Hong Kong cinema re-splices the speed of the West with the excess of the East in a vertigo of pure dreck. No cinema does exploitation better than these film makers. While John Woo, Wong Kar Wai, and Ringo Lam have been moving to Hollywood, the Ed Woods and Russ Meyers of the scene have been left behind--until now, thanks to Peter Chow International, the worst of the worst is now available for all to see. Now directors of the hyper-bad, like Clearence Fok and Wong Jing, can gain access to a public in dire need of dancing cannibals, sex freaks from hell, super cool lesbian assassins (these chicks could eat Jackie Chan for brunch), and a guy who needs about 20 slaves just to cart his giant penis around-- nothing Hollyweird has evermade comes close.
Have you ever wondered what would happen if Wonder Woman became Charles Bronson and then ended up in "Basic Instinct." It's called "Naked Killer," a tour de force of the most twisted action flick ever made. These directors take the most base material and push it even further than you thought possible--so don't whine that US media if full of violence and smut. For truely tasteless orgies of sexploitation go East young sickos--go East!
