Hey everybody! This Week In Sleaze episode 2 is up and runnin'! Sleazy K and I shoot a 2 1/2 hour juicy nugget into your waxy ears. This week we discuss at length some more CAT III goodness as the 1992 genre classic DR. LAMB is dissected, it's mid 80's predecessor HONG KONG BUTCHER is unearthed and chopped to bits, and we end on a rape and murder spree with our Last Movies Watched segment. K spits and foams about an IFD revenge thriller DEADLY DARLING as I gleefully spin about HK smut obscurity, THE RAPING MURDERER. Download this eventual crust stain right NOW!


DR. LAMB (1992)

In conjunction with the podcast release, since we spew about DR. LAMB and other Billy Tang Hin-sing flicks, I figured I would throw ya'll a few poster images from a few of my favorite Tang films. The DR. LAMB poster above I bought many moons ago and already in awfully damaged condition. And even this mangled version wasn't so cheap. It came folded, as most HK posters do, and just ravaged by use. It is a poster I hold dear, though, and will hopefully eventually upgrade and then frame.

The Jars Murderer


Rainy Nights Killer




Below is another dogged poster from my collection and of one of my all time favorite HK films, STREET OF FURY. STREET OF FURY is Tang's semi tongue in cheek take on the 'Goo Wat Jai' or YOUNG AND DANGEROUS genre. Released in 1996, the same year as the first 3 Y&D films, STREET OF FURY is just as violent, vibrant, funny, sharp, and edgy as the Y&D films but sadly lost in the muddle. It scrapes and nicks the CAT III genre without taking it into racy extremes. Well, not TOOOO racy.

It kinda pisses me off a bit that these posters weren't kept in better condition before I purchased them. But as a 'collector' of sorts and relegated to a tiny apartment, I can definitely see how difficult it is to sustain posters in pristine condition. I am much better off with these crumpled works of art than without them, though. I just love 'em so!

Below is a short scene and one of the most memorable ones from Tang's STREET OF FURY. Poor Teresa Mak Ga-kei. I fell in love with her while watching this movie. Unfortunately her career hasn't panned out as I had hoped? Here, you can see how Tang pushes the envelope into CAT III-lite territory as Teresa gets brutalized by some dirty triads. One of my favorite scenes of all-time. Enjoy!

Below is another wonderful scene from STREET OF FURY. A young triad chopper wielding punk, small potato rumble in the streets of HK. Eat your heart out YOUNG AND DANGEROUS!

  1. A very evocative last paragraph Kingwho? Unfortunately I had to make do with listening during breaks and commuting whilst at work!

    Loved the episode, I'm staggered by your knowledge of the films and in particular all the actors, not to forget Sleazy K too.

    The poster is really cool and must be unbelievably rare these days, what kind of ball park are we talking for how much it cost and how long ago if you don't mind me asking?

  2. hahaha I just figured people could unwind from a stressful day with a few pleasurable experiences. One with the podcast and the other with themselves =P

    Thanks for the kind words. I think Sleazy K and I do an OK job and we work well off of each other. I like that it's not a dueling critic kind of a thing and that we both love the films we are speaking about but have different styles in the way we give represent our info. I'm still new at this so I get stumped sometimes and have difficulty thinking on the fly but hpefully I will get better? Thanks again, AHND!

    the Dr. lamb poster I bought about 10 years ago, early on in my Ebay days. It was thoroughly roughed up, creased, torn, folded....you name it, and it still went for about $40. It was said to be an original? Probably not worth that price in the condition it's in, though?

  3. Yeah, you and Sleazy K sound like you have been friends for ever, just shooting the shit about your favourite movies, thats why the show is so enjoyable.

    Dude, I'm sure its worth the $40 to you, thats all that matters, I guess IF you could find one for sale now it would be going for more than that.

  5. Hmmm? I just tried and it downloaded? Hmmmm? I will check into it. Thanks, OCD! =)

    Street of Fury is overlooked. Too bad since it's a really entertaining film.
