REVIEW WRITTEN BY: JESUS QUINTEROS. SCREENSHOTS

This is a notorious Cat III-film staring my favorite scumbag ANTHONY WONG. Many people put this up there as one of the most fucked up movies ever made, and who am I to argue? It's sick, twisted and I love it!

Wong Chi Hang is a real sleazy mother fucker. What does he do? He murders his boss and entire family and takes over his restaurant, Eight Immortals. Not letting a good thing go to waste, he turns the entire family into ground meat and serves them up to customers as barbeque pork buns, which have become so popular, the entire town is eating them.

We don't get to see the gruesome murders until the end of the movie, but damn it's worth the wait! The cops are onto Wong though, and are tracking him and putting their case together. But Wong doesn't give a fuck, along the way he murders some more and even commits a very brutal "chopstick" rape you've got to see!

Eventually the cops arrest Wong and hold him on some pretty light evidence. Their plan is to beat the shit out of him until he confesses, but that doesn't work. Then they throw him in prison with the brother of the murdered restaurant owner. There he is brutally beaten and tortured, but nope, Wong is the man and that doesn't get a confession out of him either. Eventually he's subjected to a brutal, days and days long sleep deprivation torture which finally gets him to crack and admit to everything. And yes, this is the part we've all been waiting for.

We finally get to see the brutal murders, and brutal they are. Wong ties up the entire family and beats the restaurant owner in front of his children, before turning his attention to them. One by one he murders these children while their parents watch helplessly. The camera doesn't shy away and we get to see every slit throat and decapitated head. Truly a marvel.

The film ends with Wong thrown back in prison, tortured on a daily basis. However he's determined not to live this the rest of his life and slits his wrists with a soda can tab, ending his suffering. This is all apparently based on a true crime story, but who the hell cares. It's damn good, true or not. And one of the most brutal movies to come out from Hong Kong or anywhere else.
