perhaps Hong Kong's best known director, made this black gore-comedy in
1983 (some sources claim 1980). It tells the story of a federal agent
named 999 who travels to China to capture a notorious bandit. En route
he befriends a petty thief who is also heading to the city of Rolex. Neither
man is aware that the town is completely populated with cannibals. Lots
of blood and gore, plus a strange mixture of horror and sexual humor (e.g.,
the scenes where a town transvestite wants to play with 999 and eat him
in the process).
widescreen uncut (90 min.) version encoded for ALL REGIONS, playable
on any American DVD machine; in Chinese language with removable English
or Chinese subtitles as an option. This title is Category III, intended
