Night club singer Sasa is murdered, and Lin Sau-Ming (Kao Yuen) seems to be a cut-out culprit: Firstly he once had an affair with Sasa, secondly she tried to blackmail him, and thirdly he was seen near the scene of the crime. So it shouldn't be surprising that he is arrested by the police and later let out only on bail. But Sau Ming's problems do not end here, since now two parties, Sasa's brother Dai Kang and crooked private eye Ma Fei are trying to blackmail him ... and when he refuses to pay up (essentially because he knows he's innocent) both blackmailers try their luck with his wife Man-Ying (Ivy Ling Po), the only one who believes in Sau-Ming's innocence - but apparently not enough to not want to pay up to Ma Fei. Only when she visits him to pay him, she finds him killed, & while Dai Kag seems to be a tailormade suspect, she witnessed him driving away beforehand ...

In her desperation, Man-Ying confides in her friend Wai-Kang (Wang Hsia) and his wife Ai-Jun (Li Hsiang-Chung) ... even though she suspects Wai-Kang of having had an affair with Sasa up until her death, and that she tried to blackmail him too. And when Man-Ying finds Sasa's necklace hidden in Wai-Kang's car, she has no more doubts that he is the killer and confides in his wife Ai-Jun ... but what she hasn't expected is that Ai-Jun knew everything about her husband's affair and killed Sasa out of jealousy and Ma Fei because he tried to blackmail her as well ... and now she prepares to kill Man-Ying too, and is only in the last minute stopped cold by her own husband ...


It might not be a great film, but Raw Passions is an effective and completely entertaining little sex-and-crime thriller that is injustly underrated by genre fans, especially compared to the excitement that often inferior sex-and-crime thrillers from that era from Italy (the so-called giallos) invariably create when released on DVD.
