Just don't ask about the mystery meat: 'Claypot Curry Killers' mother-daughter murderers and restaurant operators are played by (from left) Pearlly Chua, Olivia Kang, Debbie Goh and Mandy Chen.
Better late than never, Claypot Curry Killers finally makes it past the censorship board but goes straight to TV.
LOCAL slasher flick Claypot Curry Killers will finally make its debut on the small screen after being blocked twice in the past three years by the local censorship board.
In the gore-laden movie, a rundown claypot curry house suddenly becomes a bustling eatery. Its unsuspecting customers are excited about the delicious new recipe but are unaware of the dark secret behind the restaurant’s success.
Directed by James Lee (Histeria, 2008), Claypot Curry Killers revolves around a restaurant run by Mrs Chew (Pearlly Chua) and her three beautiful young daughters Xixi (Debbie Goh), Xiyu (Mandy Chen) and Ximei (Olivia Kang), who go to extremes in taking revenge on the men who hurt them.
Beauty-queen-turned-actress Goh plays abused daughter and cold-blooded killer Xixi who uses fresh human meat in her mother’s claypot curry business, following in the vein of other cannibalistic flicks like human meat buns in Hong Kong’s The Untold Story (1993), human meat pies in Hollywood’s Sweeney Todd (2007), and human meat noodles in Thailand’s Meat Grinder (2009).
Goh’s co-stars in the movie (also known as A Woman’s Vengeance) include Steve Yap who plays Xiyu’s love interest Dr Cheong, Ernest Chong as Ximei’s classmate Kenny, Jeff Chin as rival restaurateur Master Chef Chow, and Elvis Chin who plays the chef’s boyfriend Michael.
As the Chinese-language horror thriller marks Goh’s Malaysian film debut, the Miss Malaysia Chinese International 1998 winner expressed her disappointment in a recent interview with Cinema Online that Claypot Curry Killers would not be shown in local cinemas.
But the two-time Golden Awards most popular actress winner also had good news to share. She has already nabbed a meatier role in her next local production, where she will be headlining a Chinese action comedy entitled Bullets Over Petaling Street, which is due to hit local screens during the Lunar New Year.
Wonder what revenge tastes like? Catch Claypot Curry Killers exclusively on Astro First (Ch 480) on Oct 10.
