I know it sounds funny, but I expected more from this. The movie is about a murderer on the run who finds a place in South Africa and works there as a chef in a restourant. One day as he was buying some pig with his boss from one of the African tribes he, well, rapes a woman and gets ebola. Apparentely, he's one in ten million who have ebola, but are not affected by it, meaning he is a carrier of the syndrome. What follows is some really disgusting, messed up stuff followed by some more disgusting and messed up stuff. Which I don't mind, but it's not done very well in this movie. There's a comedic tone over the whole film and makes the movie look even more ridiculous. The acting is okay, but the voices are weird. I don't know which version I watched, but it seemed to be dubbed, but it was still in Chinese, so I'm confused. Anyways, the story seemed interesting, but the execution was bad. I can't say much more about this film. It's not really good, but makes for an interesting watch.

The definition of bad taste is now a cult gem. Ebola Syndrome stars Anthonny Wong Chau-Sang as a selfish serial rapist/killer who flees to Africa after committing murder where he does more of the same, but unknown to him one of the victims is a carrier of the Ebola virus. He becomes a host for the virus while working in a restaurant. What can go wrong from there? The film is pretty awesome, but it needed to be more sickening and gross out. Yet, I can understand why this a favorite among fans.

One of the most entertaining silly gross-out horror comedies there is. It is just crazy. We have murder, rape, cannibalism, ebola virus, hilariously bad dialog and the worst criminal ever.

Ebola Syndrome is awesome.

If you liked Untold Story you'll love this one. Both directed by Herman Yau and starring Anthony Wong - who apparently played in a metal band at some point. Gross-out humor in this gory story of a Hong Kong killer fled to South Africa who contracts Ebola whilst raping a dead little African girl and then spreads it back to Hong Kong.

I really expected more. It is violent, disgusting, sick, sooo sick. But something is missing. Maybe it is because I watched the censored version, which make me lose a close up of the face of Kai after he eye-gouged his bosses girlfriend. But still, the flix is good and sooo sick.

Oh so bad, yet hilariously clumsy and depraved.

Terrific and demented, fully-served Hong Kong buffet with an entry of sex and gore, a salad of sexual, gross-out humor, a strong dish of sacrificial rituals involving animals accompanied with Ebola-involved rapes, tight vaginas and vomit, and cannibalism, and a desert of child abuse, masturbation with pieces of meat and very funny situations. The appetizers are liquified internal organs and graphic autopsies. To drink, the offer is urolagnia.

Bon appétit.

The main character played by Anthony Wong was so funny and at the same time scary. Imagine somebody making hamburgers from his boss and the wife's flesh and sell it to other people!

From the sadists who brought you "The Untold Story" (1993), "Raped by an Angel" (1993), and "Legendary Couple" (1995) -- that in and of itself should have spelled the permanent grounding of the sun -- "Ebola Syndrome" somehow manages to ratchet-up its predecessors' depravity quotient to the point most of us pray the twain shall never meet again. Yet as indefensible as Chau Ting's script is admittedly this is a somewhat entertaining exercise in so-called shocksploitation that owes its best moments to unintentional humor with over-the-top performances and shoddy artisanship often working in unison to undercut the film's otherwise off-color disposition.

This movie is cracked out. Anyone who loves over the top asian films needs to see this one

One of the funniest and most horrific horror comedies I've ever seen. Truly a must see.

Hilariously shitty. Disgusting. They really go for it. Even having seen Ichi the Killer and such, there were times when I wondered if I can watch this. It's also just terribly made, yet bizarrely entertaining. So it's probably better than some Anthony Wong movies that were way better but just boring like "Slim Till Dead".

Parte alla grandissima, cala vistosamente nel finale. Peccato, comunque mi sono divertito a guardarlo...

I have MUCH STRONGER opinions for this (and Dr. Lamb) than i did maybe 15 years ago. But i can't lie it's sick, twisted, wrong, but all out One can't say they didn't enjoy it.
And it makes the perfect Halloween film...

Ah Kai is a wanted convict from China who escapes to South Africa after killing his former boss. He works at a Chinese restaurant and one day travels with his boss to a South African tribe that is infected with the Ebola virus. Kai sees a dying infected tribe member and rapes her, contracting the virus. Kai, however, is immune to the infection.

It's a Funny film with none stop violence and pretty much an Asian remake of Outbreak... Mostly the scene's in Hong Kong mimic the film.

Overall very well acted but directed and it is a must see for horror fans.

This film is just wrong on so many levels that I can't even begin to start explaining it... if you love your films very un-PC, highly offensive, completely disgusting, wildly racist, overtly sexist, showing a total disregard for both human and animal life and wildly over the top then this is definately the film for you. If you are in the least bit easily shocked then give this a miss, you really won't enjoy it.

This film has little to no chance of ever being seen in the UK but is well worth hunting down if you love such titles as 'Street Trash', 'Bad Taste' or 'Brain Dead'... although it makes them seem very tame by comparison.

OK, the charachters are a little cardboard and some of the acting is terrible but it's one of those films that is a joy to watch if you love shock cinema, definately one for an evening's drinking & bad movies!!!

A killer/rapist gets infected with Ebola and spreads the desease by serving infected meat. This is over the top, misogynistic, perverse, bloody and WRONG cat-3 Chinese exploitation. Mutilation, cannibalism, rape, and much, much more. Not exactly the average sunday afternoon flick for the whole family.

Considering this film's reputation, this felt like a bit of a disappointment. I wasn't really sure exactly what to expect from it, but to be honest, it's pretty ridiculous. That doesn't mean to say it's not enjoyable. It's quite clever in places and the overall concept is incredibly disturbing. Worth watching if you're a fan of 'shock' cinema...just don't believe too much of the hype.
