Made during the short vogue in Hong Kong for gruesome true-crime films, this is a pale imitation of the film that most others aspire to, THE UNTOLD STORY. We meet the necrophile rapist-killer in jail as we get long flashbacks to his various crimes and problems dealing with the female sex. He's shy, he's nerdy, he's got a little hammer he's going to kill with. What's disturbing about his crimes is that he seems to target mothers with small children. This film doesn't have the weird mix of horror and oddball humor that THE UNTOLD STORY had and is therefore rather ordinary within the ranks of Hong Kong Category III cinema. Not very bloody and not too outrageous either considering the subject matter.
