[[caption-width-right:272:You are what you eat.]]

A nasty, CultClassic UsefulNotes/HongKong movie from 1993 [[VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory supposedly based on true events]]. A severed hand washes up on a beach in Macau. The local cops investigate, eventually leading to the Eight Immortals Restaurant, which is run by the polite and nerdy Wong Chi Hang. Mr. Wong cannot provide proof of ownership for the restaurant, which has a really high turnover rate in employees who always seem to leave abruptly. The police soon find that the restaurant once belonged to a family who was nowhere to be found. The cops know something isn't right but they don't have proof of anything. Eventually, they resort to extreme methods to force a confession from Mr. Wong.

What they find is far more disturbing than they could have ever imagined.

[[TheSecretOfLongPorkPies Whatever you do, don't try the dumplings.]]

Also goes by the following names: ''Bun Man'', ''The Eight Immortals Restaurant'', ''Human Meat Pies: The Untold Story'' and ''Human BBQ Pork Buns''. Two loose sequels followed, the first in 1998, and the second in 1999.

* AnArmAndALeg: We are not talking about the prices in Wong's menu, here.
* AssholeVictim: Wong suffers ALOT in the second half of the film, but no one can say it wasn't well-deserved...
* AxCrazy: Wong.
* BeAWhoreToGetYourMan: Lampshaded and averted. The lone female cop dresses in a slutty fashion in order to impress the men in the precinct. They are impressed but the chief tells her she "looks like a whore". She replies with "But this is the way your girlfriends dress." He quickly responds with [[HypocriticalHumor "But they are whores, my dear"]].
* BerserkButton: Wong will chop someone into pieces if they (intend to) tell everyone that he cheated in a Mahjong game; one of the waiters, Cheng and his family learned the hard way.
* BigBad: Wong Chi-hand, a SerialKiller who [[TheSecretOfLongPorkPies makes his victims into pork buns]].
* DisproportionateRetribution: Someone wants to expose you for cheating at mahjong? Better kill his whole family then.
* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: In more ways than one.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Wong acts polite and friendly in order to cover up his crimes and draw suspicion away from himself.
* FourEyesZeroSoul: Wong during his days in Macau when he's not in prison and hospital.
* {{Gorn}}: It's considered one of the goriest Asian movies.
* GroinAttack: A rare female example - a fist full of chopsticks. Ouch!
* HighPressureBlood: The meat clever scene, especially.
* HumiliationConga: Wong, after he's arrested. He's beaten by the cops to force a confession, only to be thrown in jail to be beaten again by prisoners lead by his victim's brother. [[AssholeVictim It's very cathartic.]]
* IAteWhat: The scene when the cops realise [[TheSecretOfLongPorkPies just what kind of meat]] was in the buns Mr. Wong served them is darkly humorous.
* ImAHumanitarian: Wong never actually eats his victims. He leaves it up to his customers and even some of the cops who were investigating him.
* JackBauerInterrogationTechnique: The cops' methods of getting Wong to talk.
* {{Jerkass}}: [[FauxAffablyEvil When he isn't pretending to be a respectable restaurant owner]], Wong is obnoxious and rude to almost everyone he meets.
* ManOnFire: A poor guy gets splashed with gasoline and set on fire at the beginning.
* MoodWhiplash: The scenes with the cops at the station are jarringly wacky.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Wong gets hit with a lot of these after he's arrested.
* OffWithHisHead: It happens to all of his victims but one particularly gruesome example [[KickTheDog happens to a little girl.]]
* TheSecretOfLongPorkPies
* VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory: The trailer, box cover, and the opening scrawl all claim it was based on true events.
* VillainProtagonist: Wong is the protagonist of this story and is an AxCrazy [[TheSociopath Sociopathic]] SerialKiller who murders and rapes for even the tiniest insult.
* WouldHurtAChild: Wong... very much so.
