Description: The New Beverly presents a midnight screening of a Hong Kong action-science-fiction film, selected by Quentin Tarantino. The story involves a madman who transfers his consciousness into the body of a human-looking robot and then proceeds to rape women to death. The exploitation trash element is juxtaposed with silly comic hijinx that seem dropped in from another movie. It’s just as outrageous as it sounds and must be seen to be believed.

1991, Hong Kong, 35mm, 94 minutes
directed by Jamie Luk; starring Amy Yip, Chikako Aoyama, David Wu, Billy Chow
