Set in a surprisingly minimalist San Francisco, Patrick Tam’s stylish slasher movie manages to evoke both Antonioni and Mario Bava in this tale of a ravishing young co-ed (Brigitte Lin) whose studly boyfriend (Chang Kuo-chu) turns into a demented stalker after the suicide of his sister. —UCLA Film & Television Archive
Patrick Tam Kar Ming (traditional Chinese: 譚家明; pinyin: Tán Jiāmíng; born March 25, 1948) is a Hong Kong film director and film editor. He directed the 1987 film Final Victory, scripted by Wong Kar-wai. He edited Wong Kar-wai’s Days of Being Wild, contributing the cameo appearance of Tony Leung Chiu-Wai in the last scene, and Ashes of Time, as well as Johnnie To’s Election. As part of Hong Kong’s New Wave of film directors in the late 70s and 80s, Tam’s work enjoys great acclaim. According to Hong Kong film critic Perry Lam, writing in Muse magazine, ‘[Tam’s] unpredictable digressions and swift changes of scene can evoke a dreamer’s logic, but his sound and images are always sharp and particular.’ Tam is now associate professor of School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong. —wikipedia
I just sort of liked it. Not too thorough a recommendation, I know. I laughed at the term "pseudo-auteurish" used in a previous comment. So true, but I can look past that. The version that I saw was cut to shreds. Very easy to tell. If it wasn't so silly the fun would be gone. It is silly, so it is filed away in my retro slasher folder along with He Lives By Night, Night Caller and Devil Returns.
