Synopsis: Red to Kill is a very effective horror/exploitation movie for a few reasons. First, the movie has a very ominous look to it — full of dark blues and cast shadows — which gives the viewer a spooky feeling throughout the movie. Secondly, the brutality in the film works. It’s graphic, it’s intense…it will scare the hell out of or, at the very least, disgust you. This movie’s scenes stuck in my mind, unlike many others in the genre (both in HK and elsewhere) which blend together after a while. And finally, one cannot understate the power of the acting in this movie. Acting in genre films tends to usually get overlooked in favor of blood and sex, but here director “Bloody” Billy Tang manages to get some good performances out of his actors. Red to Kill definitely is not for everyone, even for horror or exploitation fans. It is “excessively grim, salacious, vile, offensive and sleazy,” but it’s also one of the most intense viewing experiences you will ever have.
