The Skinny: Exceptional Category 3 film that manages to rise above its exploitation roots to deliver a compelling thriller.
Review
by Kozo:
     This grisly Category 3 thriller is actually a worthy example of the genre. Danny Lee and Anthony Wong play cop and psycho, but the movie isnít about the chase. Instead itís about abused wife Elizabeth Lee, who flees into hiding while nutty husband Wong tries to find her. The reason for Wongís psychosis is tied to a terrible childhood of being beaten, but that isnít what makes this thriller work. Instead of opting for Raped by an Angel style cleverness, the whole film is redeemed by a gritty performance by victim Elizabeth Lee as well as the dependably creepy Anthony Wong. As usual, Danny Lee is the loose cannon cop but heís relegated to a supporting role. He tries to play hero, but heís not the guy who has to stand up and be counted. When allís said and done itís battered wife vs. abusive husband - which makes for an extremely harrowing finish. Effectively shocking and gory, itís a worthy watch if you can stomach the stuff. (Kozo 1998)
