Rigor Mortis

Rigor Mortis

Directed by Juno Mak

Once a successful actor, Chin Siu-Ho becomes suicidal when his career slows down and his wife leaves him. Unable to afford his former lifestyle, Chin moves into a dilapidated tenement building where a host of supernatural entities and spiritualists populate the halls, sparking a series of strange events. Juno Mak’s Hong Kong horror pays tribute to the Chinese horror series MR. VAMPIRE, featuring many of the same cast members. Mixing influences from his own cinematic culture as well as drawing from the Japanese and Korean horror boom of the 90s and 00s, Mak creates an engaging slow burn horror with a deliciously dark aesthetic. Contains strong language, sexual scenes, violence and gore.

Supernatural chaos erupts in an abandoned apartment block when a washed up movie star arrives.

Cast: Anthony Chan, Yau Siu-Ho, Fat Chung

A spiritual sequel to Mr Vampire but much darker I would recommend it to anyone interested in zombies, Taoist magic, and Chinese horror.

Always love Hong Kong old vampire movies. And it is really excited to see the innovation in this genre. Although it is really different from the old vampire movies I had seen before, it is a really fantastic mix of different horror elements yet have its uniqueness. And the background music is sadly beautiful

Held my interest throughout but the CGI was sorta poopy. Some genuinely creepy scenes and good acting. This would've been a 4 if the last two minutes didn't relegate this to a Chinese supernatural version of 'Jacob's Ladder'.
