UK video release of this title has been troubled and the certificate was twice rejected by the BBFC in 1997. It was eventually passed in November 1998 after 6 mins 20 secs of distributor pre-edits and a further 4 mins 42 secs of BBFC cuts including extensive edits to rape scenes, an erotic dance, shots of a woman tied to a chair, dialogue edits, and the climactic fight between a woman and the rapist.

Worthy but altogether different follow-up to NAKED KILLER
Advertised in some places as a sequel to NAKED KILLER, this is a much different film in style and tone but using some of the same principal cast members. NAKED KILLER had a joyful exuberance in its blackly comic tale of rival lesbian hitwomen. RAPED BY AN ANGEL is a much more grim tale of male/female relations both tender and brutal. In typical Hong Kong film fashion, the cute scenes of Yau and Yam dating are intercut with the brutality of prolonged rape in a parallel story. Like I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE, the multitude of violent rape scenes make this a repellent film viewing experience while also being fascinating in its shameless exploitation of rape as entertainment, despite the use of comic relief to make this more acceptable to a wider audience. While never eroticized, what this ultimately does is trivializes the act. The film is undeniably effective but just don't expect another NAKED KILLER even though Chingmy Yau gets to play another tough chick character. Well cast and slickly-lensed, this is not a film to watch on a first date.
