว). The two sisters are reconciliated. Ai Dang starts to eat people again. By using bombs and helicopter the police inspector succeeds to chase it and have it killed. Two movies have been done regarding Ai Dang crocodile, one in 1988 and one in 2005. The movie has poor Fx as the crocodile and actors are rarely on same shot. This movie mixes romance with a crocodile story based on real facts.
