Pretty nasty and grim Cat III shocker.
17 March 2003 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

"Diary of a Serial Killer" by Otto Chan is based on actual events that took place in Guangzhao's,Wong Po village in 1991-1996.During five years of terror Li Wenxian raped and murdered thirteen women,mostly prostitutes.Li told authorities he was seeking revenge for a prostitute who cheated him.Lau Shu-bill(Chan Kwok-Bong)is a serial killer.He murders prostitutes in very nasty ways.He wants to dispatch these filthy women,releasing them from their misery and giving them a better shot in the next life.This HK sickie is very well-made and has some rather unpleasant scenes of sexual violence and butchery.There is also plenty of sleazy sex to satisfy fans of exploitation cinema.Chan Kwok-Bong is frighteningly realistic as a sicko killer.The film is not for everyone,but if you're into extreme Asian cinema give this one a look.Recommended.
