A sleazy and vicious Cat III—just how I like 'em!
21 December 2010 | by BA_HarrisonSee all my reviews

This sick flick certainly doesn't waste any time getting to the 'good stuff': before the first minute is up, a sexy young whore has been brutally gang-banged and beheaded by a trio of maniacs wearing rubber Halloween wolf masks! These guys are the Prostitute Killers, lifelong friends who share a common interest—raping and killing 'bad' women. In addition to thinning out the local prostitute population for kicks, the psychotic pals also find time to settle a score with Brother Shark, the local gangster/pimp who has been causing them trouble.

Such a warped premise delivers all the exploitative sex and gore expected from a Cat III flick (assorted rape, scalping, necrophilia, bone breaking and eye popping), but director Shu-Pui Hou takes the bad taste in his movie one step further than most: where bad guys in this genre tend to be pure evil incarnate, this one asks the audience to sympathise with and perhaps even try to understand the film's three murderous degenerates. By displaying this dubious sense of morality, director Shu-Pui Hou has created something that seems even more immoral than your standard Cat III deviancy.
