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

This is such an under-appreciated film: genuine chills, black humor and kung fu! I don't know why it hasn't gotten more buzz. Probably because of the dumb, completely irrelevant title. Just a bad English translation, I guess. Still...absolutely recommended!

WANTED TO GIVE IT A PERFECT 5 SO BADLY!!!!! Beautiful! Well acted! Great story! Scary vampire! LOVED IT...until the last TWO MINUTES. Literally, two minutes killed it. Definitely worth a watch anyhow...just pretend the ending didn't happen.
