The plot concerns a nice lady who has pretty bad thoughts about what will happen later that day and unfortunately something WILL happen. A man knocks the door and the nightmare begins - Hong Kong style.

The film is not sadistic even though there is little violence and some scary and harrowing moments. I can't say I didn't like it but I prefer to films which really stay in your mind and to do that there does not have to be over the top violence or effects at all. The Untold Story would've been pretty horrific without all that gore and splatter. But back to Insanity, couple of scenes are extremely fast paced and edited with talent so there are no dull moments during this film's short running time.

Simon Yam is again great as sicko psycho and other characters are also great and believable so this is OK Hong Kong horror but definitely not among the greatest achievements from there. Hong Kong fanatics will like this (at least some of them) but if you only like mainstream, forget this. IMDB

All films are rated for audio and video these can be found in the specifications in product descriptions.

Everyone rates in different ways and what maybe an 8 to me might be a 6 or 9 to you so please bear in mind that they are there as a rough guide only.

A rating of 8.5 will normally be direct from a VHS master or equivalent

9 upwards will be from good quality TV broadcasts, screeners etc.

8 and below will be from 2nd  or even 3rd generation prints from all types of master.

Fullscreen & widescreen titles are marked with  a W or F or some 16:9 or 4:3

Widescreen can mean anything from a slight scope to 16:9 anamorphic. We try and mention this in descriptions when we can.
