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 back.
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.

She lost in the semi-finals and for a while took on various employment from sales clerk to modeling. She was introduced to D&B film company and they hired her to make her debut film - Black Cat  - for which she won Best New Performer.
