Witness the haunting trailer for Chinese ghost story Phantom of the Theatre

Talk about an entrance. I knew absolutely nothing about the Chinese ghost story PHANTOM OF THE THEATRE before the trailer dropped this morning, but now I need to know everything. The film, from the team that made THE HOUSE THAT NEVER DIES, looks like a resurrection of the creepy Asian horror films that rocked the States back in the early 2000's. Slick, beautiful, creepy, and sometimes just a little silly, it's a perfectly intriguing throwback film. Check out the trailer below!

Set in 1930's Shanghai, PHANTOM OF THE THEATRE is about:

A haunted theatre, filled with the vengeful spirits of a tragically-trapped performance troupe murdered in a fire 13 years ago, waits for the once-grand palatial playhouse to re-open with a new show...and bring new victims.

PHANTOM OF THE THEATRE comes from director Raymond Yip (ICEMAN, THE WARLORDS) and stars Ruby Lin, Tony Yang, Simon Yam, and Huang Lei. The film will hit theaters on May 6th.
