Film description

Evil incarnated roams through the streets of Hanoi, it travels in an ambulance and feeds on human flesh. On top of that, its genes infect the younger generation – the cannibal doctor has a young son with similar tastes. They both become the targets of Vu, who wants to avenge the death of his girlfriend, a victim of the degenerates. In a series of non-chronological episodes, the vortex of violence draws in a number of other people.

A brutal, grotesquely bloody, shockingly disgusting and cleverly looped plot is a bizarre poem bout bestiality and hatred, surprisingly combining art-house cinema and gore conventions. The film, intended only for the audiences with nerves (and stomachs of steel, is a mischievous pastiche of the brutality of mass culture, in which violent images are ad popular as fast food.
