In the Hong Kong horror thriller FAIRY TALE KILLER (追凶, Zui hung, 2012), a series of gruesome murders resembling fairy tales puzzle a hard-nosed detective.
Inspector Wong arrests a seemingly disturbed man who has confessed to a brutal murder reminiscent of a children’s fable. After the supposed victim turns up alive and unharmed, the perpetrator is dismissed as a crank and let free. Days later, the victim turns up dead with his stomach cut open and stuffed with rocks. Wong realises he has let a dangerous killer go free and becomes obsessed with tracking him down whilst covering up his mistake.
While Wong’s family life is neglected, more and more grizzly and bloody murders are committed laying reference to Cinderella, The Red Shoes and Hansel & Gretel.
