If you liked Untold Story you'll love this one. Both directed by Herman Yau and starring Anthony Wong - who apparently played in a metal band at some point. Gross-out humor in this gory story of a Hong Kong killer fled to South Africa who contracts Ebola whilst raping a dead little African girl and then spreads it back to Hong Kong.

Delivers some infected love
C. Christopher Blackshere | I am the devil's reject | 06/24/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Knock knock.
Joe Mama gave me a disease.

The deadly Ebola Virus. Symptoms are compulsive sweating, coughing, sneezing, dizziness, fever, headaches, diarrhea, vomitting, seizures, profusive bleeding, dissolution of internal organs, and death.

Knock knock.
Ben raped and infected lately?

Ebola can be contracted by a combination of the following: Bathing in the blood of animal sacrifices, having intercourse with uncooked food, injecting drugs with open sores while African insects swarm everywhere, and being violated by a disgusting coughing sneezing puking carrier.

Knock knock.
This flick is disGUSting fun. 4.5 Stars."
Guilty Almost-Pleasure

"Before I watched this film, one of my friends stated that it's "as nasty and low as a movie can possibly be. Nothing will shock you after you see this." Well, he was right. In this flick, Anthony Wong, portraying a sick restaurant owner, turns his back to all of today's morals and taboos as he performs actions that cause him to catch and spread the Ebola virus. For instance, in one scene, he first rapes an innocent woman, promptly kills her, then saws her to bits, grinds her up into hamburger meat, then feeds the meat to the customers in his restaurant. And that's certainly not the only example of low morale! When the spread of the virus is eventually connected to him, Anthony first realizes that he has Ebola in his system, and then uses it as a threat to all who attempt to catch him (as he cuts holes in his arms and spits the blood out to those who don't heed his warning, thus infecting them). Several intricate fighting sequences and fast action accompany the stomach-churning sequences, providing much-needed distraction. Admittedly, this movie satisfies the cravings that many have for the complete indulgence of one's cravings, regardless of the consequences brought about and the rules broken. Even those who declare this movie to be unfit to watch and forbid their children to ever set eyes upon it will still get a guilty pleasure out of the observation of the utter sickness of Wong's actions. Also, like in most famous Hong Kong action movies, the lightning-quick, dazzling action sequences will leave you mesmerized. Still, after the movie's conclusion, you will find yourself having trouble eating and sleeping every so often as the more graphic, gory scenes pay a quick visit to your memory. They're easy to brush off, but unpleasant nonetheless. However, they will fade sooner or later, making Ebola an experience to remember, but not repeat."
Hollywood wishes it was this cool.

"Definitely one of my favorites of it's kind, this is one of the best Cat3 film's out there, and that's saying alot. The story is about a viscious killer who gets infected by the ebola virus after raping a girl, then spreads the virus in South Africa and Hong Kong causing people to convulse (oozing with bodily fluids) in violent seizures. There are some really great special effect's (one scene evern reminded me of the Guini Pig series), eyeball's being sucked out, private area's being stabbed, autopsy's, some unforgiving rape scenes, and really good production values. Fans of Untold story should check this out, Anthony Wongs' performance is brilliant as usual. Highly recommended to fans of bad-a** cinema.

*This version is uncut and in it's full length, not sure why one of the other reviewers said it was not."
