Revenge: A Love Story - Preview
Preview by Jack Foley
DARK and moody serial killer film with a perspective from the killer’s side of the story, Revenge: A Love Story (Fuk Sau Che Chi Sei) is at times bloody and at other times touching and romantic. It’s released on DVD and Blu-ray on Monday, January 23, 2012.
Police are investigating a serial killer who targets pregnant women and the media have labeled him ‘The Dissector’ and running sensationalist headlines such as “Pregnant woman dissected alive, husband put to death in 100 degrees boiling water”.
At the scene of yet another such murder, and led by undercover detectives Jeff and Kwok Wah (Chin Siu Ho, Tony Ho) they comb the area and find a known suspect, Chan Kit, and bring him in.
Chan Kit remains silent throughout the physically brutal interrogation and is released without charge.
If Chan Kit is not the killer, then who is? The story unfolds step by step, jumping with flashbacks as to how Chan Kit is linked to the group of undercover policeman in the first place and the pain he has silently endured; this is a story about unconditional love.
Starring Juno Mak (Dream Home, Truth or Dare: 6th Floor Rear Flat), Japanese adult video superstar Sola Aoi (Big Tits Zombie), Chin Siu Ho (The Lost Bladesman, Vampire Warriors, Battle of Wits), Tony Ho Wah Chiu (3-D Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy, Infernal Affairs, New Police Story), Revenge: A Love Story (cert. 18) is released on DVD and Blu-ray by Terracotta Films on January 23, 2012.
