After his students are killed by the One Armed Boxer, a vengeful and blind Kung Fu expert travels to a village where a martial arts contest is being held and vows to behead every one armed man he comes across.
Deadly Darling never had a proper release outside it's own country. The only way European people could watch it was on a Greek VHS badly and silly dubbed with Greek subtitles. For example when a girl stands on a building they shout at her, don't jump, don't kill yourself, the apartments aren't been hired... Do I need to say more.
But Deadly Darling is sought after by the lovers of rape/revenge flicks. Even as it is low on part of the revenge it still can be disturbing to some. The second rape takes almost over 6 minutes. There's no nudity to spot but it's the way it was shot that gave it an eery look. It doesn't look like the rape scene in Irreversible (2002) but still, it has shock value.
When a model is being raped the rapist isn't convicted and walks free. A journalist without fear does believe the girl and goes out on research behind the rape but is raped herself. From that moment on her loverboy doesn't want to see her again because she has been raped and his friends would laugh at him. Taking a shower, again shot in an eery way, her mind goes berserk and she's out for revenge.
Some might think that this is a bit like I Spit On Your Grave (1978) and in some ways it does but here the gore is left out. We do see some killings here and there and a bit of martial art but on the horror or even gore it's very low. It's not that bad at all, because it do offer a few weird moments, especially when she goes to bed with one of her victims and while making love slashes his throat with razor and dig out her sword to make the final kill.
Once discovered by the cops who is the killer of men, the movie goes really fast and suddenly it's all over. Only for rape/revenge lovers but extremely hard to find on a legal way.
