RIGOR MORTIS is a Chinese vampire film marking the feature directorial debut of writer-director-producer Juno Mak and the first trailer is here in all of its bloody glory. In RIGOR MORTIS Mak is aiming to pay tribute to Chinese vampire films of the 80's, with his own insane looking style, and the result is absolutely gorgeous. You can check it out below!
The modern day horror film’s story revolves around action star Chin Siu-Ho, playing himself as a down and out actor/vampire hunter who moves into a rundown public housing flat only to discover that his apartment is haunted and he is not alone. In order to survive he must do battle with the forces of evil. The film is being produced by acclaimed Japanese director Takashi Shimizu along with Juno Mak and his Kudos Films.
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…”
