After photos of a murder are found at a photo lab, it doesn't take long
for the police led by inspector Li (Danny Lee) to track down the guy who
has taken the photos (and committed the murders), Lin (Simon yam). But
even though there is plenty circumstantial evidence to point to Lin as the
killer, it isnt enough to get him convicted, and thus the police tries to
force a confession out of him, even if that means torturing him. When this
doesn't prove successful in the least Li decides to use his family, whom
he still lives with, against him, in which he succeeds after he finds
photos proving that Lin has sexually abused his niece. Only the pressure
of his family makes him confess, makes him tell the police how his
childhoodmade him an outcast and pervert, how he killed his first victim,
a hooker, during a stormy night after unsuccessfully trying to lose his
virginity, and how he soon became obsessed with dead women, collected
their breass, photographed and filmed them, even raped them.
convicted to death, but before execution, he demands to see inspector Li
once more - only to ask him to return his photographs and films of the
dead women to him ...
On the surface, this plays like a police
procedural - but actually, this film above everything else tries to pile
as many shock scenes of both the sexual and the gory variety on top of
each other as humanly possible. And since Dr. Lamb does this in
such a sensationalist manner and takes itself very seriously while doing
so, it's almost endearing to trash enthusiasts like myself.
said, Dr. Lamb is not a good film, not even a genre classic, it's
just incredibly cute when it tries to be disgusting (though at times it
overdoes it and only borders the ridiculous).
