Plot – Spoilers:
Based on the Eight Immortals Restaurant murders in Macau, China with some urban legends thrown in.

Wong is a compulsive Mahjong gambler with a violent temper and isn’t above cheating at the game or murdering anyone who owes him money or gives him shit. He murders the owner of the restaurant he works at, and takes over running the place. To brighten things up, he adds human meat buns to the menu before the clumsy police get on his trail.

If there’s one thing to be learnt from this notorious ’80s incident, it’s that a restaurant makes the perfect setting for a serial killer who wouldn’t need to explain stray meat lying around or bloodstains.

    Saw this on YT awhile back but I am sure it was a much shorter version, most probably censored. From what I saw, it was pretty full on with the gore, but will watch this to see what was missing. There is also a part 2 and 3 but have not seen those.

        Has the feel of a really bad 80’s fung fu movie, but with out the action. Sexism just isn’t funny to me and I don’t know why they think it is.

    This Hong Kong film definitely lives up to the expectation of fucked up. It had a combo of extreme violence with humor sprinkled in. A demented chef is interrogated by some irritating police officers about the disappearance of the family who owned the Eight Immortals Restaurant. There are scenes that some viewers will find distressing with explicit violence. The main actor played an excellent role in this I have to say. The police officers were super annoying with shitty acting though lol. With plenty of brutal scenes, this is a solid film to get your fucked up movie fix!

    if the first scene being in 15 fps puts you off, don’t worry, the whole movie isn’t like that
