Exploitation thriller starring madman Anthony Wong!

Amazing sleazy adult psycho exploitation/thriller! This one woman goes blind but the blindness will only last for 3 days. When her husband (a rich doctor) is going somewhere away for work, Anthony Wong (greatest Hong Kong actor ever) comes in to trap and terrorize her in her own home. Wong seemed like a friend just visiting at first but slowly we discover how messed up in the head he was and why he's doing this (there's actually a very fascinating story behind everything and you question who the bad guy truly is in the grand scheme of things). The girl's blindness makes her easy to torture and hold captive so Wong's insanity is even more threatening, lots of surprises and twists you'll have never seen coming. My favorite twist has to do with "steak". Most hilarious scene though is the "shower scene". The unsuspecting girl had no idea what Wong's depraved character was doing as he stood right behind her naked wet body. Decent amount of sexual harassment, verbal abuse, and violence with some blood (scissor castration, stabbings, fights) but not as graphic as Anthony Wong's other movies like "Ebola Syndrome", "Untold Story", or the lesser known "Love to Kill".

Turbo Charged version of "Wait Until Dark"

Interesting combination of talent got together here to make one of the classic movie from the silver age of Hong Kong cinema. Veronica Yip plays the part of a housewife who's temporarily blind, and Anthony Wong plays the part of a handyman who's infatuated with her. The movie plays little like "Wait until Dark" - an another classic by Audry Hepburn, but this is a turbo charged version of that movie. Veronica Yip was a rising star at the time, and this is one of her earlier works that exploited her Asian beauty, and Anthony Wong was a relative new comer to the Hong Kong cinematic scene. Neither of them had been given much opportunity to increase their acting experience, but their acting skills skyrockets in the coming years, and becomes much sought after talents in the industry. Even in this early works of theirs, their on screen presence is unmistakable. This in my opinion is what "Wait until Dark" should have been. The clever sexual angle with the blindness, and the danger of being sexually exploited should have been the theme of that movie also. The risk of getting raped gains high voltage when the actor is so beautiful. In the end, the movie is surprisingly "normal" probably due to the talent of the two stars. It's not a vulgar movie, and can be viewed as a suspenseful drama with a twist. The producers chose good pair of talent to make this movie, and it's now another Hong Kong movie classic.

Not a Wong classic, but sleazy enough to be worth a watch.

Veronica Yip stars as the beautiful, busty and (temporarily) blind wife of Dr. Jack Ng, a successful heart specialist. Unfortunately, Mrs. Ng is also blind to her husband's philandering ways—it seems that the good doctor likes to take 'extra special care' of some of his female patients. When Dr. Ng leaves his sightless wife for a few days (in the care of their maid), Sam (Anthony Wong), the wronged husband of one of Jack's conquests, seizes his chance to terrorise poor Mrs. Ng (and the maid) and lay in wait for the doctor's return. Anthony Wong, star of classic Cat III movies The Untold Story and The Ebola Syndrome, once again proves his 'lunatic' credentials by playing yet another complete maniac, albeit one with a reason for his behaviour. When he first arrives at the doctor's house, he introduces himself to Mrs. Ng as an old acquaintance of her husband's. Now this being Anthony Wong, a lot of people would immediately call the police, but Mrs. Ng is blind, so she can't tell who it is, and she invites him in. Before you know it, her guest is taking full advantage of his situation, hopping in the shower with the buxom babe when she thinks she is alone, playing mean tricks on her (he cooks the family dog and serves it up as 'steak') and generally making her life hell. Towards the end of the film, Psycho Sam goes into overdrive and becomes a knife wielding, rapist/killer hell-bent on revenge. With a story like that, Three Days of a Blind Girl could've been a masterpiece of Cat III excess, but although it's heart is in the right (or should that be wrong) place, the film isn't a complete success thanks to a plodding pace and little in the way of explicit nastiness. Much of the horror is suggested, and even the most gory scene (a multiple stabbing) is less bloody than many other films of the genre. Sensational moments that wimp out a tad include a spot of genital mutilation, and a bit where Mrs. Ng has to hurriedly find a place to hide a phone battery (use your imagination). As the story progresses, the film does get better, and the finalé, which sees Mrs. Ng regaining her sight and fighting back is great stuff. It's just a shame that a film with such a potential to be an exploitation legend doesn't go all out to deliver the goods.
