The untold story 1993 trailer

The Eight Immortals Restaurant: The Untold Story is a 1993 Hong Kong crime-thriller film directed by Herman Yau and starring Danny Lee and Anthony Wong.


The Untold Story movie scenes

The film is based on the Eight Immortals Restaurant Murder that took place in August 4, 1985 in Macau. While the massacre involving a family of 10 did occur at the Restaurant, the alleged cannibalism is sensationalism inferred from the incomplete discovery of the victims' corpse, only finding limbs, and that there was a lack of telltale smell of decomposition despite the summer tropical heat.

The Untold Story movie scenes

The film was followed up by two unrelated sequels with The Untold Story 2, featuring Wong returning in a supporting role, and The Untold Story 3 with Stephanie Chan in another supporting role.

The Untold Story movie scenes

The story opens with Wong Chi-hang (Anthony Wong) fleeing the Hong Kong police, who are after him for murder. He winds up in Macau, where he takes a job as a cook at the 8 Immortals restaurant. After getting busted for cheating at a game of Mahjong, Wong kills the owner and the family, taking over the restaurant himself. Meanwhile, the police, led by officer Lee (Danny Lee) are called out to a local beach. It seems that a bag of decomposing body parts has washed ashore.

The Untold Story movie scenes

The police begin to suspect Wong has both something to do with the washed up body parts and the disappearance of the family. Wong continues to gleefully murder any of his employees who suspect what might be going on . . . disposing of their bodies in a most interesting way.

Wong is captured near the middle of the film and placed in jail. The cops need a confession, so they place him in a cell with a relative of one of his victims in the hopes that he can beat it out of Wong.

Category III rating

In Hong Kong, due to its explicit and disturbing depictions of sex and violence involving the Wong Chi-hang character, The Untold Story was awarded a Category III rating (Persons Aged 18 and Above Only), the equivalent of the United States' NC-17 or X-ratings.


The Untold Story won its only nomination, with Anthony Wong winning his first award for Best Actor at the 13th Hong Kong Film Awards.
