Stunningly Beautiful Trailer For Chinese Vampire Film ‘Rigor Mortis’

3-rigor-mortis

The Chinese vampire film Rigor Mortis in which writer-director-producer Juno Mak makes his feature directorial debut, has just released a stunningly beautiful trailer. This thing is gorgeous – a total must see.

Co-produced by J-Horror master Takashi Shimizu (The Grudge), and reuniting some of the original cast members of the classic Mr. Vampire series, Rigor Mortis is set in a creepy and moody Hong Kong public housing tower whose occupants, we soon discover, run the gamut from the living to the dead to the undead, along with ghosts, vampires, and zombies.

“Rigor Mortis stars action movie veteran Chin Siu-ho (Siu-ho) as a former vampire hunting actor who now finds himself reaching the end of the line as a washed-up star, separated from his wife and alienated from his son. Down on his luck and with barely a dollar to his name, he checks into Room 2442 in the housing estate, an allegedly haunted flat. His aim is to end his misery by doing himself in, but instead Siu-ho is interrupted by some of the other “occupants” of the building including a Taoist master-exorcist (Anthony Chan), a traumatized housewife with a tragic past (Kara Hui), as well as a seemingly benign elderly woman (Paw Hee-ching) who has an empty coffin conspicuously hanging in the middle of her apartment. Soon it becomes apparent to Siu-ho that the people around him and the situation are far from normal. Despite his lack of belief in superstition, Siu-ho is soon thrust into the battle of his life as vicious vampires with unsettled business begin to rise from the dead…

    Gorgeous. According to IMDB this is Mak’s first work as a director. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1474034/

    That would make this even more stunning. A real visual feast for a first-timer. I stopped watching halfway through because it’s so impressive that I don’t want anything else to be spoiled.

Just when I thought that vampire movies were done and cooked and lost in the mist of bullshit. this movie comes along and opens up a can of whoop ass :) I’m so stoked. it looks so damn different and the vampires look scary as fuck like they should be, not some glittery models.
