Killing In The Nude- 獻身 (1985)
KILLING IN THE NUDE (1985)
Salacious title, OK film. But it has naughty bits, so we love it anyway. Director Lee Tso-nam might be more recognized for some of his more bizarre Taiwanese films from the late 80's (KUNG FU WONDER CHILD, MAGIC WARRIORS, and MAGIC AMETHYST) than his cheapo 'chop-socky' exploits from the 70's, but his decent little number finds a home somewhere in between. Mixing vagina and vengeance, but mostly vagina, KILLING IN THE NUDE is a meager success and a worthy precursor to the period piece CAT III films from HK in the early 90's and a direct descendant of the sensually pleasurable nudies from the Shaw Bros. studios in the 70's.
The movie boast Shaw Bros. vamp, Ai Ti, as the main attraction but it's Kim Gee-mei as Orchid and Yagami Yasuko as Orchids kid sis, Hao Hao, who really get to sex and sin it up in the pic. KILLING IN THE NUDE is a lady avenger flick that my kick-ass poster makes look a lot better than it is. It's still a fun period (who knew periods could be this fun?) romp that, after wading through hokey drama and a few fleshy scenes, lives up to it's title in the end. Yowza!
Hong Kong Cinema is like sex and pizza. Even when it's bad, it's still pretty good.
I have had a love affair with Hong Kong Cinema for over 17 years now. I have accumulated over 3,000 HK films and many other HK film related items throughout those 17 years. With this blog, I am hoping to share my collection with other HK cinema fans. With my writing, I am trying to keep things light,fun,and tongue in cheek in hopes that my love affair with HK cinema continues and remains as fresh as the days I first fell in love with it. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!
