Very sick and depraved stuff.
23 September 2003 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

Herman Yau's "Ebola Syndrome" is a gruesome Hong Kong horror in the tradition of "Bunman:The Untold Story" and "Dr.Lamb".Anthony Wong is incredible as Kai San-he is one of the most depraved characters I have ever seen.Still the tone of the film isn't really disturbing-"Ebola Syndrome" can be very humorous at times.However if you're squeamish don't watch this one-there is torture,rape,dismemberment,masturbation with pork product,cannibalism and plenty of heavy violence on display.The plot is simple:Wong plays a deranged serial killer who flees Hong Kong after committing multiple murders and ends up contracting the Ebola Virus during his brief hideout in Africa.After murdering several people in Africa he returns to Hong Kong with some stolen money to start all over again.But now he is the Ebola carrier and he is spreading deadly virus...Overall,"Ebola Syndrome" doesn't quite live up to "Bunman:The Untold Story",however fans of extreme cinema should be pleased.
