The Untold Story (1993) Blu-ray: Hong Kong’s brutal shocker

Unearthed Films is releasing director Herman Yau’s nasty and disturbing horror, The Untold Story (1993) on Blu-ray. Stars Anthony Wong.

In 1978 in Hong Kong, a grisly murder takes place. Eight years later on a Macao beach, kids discover the severed hands of a fresh victim. A squadron of coarse, happy-go-lucky cops investigate and suspicion falls on Wong Chi Hang, the new owner of The Eight Immortals Restaurant famous for its delicious pork buns. The hands belong to the missing mother of the restaurant’s former owner who has disappeared along with the rest of his family. Staff at the restaurant continue to go missing but the police can’t find any hard evidence that Wong is responsible. When he can’t produce a bill of sale proving his purchase of the restaurant, Wong is arrested and the police try to torture him into a confession. Can they make him talk? And what was in those famous pork buns?

Watch it on an empty stomach and be prepared to never look at barbecued pork buns or indeed chopsticks in the same way ever again.
