Pandemic – CAT III Style: Ebola Syndrome (1996)


Directed by Herman Yau, 'Yi boh lai beng duk' ('Ebola Syndrome', 1996) is an infamous Hong Kong CAT III entry. Since 1988, Category III has been Hong Kong’s most restrictive certificate – “No persons younger than 18 years of age are permitted to rent, purchase, or watch this film in the cinema.” The content of the films are extremely graphic in nature with gory depictions of violence and/or are sexually explicit. It stars Anthony Wong, who also starred in Yau’s earlier, and equally vile (in a good way), 'Bat sin fan dim: Yan yuk cha siu bau' ('The Untold Story', 1993). Kai San (Wong) is the most despicable human being you could hope not to meet – a perverted, violent, demented scumbag who has no qualms of raping and murdering.
