CateGORY III Mania!: Something's in my Soup and others.

Post by ROBERT » Sun Oct 21, 2001 9:59 am

Here's a shit load of Cat 3 HongKong films I found at my local Chinatown vidstore. If you guy's have seen them, by all means speak up.These are synopsis I've culled from other sources.All these films are going for about$13-16.00 US

Something's in my Soup.

A bunch of Gangsters kidnap a prostitute rape and dismember her.

Red to Kill

The notorious rape/revenge film from Hong Kong. Many sexually charged rape scenes

Sex and Zen 2

Fucking,Fucking and more fucking. Not to mention a horse dick transplant. With the member later being used. Maybe this might be the third in the series.

Devil's Woman

A shotgun abortion(literally) and asian curses, lead to one messy finale.

The IMP(1996)

Tale about a woman looking for her sister. Has the requisite down and dirty rape scene.With a shock twist ending.

Resort Massacre

Looks like aa Asian Scream clone to me. But from box stills, it looks like it delivers the goods.

The Intruder

Looks like a female psycho home invasion flick.

Untold story 2

Obviously a continuation of the first.

I've seen Red To Kill, The Imp and Untold Story 2. I'd say Red to Kill was the best of the 3, followed by US2, and The Imp. I read a great review of The Imp somewhere and when I got the dvd I was really disappointed in it. It's pretty boring stuff and I repeatedly fell asleep. US2 is actually pretty different from the first one. It's got Anthony Wong playing a bumbling cop out to get a killer, who again is cooking up and serving his victims. It's not bad, but if you're expecting it to be as good as the first, you'll be disappointed. Red To Kill has been discussed here quite a bit, mostly with Flesh Cutter saying it's the best movie ever. It's not, but still quite good. I'd say check it out if you're in the mood for a good psycho film.

I've seen Red to Kill at a theatrical screening. It was pretty brutal. It's on my list of DVDs to get. I heard that the ending of the Imp(1996version) makes it worthwhile. But a couple others have said the same thing, as you. That it's pretty boring. I haven't heard much about untold story 2. But I'll try and dig up a couple of reviews. I liked the first.

I think I slept through the end. I seem to remember thinking "maybe I should wake up for this?", but, well, I hate waking up so.... Image

Add my voice to the chorus of disapproval for THE IMP. Like DD, I got suckered into picking it up (it was only $5 US) after reading a few raves on the net. Sure there's flesh and blood, but not nearly enough to satisfy. The lead actress, however, does appear to possess the most spectacular top shelf in HK cinema. Alas, all isn't revealed, which kind of sums up the whole film - just a tease which fails to deliver.

Is this the same Imp where there's a little kid (???) ghost in the bottom of a skyscraper where this guy starts working as a security guard and then the ghost starts to posesses his unborn child?

NO! That "Imp" is really, really good. So if you're wondering why we're bashing it, wonder no more. I'd definitely recommend the 80's Imp to whoever hasn't seen it yet.

I didn't really like The Imp, though the pasty face zombie type guys at the end were way cool. I will confess, I had a horribly subtitled copy, so it may have lost a lot.

Red to Kill,is undoubtedly the sickest and most sadistic, of the Category 3 films, I've seen. A basic plot about a serial rapist stalking the women in a Hong Kong district. It contains eroticized rapes. A retarded girl slashing her vagina with razor, and a dive on a table saw. A visceral gem, to be sure.
