Very sleazy film
3 February 2001 | by (England) – See all my reviews

This film centres around a young chinese man who is deported from America after being acused of several murders the authorities could not prove, it turns out that he was abused by his mother as a child. After contacting his father he goes on a killing spree, abducts numerous woman, tortures, beats and eventually kills them.

One woman he forces her to kill a couple and their young son after he urinates on the woman, he forces the now catatonic woman to shrink wrap the boy then stab the woman to death. Yep this is nasty stuff with Anthony Wong who usually plays notourious villians turns up as one of the good guys. All those who like Lucio Fulci films will reconise some of the music from City Of The Living Dead.
