Buddhist South East Asian countries share some common folklore. In 1970 Cambodia released movie "The Snake Man", starring Mr. Chea Yuththorn and Mrs. Dy Saveth, based on a folk legend in which a woman is courted by a giant snake. The baby born from their love has hair made of small snakes. Local villagers disdain the mother and her daughter. It was a big hit in Cambodia and Thailand. Later on, a few Thai movies (งูเก็งกอง) were 'remakes' of the original Cambodian movie.

In 2001, a Cambodian movie was made as a remake of the original movie. Cambodian Movie Star Pich Chanboramey and Thai actor Vinai Kraibutr were playing in this movie.
