Interview with the director Herman Yau
Never before seen deleted scenes!
Kai San is a sleazy and despicable bastard of the most epic proportions! After being caught screwing the wife of his boss, he goes on a killing spree and flees Hong Kong. 10 years later, Kai finds himself working as a restaurant chef in South Africa. Overworked, underpaid, berated, and extorted by the restaurant owners who know of his fugitive status, Kai is a ticking timebomb...
While visiting an ebola infected tribe to purchase some discount meat for the restaurant, Kai takes time out of his busy schedule to rape a sick native woman on his way back to work. Fortunately for our anti-hero, he's a one in a million kind of guy- the kind that recovers from Ebola, yet continues to carry and spread the disease. Now he's mad, and he's not gonna take it anymore! Kai embarks on an over the top killing/raping/Ebola-spreading rampage unlike anything you have ever seen! The Ebola burgers are hot on the grill, and thebodily fluids are flowing freely!
Discotek is proud to present Ebola Syndrome in all of its debauched glory, as it is one of the funniest, most entertaining movies we have ever watched! Directed by Herman Yau (The Untold Story), and starring Anthony Wong (Infernal Affairs, Storm Riders, Hard Boiled) in a truly brilliant performance, Ebola Syndrome offers up plenty of gore and sex, tempered with a wicked sense of humor. Bon appetit!

Movie Review: This movie has been in my head for years. I wanted to see it but parts of me didn't. I don't know why. Now that I have seen it, I got to say this is a great movie. It is very sick and twisted with plenty of T&A, sex, blood and gore and yet it doesn't feel like it's overdone. The story is different and innovative especially for a Chinese movie about a sociopath raping and killing people and spreading Ebola all over Hong Kong. And to point out one more thing: I never really thought much of Anthony Wong. My exposure to him was House Of Fury (fruity), Heroic Trio and Hard Boiled. But because of this film and Taxi Hunter I'm starting to develop a fondness for Anthony Wong. Now I look forward to more Anthony Wong films (except any sissy romance drama; up yours).
Conclusion: 5 stars for the DVD and 4 1/2 for Ebola Syndrome.
That being said, I found this film to be incredibly entertaining and highly amusing. Once again, director Herman Yau and Cat III Master, Anthony Wong have teamed up for an exploitative winner. The first film I had the pleasure of viewing from this winning team was the amazing 'The Untold Story'. That film was based on a true story and was much more serious in tone. This little gem was much more exploitative and over-the-top...
I absolutely love the plot of this masterpiece. The movie starts out with a bang (literally). Anthony Wong is caught having sex with his bosses wife. He then quickly and violently dispenses with both of them. Now of course he needs to disappear so he heads to South Africa where he obtains work in a filthy restaurant. The price of meat becomes too much for him and his boss to handle so they head into the bush to acquire some 'bush-meat'. On the way back to the city he rapes one of the natives. This woman happened to have the Ebola Virus...
Luckily for us, Mr. Wong is a rare one-in-a-million case of individual who will carry the Ebola Virus without succumbing to it's terrible deadly side-effects. The rest of the film is a joy to watch as Mr. Wong careless spreads the disease to the terrified populations of South Africa and Hong Kong in various entertaining ways...
Anthony Wong is pitch perfect as the perverted psychopath and Herman Yau once again provides the deft direction needed to please use gore & sleaze fiends...
I don't want to give away too much of the plot (like it matters), but as a fan of sleaze, explotation, and gratuitous entertainment I can wholeheartedly reccomend this sweet little film. If you are a fan of wonderful Cat III filth directly from Hong Kong, the 'Ebola Syndrome' does not disapoint....
The team responsible for "The Untold Story" are back in the kitchen.
And this time, they're cooking up human pork buns in South Africa.
The only difference is these Pork Buns are chock full of the Ebola Virus!!!
Pretty much the same premise as "The Untold Story"
but without the police investigation angle, and twice the mayhem.
While "The Untold Story" was a more frightening, more believable story,
Ebola Syndrome is much more fun.
It has twice the amount of depravities as "Untold Story"
though they're not as viscious.
That was until I discovered that 99% of the deleted scenes were extended gore scenes. (Much like The Untold Story, the actual violence tends to take place offscreen)
I was a little upset to say the least.
You still get to see all the carnage taking place onscreen,
which is grotesquely beatiful
dont't get me wrong,
but the camera doesn't dwell nearly as long as it should,
which you'll see quite clearly in the deleted scenes.
Each gore scene was supposed to be a a few seconds longer.
one scene involving a chewed eye-ball was missing entirely.
So in all honesty you might want to find a different version.
(if there is one, which I'm pretty sure there isn't)
Despite the fact that this version is alledgedly unrated.
SYNOPSIS:(With almost no spoilers)
Kai gets caught in the act with his boss's wife.
His boss, furious, beats Kai about the apartment,
This confrontation ends in a triple homicide,
with their daughter as the only witness.
12 years later, Kai is working in a kitchen in South Africa,
for a frugal businesman, who, to save a little money,
decides to buy his pork from an african tribe infected with the Ebola Virus.
During their excursion Kai becomes infected, but as it turns out,
he's one of 10 million who are immune to the virus,
which makes him a carrier.
Which means anyone coming in contact with any of his bodily fluid is infected.
When they return to work, ownership of the restaurant, violently changes hands.
And the previous owners are now on the menu.
But someone recognizes Kai
remembers him from Hong Kong,
remembers what he did.
Half the movie is spoken in Chinese,
& the other half is spoken in bad english,
Which makes for quite an unintentionally hilarious combination.
It's painfully obvious that the director doesn't speak english.
Because every actor not speaking chinese, was just downright awful,
pure cardboard, like they were reading lines off an intelligible cue-card.
Their acting, to say the least, seemed out of place.
Anthony Wong however was great, in a gross kind of way.
The Depravities include:
- a severed tongue,
- ebola rape
- toothpicks to the eye
- facial urination
- porkchop masturbation
- chewed eye-ball
- child murder
MORAL OF THE STORY:
If you can't beat 'em.........
cut 'em up, and turn 'em into pork-buns.
