Dr. Lamb (1992) aka Gou Yeung Yi Sang

3.5 / 5

Genre: Horror
Length: 89 minutes

So this is a category three film which means yes it's rather extreme...although it does take a while for the bloodbath to begin, it will begin I assure you. It's sort of the Hong Kong take on Seven (only not clever, surprising or really creepy). It's about a taxi driver who just happens to pick up women in the rain and dismembers them, slices them up and takes pictures. He is just getting busted as the film begins then of course we listen to his confession and in flashbacks we learn about his atrocities. It's simply too lighthearted and jokish in manner to be taken seriously and although some cry this is disturbing, I'd have to say it brushed right off. Still it is very easy to watch and it does have some interesting moments and things going for it, I just wouldn't say it's a classic or anything. Stick to "Ebola Syndrome" and "The Untold Story" first!
