on a true story, here is a rough CAT III thriller from Hong Kong circa
1995. A young man, Lau Shu Biu, is chastised by his wife for being unable
to sexually satisfy her. Frustrated, he regularly visits prostitutes.
After engaging in sex, he ties them up and tortures them in various
ways before killing them. Biu believes that he is doing God's work.
When they die - especially in a painful gruesome fashion - these girls
will be reincarnated into a better life. He murders many females (police
suspect at least a dozen) before his capture. His demise begins when
a young woman named Jade Fung comes to stay with Biu and his family.
He falls in love with her but is reluctant to kill her. Instead, Biu
forces her to leave the house. She has nowhere to go and starts working
as a prostitute. A bit later, Biu discovers Jade in her new profession
and rapes her. She becomes pregnant. She alerts the police who finally
move in for an arrest.
