The Peeping Tom
Nothing like a lot of gratuitous nudity &
gore every now and then and this Category III flick has plenty.
A serial killer/rapist (Mark Cheng) is on a killing
spree in HK and he has a particular liking for ladies with nice legs; unfortunately
for them - preferably detached from the rest of their body. He spruces
up his living quarters by hanging them from his ceiling in plastic bags
- no Martha Stewart award for him. After seeing Jade in a shootout, he
takes a special liking to her (and who can blame him) and he intrudes into
all facets of her life creating a vicious game of cat & mouse with
Jade definitely in the role of the mouse. Jade is a cop though and fights
For the most part, it is a pretty standard serial
killer tale in which the killer is always a step ahead of the police. In
fact, the cops seem so incompetent in their ability to catch him that the
movie becomes a bit annoying. How difficult can it be to find a killer
when they have a picture of him and who always wears reddish shades and
drives a white van. Anyway, much nudity throughout, but usually the women
are dead with their legs cut off so it is not exactly a thrill and Jade
though never unclad (damn!) looks lovelier than ever.
Japanese actress Miho Nomoto appears as Jade's
sister and has a very long and pleasurable shower scene in the beginning
of the film.
