worship is the central theme here. When a pretty student commits suicide,
it's because of her association with a secret cult of Satanists. Seemingly,
the underground religion is thriving among teenagers due to a growing
nihilistic attitude (perpetuated by the forthcoming Chinese takeover
of Hong Kong). Detective Chow [played by the underrated Ching Wan Lau]
is on a mission to find a missing coed named May [starlet Vivian Chow]
but he soon gets swallowed up by the teachings of the cult, especially
after getting tricked into a compromising sexual liaison with the very
girl he's trying to find. Lots of Black Magic, explosive violence and
an inspired performance from Anthony Wong as perverse Bishop Kwok, the
divinely ordained head of the Satanist's Church.
Yukari Oshima fans will want to see this film because of it's rarity.
However, even though she lists it on her filmography, Yukari has very
little to do. She is a nondescript member of the cult (see pic bottom
left) and a participant in a brief basketball scrimmage.
Ng shines in her role of Sister Man Ying, the cult manager and the Bishop's
main bedpartner. This was her first role after her breakout performance
KILLER. While it's true that Carrie had been making movies for
almost a decade, 1992 marked the beginning of her meteoric popularity.
She would also headline in SEX
AND ROLL COP, and FATAL
SEDUCTION. Plus, in 1993, Miss Ng was recognized with a Golden
Horse Best Actress Award [HK's 'Oscar'] for Remains of a Woman.
She is still acting in HK Cinema today.
