Ancient Chinese Whorehouse (1994)
Reviewed by: STSH on 2000-01-10
Summary: Cheap and barely average costume porn
The story is incoherent and episodic and, I think was written on the run, and there's lots of theft from Yui_Pui_Tsuen. Yung Hung starts playing her character as a cruel and heartless madam. When Ching won't co-operate, Ng/Hung puts her in a bath of eels - this is even more horrifying than the rape scenes. But Hung's character softens back to her usual whimpering victim role, to such an extent that Ching now considers her a friend !
The print I saw of this film was awful, and the subtitles blurry and hard to read. Thankfully, we the audience are spared the sight of Kent Cheng doing a nude sex scene ! Yung and Kent do some surreal fake sex instead.
Sex and nudity : scattered for the first hour, starts in earnest in the last 30 minutes, but there still could have been much more. Not a patch on the films it steals from.
OVERALL : Okay to pass the time, but there are better porns around.
Reviewer Score: 4
