three guys in Lansing, Michigan demanded it! This belated sequel
to the classic shocker The Untold Story is a tamer, more
politically correct bloodbath. Pauline Suen is the resident psycho,
a Mainland babe who seduces her cousin's husband (a subdued Emotion
Cheung Kam-Ching). When her cousin (Yeung Fan) objects (no big
surprise there), Suen proceeds to off her and use her carcass
for roast ribs. Then it's lunch time.
Unlike the first film's "drawn
from the headlines" storyline, this sequel is all fiction.
That probably explains why the plot is so canned and manufactured.
Case in point: sure the cousin is killed and turned into Texas
BBQ, but the cousin also happened to be a shrill, evil woman who
only incurred audience anger. No kids or grandmas get chopped
up in this film, so Suen's psycho is less disturbing than Anthony
Wong's evil restauranteur. Wong makes an appearance in this film
too, but he plays the stock character of a cop who also happens
to be a friend of one of the main characters. He suspects that
Suen is a little batty, and soon is on her tail.
This film could have used Herman Yau's
sure handling, but it's just one of those knock-off sequels that
bears little resemblance to its inspiration. Ng Yiu-Kuen directs
the film like the product that it is, and the result is an almost
passionless Category III movie. As such, it sullies the memory
of the original, which was so gleefully demented that it probably
caused nightmares and a drop in dim sum revenue. (Kozo 1998)
