What’s that? You want more Chinese vampire movies? Good news for you then – because from the looks of it’s trailer, a new Chinese vampire flick called Rigor Mortis is about to be unleashed upon us! I’ll admit, I kind of slept on this one, even after getting press releases for it. Then I watched the trailer and was VERY impressed, hence why it’s high on my anticipation ladder.
Written, produced, and directed by Juno Mak – Rigor Mortis is a throwback and homage to 80’s Chinese vampire movies and it honestly looks visually stunning. It centers around a public housing tower in Hong Kong where the tenants include zombies, ghosts, and vampires. Trifecta! But enough of my yammering about the plot, check the teaser trailer below to see what I’m gushing about:
Reviews are going to start coming in for Rigor Mortis soon as it’s playing the Venice Film Festival and Toronto’s Midnight Madness. Stay tuned for US distribution news and screenings!
