The following is a non-exhaustive list of Category III films produced in Hong Kong. According to the Hong Kong motion picture rating system introduced in 1988, the restriction applicable to Category III films is thus defined: "No persons younger than 18 years of age are permitted to rent, purchase, or watch this film in the cinema." This applies to films produced in Hong Kong or elsewhere.
The Category III rating is applicable to films produced anywhere. The list below contains only Category III films produced in Hong Kong.
Films released before 1988 were rated retroactively when the rating system was introduced.
This period is generally considered as the one when most Category III Hong Kong exploitation films were produced.
