YMMV / The Untold Story

  • Complete Monster: In this film, Very Loosely Based on a True Story, Wong Chi-hang was the owner of the Eight Immortals restaurant. Originally a waiter, Wong gruesomely murders the original owner Cheng Lam and his family, including the children, when Cheng refused to grant Wong $183,000 due to Wong cheating at mahjong. When Ah Man, a waiter of the restaurant, catches him in the act, Wong savagely kills him, makes barbecue pork buns with his flesh, and serves them to the unsuspecting customers. Fearing that Pearl, a cashier, was going to tell the police, he rapes and murders her in a gruesome fashion, and he attempts to flee from the authorities after hiding crucial evidence. While he was getting his self-inflicted wounds tended to, he takes a nurse as hostage, and threatens to murder her if he wasn't allowed to escape. His only regret was not being meticulous with disposing the evidence.
  • Cult Classic
  • Hong Kong Homely: The one female cop is often called ugly even though she could be considered above average.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Mr. Wong's slaughter of his boss's family - including half a dozen children - will convince you he's an irredeemable monster. Later murders will simply confirm it.
  • Squick: A good amount, if the alternative titles/subtitle wasn't enough of an indicator.
