In the winter of 2008, two climbers encountered the Taiwanese legendary monster ' Moxina (2012) '(a.k.a. Mô-sîn-á) at the evil mountain 'Wuzhishan'. Ryota Nakanishi presents sixteen minutes of bizarre, surreal imagery.

In 1978 in Hong Kong, a grisly murder takes place. Eight years later, on a Macao beach, kids discover the severed hands of a fresh victim. A squadron of coarse, happy-go-lucky cops investigate, and suspicion falls on Wong Chi Hang, the new owner of Eight Immortals Restaurant, which serves delicious pork bao. The hands belong to the missing mother of the restaurant's former owner; he and his family have disappeared; staff at the restaurant continue to go missing; and, Wong can't produce a signed bill of sale: but there's no evidence. The police arrest Wong and try to torture him into a confession. Can they make him talk? And what was in those pork bao?Written by
When Wong Chi Hang kills the first child, you can see that the cleaver travels through the child (positioned on the right side of the scene) and the blood splatter spurts on Wongs face directly from the underside, nowhere near where the child was positioned earlier. See more »

Anthony Wong displays some good acting chops in this story-based on real events that took place in Macau back in the early eighties. One scene in particular showing the murder and rape of a young woman is the most disturbing I've seen since R. Kern's "Fingered". Overall the film is good but it is hampered greatly in the scenes depicting bonding between the detective squad chasing down the killer. Here, the screenwriter seems to be attempting to soften the story with silly comic relief and this clashes totally with the tone of the picture. Aside from the scenes in the precinct, the movie works well and it's worth a look. A word of caution, Chinese films aren't usually known for being subtle and with this subject matter it makes for some taboo breaking on-screen violence. It's not as good as "Henry:Portrait of a Serial Killer" but it is quite powerful.
