Shiga Lin yesterday attended her film WHEN GEEK MEETS SERIAL KILLER (YEH LONG YU MA LEI)'s press conference. The film was based on comic book creator Cheng Kin Wo's work and he personally directed. Thus yesterday a Cheng Kin Wo, Tang Chi Fai's JOURNEY TO THE WEST original draft exhibit" took place and invited two master class comic book creators Ma Wing Shing and Yau Fuk Lung as the guest hosts.
The original comic book featured blood and dark humor, so WHEN GEEK MEET SERIAL KILLER received a category III rating for its Hong Kong release. Shiga Lin revealed that the film had bloody and violent stories, but her scenes were mainly action and had less blood.
The film company earlier released stills in which Shiga Lin had sexy and seductive scenes. Reportedly her wealthy boyfriend broke up with her over them. Shiga Lin denied. "Magazine reports often would exaggerate. Now I am very happy with both my personal life and work." Speaking of Hong Kong viewers might not be able to accept the subject, was she worried about the box office? Shiga Lin admitted, "(Viewers) would be very extreme, they like what they like. When they don't accept it they would be very resistant."
