     What can be said about Ebola Syndrome?  Sick, nasty, perverted, disgusting piece of trash?  Yep and ain't it great!  I am totally a fan of sicko movies.  Provided they have artistic relevance and value and yes I believe Herman Yau's Ebola Syndrome falls under that heading. 
I saw this for the first time about ten plus years ago when I bought it at a convention before I had such access to the internet sites I do now so at that point in time it was a real find for me and my sick movie collection.  It follows the exploits of Kai (Anthony Chau-Sang Wong) who is just an all around evil, selfish motherfucker end of story.  He rapes, he murders, he emotionally scars young children, he is just generally does whatever the hell he wants.  He works at a restaurant and is unhappy with life and tired of being "bullied" which is a laugh for me because there are two big subjects in the media nowadays Ebola and Bullying.
So Kai needs some pork at the restaurant and his boss has been dealing with the local African tribesman for butchered pigs.  Problem is however when they get there the tribe has contracted the Ebola virus and while Kai doesn't lay a finger on anyone at the tribe he does however manage to sneak off and rape one of the tribeswomen.  Upon doing this Kai becomes infected with the Ebola Syndrome and heads back to the restaurant to make some burgers mmmmmmm.  Without going into a lot spoiling details Kai goes on with a gory killer spree and flees to his hometown of Hong Kong to escape.  All the while he's doing this he continues spreading the Ebola Syndrome by wiping his mouth, nose, and even jerking off with a
piece of meat in the kitchen of the restaurant.  I really cannot recommend this film enough for any fan of Asian films or sicko perverted films.  It's filled with gore, rape, nudity, sex, and some pretty damn fine kills involving heads being torn off and even smashed to bloody greatness.  Awesome movie.  Great acting by Anthony Chau-Sang Wong who wasn't so happy after the fact when it was made from what I've read.
