DAUGHTER OF DARKNESS II Starring Judy Cheung Yim-lai, Liu Kai-chi and Ho Kar-kui. Directed by Lai Kai-ming. Category III. Coming to the Mandarin circuit. THE critical and commercial success of Daughter Of Darkness has spawned the inevitable follow up. But while the original was based on a true mass murder case in China, this time around the story is purely fictitious and it shows. Director Lai Kai-ming has packed in lots of sex and violence but this movie lacks the realistic quality of its predecessor. It is a story about a couple who need an heir in order to hold on to their family fortune. The sterile husband pays a young stud $20,000 to get his wife (Judy Cheung Yim-lai) pregnant, but he falls in love with her instead. Things get nasty when Ho Kar-kui and his son photograph the couple during their rendezvous, blackmail them for $200,000 and kidnap the wife as collateral. Ho rapes Cheung and gives her syphilis into the bargain. When the husband discovers what has happened, he goes after Ho but is killed and Cheung has to take on the sordid bunch herself. It ends with a bloodbath in which everyone goes out in grotesque style. It's all done in the worst possible taste but the main thing missing from Darkness II is the strong cast of the original. Cheung, a French-Vietnamese immigrant who had a short spell with ATV as a teenager in the late '80s before joining the more lucrative social set, returns to the limelight in her screen debut. But she proves to have little talent for acting.
