Another nasty Cat III shocker.
2 March 2005 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

"Love to Kill" is directed by Billy Chung and it also stars Anthony Wong as a sadistic husband that tortures and abuses his wife and this leads the thing into a typical hyper strong HK terror cinema climax that is filled like the whole film with extreme violence and brutality.This film is easily among the most outrageously sick Cat III films ever made as it features plenty of misogynistic violence and several nasty rape scenes.Like my friend Bogey Man noticed there are two versions of "Love to Kill":the pretty rare Taiwanese DVD with subtitles and the unsubtitled HK DVD which turned out to have longer and nastier rape scene of Julie Lee on the table,near the end.There is also an insanely bloody axe decapitation that left me stunned.I think that the whole film is redeemed by a gritty performance by victim Elizabeth Lee as well as the dependably creepy Anthony Wong.The climax is brutal and horrifying but it never reaches the levels of intensity of "The Untold Story" finale.Still this film is so extremely rare that I'm glad to have it fully uncut in my collection.7 out of 10.
