Synopsis / Plot / Review
A throwback to Hong Kong Cinema's notorious Category III chillers like The Untold Story, Human Pork Chop possesses enough sick thrills and dark humor to intrigue fans of the notorious Hong Kong genre. Based on a sensational real life criminal case, the film tells the tale of Grace Li (Emily Kwan), a prostitute who was killed by her pimp Wayne Lai, and subsequently tortured and dismembered. The signature detail of the crime - a human skull hidden inside an incredibly cute stuffed animal (HELLO KITTY) - is presented here, along with the chilling moments leading up to the discovery of Grace Li's body, including lots of grisly gore and the stomach-churning sight of the perpetrators actually carrying out the crime. Director Bennie Chan spares nobody in his quest to bring graphic images of human horror and media-hyped sickness to the Hong Kong screen. Co-starring Amanda Lee and Luo Lan, this film is most definitely not for the weak-of-heart. However, viewers with the inclination - and the iron-cast stomach - for such elaborate displays of degradation may find what they're looking for in Human Pork Chop!. The real life case also inspired another film called There is a Secret in My Soup. -yesasia
