The Intruder (1997)
Dark disturbing tale that will fry your brain.
The plot has a young women living in Mainland China killing another girl and taking her identity. Once in Hong Kong she takes effectively kidnaps a man and holds him taped up for some dark design involving her husband who is attempting to cross into Hong Kong.
Bleak. Nasty. Violent. This is an ugly ugly movie that will curl your hair. No one and nothing is safe. This woman is every man, woman, child and dog's worst nightmare, there seems to be nothing this woman won't do.
Its frightening to watch as this woman kills anyone or anything that gets in her path. The fact that she seems like a really nice girl makes it tough to believe, worse is that she seems so rational, even though its clear she's not. Her disease is so profound that you can't be sure whats really going on until the final credits role.
I don't know if I liked it or can recommend it- even to people who like this sort of thing. I do know that I probably need a hot shower to get the slime off me.
