Comparison between the BBFC 18 VHS by MIA, which contains the old HK theatrical version that can also be found on the first HK DVD issue by Mei Ah, and the BBFC 18 DVD by Hong Kong Legends, which contains the uncut and uncensored HK reissue.
A total of 8 minutes and 19,5 seconds are missing from 12 cut scenes.
The release history of Naked Killer, the probably most famous of the Cat III movies, is more or less comparable to the one of Jet Li's Black Mask, which is also very confusing. There are really many astonishing parallels: Naked Killer was also precensored in HK, there are different export versions, exclusive plot scenes and no single version featuring all of the known footage. This comparison and a line of related ones aims to make things more clear and possibly close the chapter Naked Killer in that aspect, although most of the contained information will be aimed at hardcore HK fans with a general interest in the version history of the movie.

Kitty: But how about having no weapons?
Sister Cindy: Use your Brain! We're women, our body is a weapon too!
She proudly touches her breasts.
Kitty: How about if we have no tits?
Sister Cindy: Can you let me touch a bit longer?... Men, just to please them! No matter you have big tits or small tits, it doesn't matter! Just to make them happy!
Kitty: Can you explain it? I am a killer, but not a hooker!
Sister Cindy: It's just the same!
Kitty: Big tits, small tits, even no tits... No big deal!
The two of them go to the next room.
Sister Cindy: Come on, beat me!
Kitty: I have a knive, I have advantage!
Kitty pulls out a knife and attacks sister Cindy. She is able to dodge Kitty's attacks and then throws her to the ground. Then she grabs her leg and twists it around a little. Kitty screams in pain.
Sister Cindy: You are useless, why do you still cry for help? Just think how to defeat me!
Kitty: You are twisting my leg! How can I rebel?
Sister Cindy: OK, now twist my leg!
They switch positions.
Kitty: You would be in deep shit!
Sister Cindy throws herself to the floor now to enable Kitty to attack her. When Kitty tries to twist sister Cindy's leg around, the latter turns and kicks Kitty to the side which makes her fall to the ground.
Kitty: I am hurt! Stop...!
Inside the bedroom: Kitty sits in front of the mirror while sister Cindy massages her. During the conversation, sister Cindy again and again touches Kitty's breasts.
Sister Cindy: The principle of killing, anything you get in your hand will become a killing weapon! Besides knife or sword, high heel shoes, socks and teeth brush...!
Kitty: Teeth brush?
Sister Cindy: I used a teeth brush to stab into a man's nose! It reached the brain and he was killed. But the most powerful weapon is our bodies! No matter men or women! Just
to make them impulse, that is the weakest time! No one can resist from that! At that time, that's the most perfect moment to kill!
Kitty and sister Cindy are sitting on the sofa. Sister Cindy constantly touches Kitty's leg.
Sister Cindy: To kill with full confidence, you should study the target's information first! So
you can pose him to be your enemy! To make a file for him you should know his living habit, the place he goes often! His hobby, his merits and his shortcomings, and his temper too! Even his sex habit! Sex is the wonder habbit of us! No matter men or women, they will be attracted by sex! One of our senior, she is a lesbian!
Sister Cindy: Stop mentioning about her. Anyway, you should know pretty well about your enemy. Let me teach you how to make that file!
Kitty takes a file out from under the pillow.
Kitty: Isn't it so?
Sister Cindy: How do you have my file?
Kitty: I searched your stuff when you went out!
Sister Cindy: Don't you afraid I would discover that?
Kitty: You went to Mainland 4 years ago! I think you have forgotten that thing. You are named Shaw Bing! You are 35 years old, Scorpio! You wear 36D bra. You have the habit of drinking red wine! You don't have sex life for a long time!
Sister Cindy: How do you know that?!
Kitty: You masturbated twice in these 5 nights!
Sister Cindy: How dare you peep me!
Kitty: I peep you every night. Don't shout so loud next time! Or neighbors can hear it!
Sister Cindy: You are bad enough!
Kitty: Remember? We are killers!
Sister Cindy: But I tell you. Those I killed were all bad eggs who deserved being killed! Only our senior, she loves money only! She will kill her own dad too!
Kitty: You don't want to mention her!
Sister Cindy: She is the most famous killer in our circle! You will meet her sooner or later! But be careful!
Kitty: I know she is powerful!
Sister Cindy: How do you know that? Sie holt noch eine Akte hervor.
Kitty: If not so, you won't make her file!
Sister Cindy: You are really smart. But we should be careful!
The severed penis which the police is looking for is dropped in the box of food next to Tinam without anybody noticing it.
Tinam and Kitty are sitting inside the car a little logner. Then follows this conversation:
Tinam bends forward to Kitty and addresses her by her name. Kitty finishes her lip makeup.
Kitty: I'm Hil-qun! Please don't come and see me again!
Tinam: What are you doing? You were so different a moment ago!
Kitty: You're right! I was forced to make love with you! I don't know you!
Kitty gets out of the ar. Tinam holds her back by grabbing her arm – he wants to continue talking. Again he calls her by her nickname.
Kitty: I'm Shang Hil-qun from Singapore! I've got the documents to prove it!
She gives Tinam the evidence.
Kitty: Take it back!
Tinam: You're lying! You're Kitty, don't deny it!
Kitty: I am not!
Kitty breaks away from Tinam and leaves the screen. Tinam watches her leave while holding the evidence in his hands. Subsequently he continues driving. Then we see Kitty, lying alone on her sofa. In another shot we see Tinam thoughtfully driving around.
Kitty stops the car on the street and turns to Tinam who is next to her.
Kitty: I'll talk to Sister Cindy! If anything happens, get out fast!
Tinam: She's only a woman!
Kitty: How can you help me? Show me how you handle a gun!
Tinam shortly pulls out his gun. Suddenly, he gets nervous and throws up.
Kitty watches sister Cindy's audio message on the screen.
Sister Cindy: Kitty, I'll be dead by the time you watch this video! But don't feel sad for me! Every killer ends up like this! I'm very happy that you've found your true love! Don't get revenge for me, you can't beat Princess! Because you've fallen in love and Princess loves no one! Here are some photos for you, leave here as quickly as you can!
Tinam's colleague enters through the door and looks at Tinam who is lying on the couch.
Colleague: You didn't look the door again!
Tinam: It doesn't matter whether I lock the door or not!
Colleague: Can't you get up? That girl's mysterious! She can appear and disappear at any time! She killed lots of people! If you carry on like this, you'll be next!
Tinam: Do you think I'm happy without her?
Colleague: I think you looke like shit!
Tinam: I'd rather be killed by her! At least, I'd be happier!
Colleague: Stop it! You're nuts! Let's eat first! I brought some chicken!
Tinam: Dickhead, are you my friend? You have to help me!
Colleague: They've taken your gun so you're on holyday! It'll be very dangerous!
Tinam: I don't care about the gun, I can't even holt it!
Tinam gets up from the couch.
Colleague: Where are you going?
Tinam: I want to get an informer! I want to know where Kitty is!
