Storyline

Insane film from the master Billy Tang. A deranged man stalks and kills women that wear red. A young, mentally challenged woman is admitted into a group home that the deranged man happens to run. One day, she happens to wear a red dress for a dance recital that her social worker puts on. The nut sees her wearing red and that's when the fun really begins. Written by Joseph P.

Excellent Exploitation

I've seen quite a few of Billy Tang's films, and I must say this is the best. The direction is great, Tang's penchant for blue lighting works perfectly with the material. Lily Chung plays a retarded girl who is sent to a home after the death of her father. Ben Ng plays the mild mannered director, who happens to be a psychotic killer and rapist, his violent impulses triggered by the color red. This is an awesome performance, ranking as one of the most entertaining film loony's I've ever seen (and that's no small number). While bleak, there is also plenty of humor, some unintentional, due to the poorly translated subtitles ("Crash your penis, cut it to make soup!"). Fans of HK horror will love this.
