Director: Ivan Lai Kai-Ming
Cast: Yvonne Yung Hung, Kent Cheng Juk-Si, Tsui Kam-Kong, Ching Suet-Ngan, Lau Dik-Chi, Yuen King-Tan, Shing Fui-On, Victor Hon Kwan
The Skinny: Inexcusably boring Category III flick which serves up the requisite sleaze in slumber-inducing fashion.
Review
by Kozo:
     Though it shares three cast members with the inspired Chinese Torture Chamber Story, this period Category III comedy/drama/whatever is interminable and a good cure for those suffering from insomnia. Yung Hung is the madam of a brothel, which experiences hijinks when a new girl is brought in. Meanwhile, Kent Cheng spies on Yung bathing. Still, it's all good because Cheng bears unrequited love for Yung, which is a plot point that fails to make the film any better. Tsui Kam-Kong makes his usual appearance, which means halfway through the film to rape Yung Hung. Ugh. This piece of crap might deserve more derision if it weren't so incredibly uninteresting. If you need a Category III fix, there are a variety of other skanky features with which to occupy your time. Or, you could take up a new hobby, like fly fishing. (Kozo 1996)
