Evil Instinct (1996) Carrie Ng | Diana Pang CAT III
Hong Kong/Chinese title JI DOU SHOU XING [Extreme Animal Nature]
director: Barry Chu [Chu Wa Kwong]
starring: Carrie Ng · Diana Pang · Bowie Lam · Chung Sau Han · Li Rong
(Carrie Ng) and Wendy (Diana Pang) are co-workers and best friends until
Wendy begins offering her clients kinky S&M sessions. Penny feels
that she's been slighted by her friend, but that she's getting old and
can't compete with Wendy.
So, Penny leaves Hong Hong for the wilderness where she ritualistically
ingests snake blood to 'cleanse' herself. She then returns to Hong Kong
Chu's film is a VERY sleazy production (obviously inspired by the International
hit Basic Instinct). He was a studio assistant director
for many big budget films including the SWORDSMAN
series. Here - with one of his few projects in the director's chair
- he pulls no punches and goes directly for the extreme fringes of the
CAT III arena [perhaps a last gasp effort before the pending Chinese
take over of the HK studios].
it's true that Carrie Ng has been making movies for almost four decades
(well over 100 films), her breakout didn't come until 1992 with NAKED
KILLER. She would go on to headline a unique collection of projects,
ranging from arthouse to crass exploitation. Genre fans probably know
her best for the CAT III stuff like SEX
MEDUSA and FATAL
SEDUCTION. But, in 1993, Miss Ng was recognized with a Golden
Horse Best Actress Award for REMAINS
OF A WOMAN. She is still active today with HUNGRY
GHOST RITUAL and ZOMBIOLOGY
