Trivia

The film is very loosely based on one of the most sensational of Hong Kong murder cases. In 1985, two teenagers, Kenneth McBride and Nicola Meyers, were savagely tortured and killed on a hillside on Hong Kong island. They were students at a posh English-language school, and the police worked overtime to find their killers, a gang of local hoodlums, of whom most were under 18. This film is an attempt to find a rationale for why they were killed. See more »

Alternate Versions

The Mei Ah Entertainment DVD runs 79:34. At 16:40 the audio is cut, and subtitles appear in Chinese only. This was to remove bad language. See more »

Super violent and super sexy non PC brute of a film
12 January 2007 | by christopher-underwoodSee all my reviews

Super violent and super sexy non PC brute of a film. No half measures here, unless you count the vigorous soft core. Non stop action and that includes the police interviews which seem as violent as the rest. Indeed there is an interesting second thread through this 'my unloving parents turned me into a sex killer' scenario, in that 'foreigners' are also blamed and in the main are the victims of the abuse. Funnily enough the senior police speak and seem to be spoken to in English whilst the 'pretty' westerners who get murdered and gang raped are also English speakers. It may not be a pretty sight to behold but this is a fine example of Hong Kong Cat3. What the polite might call a guilty pleasure.
