Notorious Hong Kong Serial Killer Pic, “The Untold Story” Coming To Disc This Fall

Tuesday, September 22, 2020 | News

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?

 

One of the most talked-about movies in Hong Kong history, THE UNTOLD STORY (1993) was directed by Herman Yau (Ebola Syndrome), and, despite its reputation nabbed actor Anthony Wong (Hard Boiled) an award for “Best Actor” at the 13th Hong Kong film awards.  Unearthed Films is proud to release the most notorious Category III film (a sort of Hong Kong version the U.K.’s “video nasties” list) ever produced in the region! Comedic, intense, and downright unforgivable, THE UNTOLD STORY is truly a masterpiece of horror cinema that once seen, can never be forgotten.
