There actually is no naked killer in Naked Killer, but that's about all this mad, adults-only comic book action roller coaster is missing. Flirty, feral Chingmy Yau gives an abusive jerk an impromptu vasectomy in front of ... more »cop Simon Yam, an impotent detective who vomits whenever he draws his gun. He's tracking a series of sex murders where all the male victims are missing their private organs when he falls in love with chief suspect Chingmy. She's subsequently recruited by the real killer, a hit woman who targets rapists at large and practices on drooling sex-mad psychos chained up in the attic. When they finally head out for the real thing, they take out victims in a display of midair somersaults, cracking whips, flying ropes, and flashing guns. This kind of foreplay attracts the lustful attentions of rival assassin Carrie Ng, a lesbian killer ready to abandon her purring sex kitten for the savage Chingmy. This is one of the most energetically gonzo Hong Kong logic bombs ever made, a crazy melodrama that revels in absurd extravagance, sick humor (you may never eat link sausage again), and pure adrenaline-driven displays of gymnastic action and orgiastic gunplay. Incoherence is a small price to pay for such guilty delights. --Sean Axmaker« less
"Standard martial arts movie plot: talented but unschooled natural meets wise master, enters arduous training, but master is suddenly killed by rogue former student, and natural must seek vengence... Except those involved are lesbian Chinese killer babes. Very stylish, funny, charmingly mis-anthropic (main male character is impotent cop, who throws up at sight of gun!).The DVD seems to have a few more scenes than the World Video VHS, and much better subtitling, which is important, since the subtitles are hilarious ("I'll burst your tits!"). Highly reccomend for fans of genre. Pub shots from this movie on cover of "Essential Guide to Deadly China Dolls.""

""Naked Killer" is an outrageously trashy yet derivative Hong Kong action-thriller for the "Basic Instinct" crowd. The movie has its legion of admirers, but this sort of kinetic mayhem was better served by filmmakers such as John Woo and Tsui Hark. Caveat emptor!"

"It's like a Technicolor wet dream filled with sexy Asian people, sexuality, sensuality, love, hate, art, death, the art of sex & violence, poisoned lipstick, dismembered sex organs, fashion, pop culture, trends, disturbances, diseased minds, diseased scums of the Earth, lesbians, beauty, etc... This is THE masterpiece! ...the most beautiful movie I have seen! This is better than 'Robotrix' & 'Sex & Zen'!"

"What do you get when you mix together a bunch of very hot (yeeooww!) lesbian hit ladies. A great entry point for the uninitiated in the world of subtitled Hong Kong flicks. Yea, I love Fellini, Polanski, Welles, Hitchcock...all the great directors....love their stuff. But for a film that is just soooo damn sexy (the female cast is incredible, I wanted them to kill me!) you can't go past this all out action thrill fest. No, it's not deep, you don't get an understanding for the human condition, but you get an understanding of how sexy an action flick can be. You can well and truley keep Arnold Schwartzewhatever, I'll take Kelly Yao anyday."
Good Picture Quality... but Incomplete

"I have seen the movie a few times and in my opinion this DVD edition is the best in term of picture quality. Unfortunately it is incomplete. Murder scene in the swimming pool is heavily cut (is it too violent?)"
