THE UNTOLD STORY 2 is part of our Vinegar Syndrome Archive collection, celebrating forgotten cinematic oddities from the video store era. This collection was inspired by our own brick & mortar video stores, with locations in Bridgeport, CT; Aurora, CO and Toronto, ON!

Unique to this line, each hand numbered limited edition release will come fitted in a specially designed, bottom loading VHS inspired slipcase, while also including a double-sided poster.

These releases will ONLY be available on our website and at participating indie retailers. Absolutely no major retailers will be stocking them. This slipcase edition (designed by Black Coffiend) is strictly limited to 5,000 units and may (but probably not) be followed by a standard edition in the future.


Cheung is in an unhappy marriage. He works with his wife at a local barbecue restaurant and she takes every opportunity to belittle Cheung and use him for his money. To make matters worse, Cheung isn't able to satisfy his wife in the bedroom. One day his wife's cousin, Fung, arrives in Hong Kong from mainland China and Cheung and Fung instantly form a connection. Fung isn't like his wife, she is respectful and treats him well. Cheung tries his best to not give in to temptation, but eventually he is overcome with desire, and he and Fung start a secret relationship behind his wife's back. However, Cheung soon finds himself way in over his head when he discovers that the mild mannered Fung is hiding a dark and grisly secret.

Best described as a Cat III version of the erotic thrillers popularized in the 90s, THE UNTOLD STORY 2 is an in name only sequel to the notorious THE UNTOLD STORY released several years earlier. Whilst not a direct sequel to the original, THE UNTOLD STORY 2 manages to outdo its predecessor when it comes to sexual content, while making sure to still deliver a hefty helping of stomach-churning violence. Starring Emotion Cheung (Bio-Zombie, The Demon's Baby) as the downtrodden husband (a role which he is adept at playing), as well as a truly unnerving performance from Paulyn Sun (Ichi the Killer), and featuring a supporting performance from the king of Cat III films himself, Anthony Wong (Ebola Syndrome), Vinegar Syndrome Archive is proud to present THE UNTOLD STORY 2 for the first time on Blu-ray in the U.S., newly restored from original film elements, and featuring all of the sex and violence one expects to see in a Hong Kong Cat III film.
