The most horrible person ever in cinema

Ebola Syndrome or Yi boh lai beng duk is a 1996 Hong Kong horror film about a murderous undergound criminal named Kai who contracts the Ebola virus and then proceeds to give it to people across South Africa and then later, in Hong Kong.

If you want to know the most horrible fictional non-supernatural character presented on film? Look no further Kai has the competition beat. He's a horrible person. And I mean real horrible. Everyone wants to bully him (the poor translation decides to present us with "bully" for something that would probably better be translated to "don't frak with me."

Kai literally gives people the Ebola virus, through sexual intercourse, spitting on them, and even killing, butchering, and making his boss and his wife into "African Buns" to serve at the restaurant he worked at. This is almost as horrible as how he contracted it, raping a Zulu who dies in the middle of the act. What, the film can't be as bad as I'm describing it? Sorry, it's worse.

Shocking. Disgusting. Almost surreal, the film is a disaster to look and stare at. And if you don't like it, don't bully me. But do, please check it out, won't you?
