The Terrorizers

  • 1986, 1986, 109minmins, 35mm

  • Cast: Cora Miao, Lee Li-Chun, Chin Shih-Chieh, Gu Bao-Ming

Amidst Taipei’s wailing sirens and cold-blooded ambition, friends turn on each other and love is rejected with a stock phrase, three sets of characters collide with terrible consequences. A single gunshot jumpstarts the action, but this mysterious crime is matched by others that are just as (un)real. Three couples are drawn into the intrigue, but no easy resolutions can be found. Yang didn’t like being compared to Antonioni, but the Italian master would have enjoyed this complex, chilling crime story.
