Fairy Tale Killer (追凶, Pupil in Chinese) is a 2012 Hong Kong horror film directed by Danny Pang Phat.[3] The film was released on 11 May 2012 and stars Sean Lau, Wang Baoqiang, and Elanne Kong.[4][5] The Fairy Tale Killer follows police detective Wong Wai-han as he investigates a series of brutal murders.[6]

Plot[edit]

When a bloodied and incoherent Wu Zaijun (Wang Baoqiang) confesses to five murders that have not occurred, the police assume that he's mentally unstable and ignore his claims. Police detective Wong Wai-han (Sean Lau) is investigating a series of gruesome murders, but soon discovers that all is not as it seems and that not only are the murders connected, but that Jun is tied to them in some way.
