Directors: Danny Lee, Billy Tang
Stars: Danny Lee, Simon Yam, Kent Cheng
Loosely based on the true story of the demented Lam Kor-Wan, Dr. Lamb tells the tale of a mild-mannered taxi driver (Yam) who also happens to be a serial killer. Lee plays (you guessed it) a cop who tries to unravel the mystery of Lamb's reasoning after he finally confesses.
A truly disturbing movie along the lines of Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, Dr. Lamb is one of the creepiest movies I've ever seen. I don't scare that easily, but some of the images in Dr. Lamb (which include graphic buzz-saw "dissection" and necrophilia scenes) are truly shocking, made all the more so by Yam's eerie performance as the "good doctor."
If you think movies like Scream are scary, then you'd better stay far, far away from Dr. Lamb. It's a film that truly deserves its Category III rating.
