This violent, visceral and rather bizarre film stars Singapore’s Thomas Ong and Hong Kong’s Gigi Lai. The characters’ budding romance is disrupted by a serial killer on the loose. The Hong Kong filmmakers behind the movie were based in Singapore and working for Chinese television at the time. Their aim had been to create a show based on the cases of real life forensic pathologist, the late Chao Tzee Cheng who was known for solving high-profile crimes in Singapore.
