Did You Know?

During the DVD commentary, Anthony Chau-Sang Wong made it clear that it was not his him killing the frog in the first kitchen scene. He said that not only does it take a special skill to prepare a frog like that, but he also found it to be cruel.See more »
Yeung:[addressing to Kai, who has a child hostage] Your virus has killed lots of people. Let the child go.
Kai San:How dare you blame me for it? l didn't invent the Ebola virus. God created Ebola, not me. And his virus will kill all you bastards.

Very sick and depraved stuff., 23 September 2003
Author: HumanoidOfFlesh from Chyby, Poland

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.
