    Synopsis


    Rigor Mortis
    A weary ex-vampire hunter moves into a run-down housing estate, and contends with a ghoulish collection of bloodsuckers, ghosts, and zombies in this stylist tribute to the popular "Geung Si" horror films of the 1970s, '80s, and '90s. Once upon a time, Chin Siu-ho (Siu-Ho Chin) was a famous actor who slew vampires on the side. These days Chin's bank account is empty, and his family won't talk to him. Deeply despondent, he checks into room 2442 of a dilapidated tower block with the full intention of taking his own life. Chin's suicidal ambitions are quickly thwarted, however, when he crosses paths with his eccentric new neighbors, which include a powerful Taoist exorcist (Anthony Chan), a deeply-troubled housewife (Kara Hui) and an old lady (Paw Hee-ching) with a morbid flair for interior design. It doesn't take Chin long to realize that something terrible is unfolding before his frightened eyes, and as the dead begin to rise, the battle against the forces of darkness commences. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      An Original movie!

      This movie has incredible cinematography and great "natural-looking" (not the SyFy computer generated kind) special effects. You are constantly on the edge of your seat. There are no real "jump" attack surprises. It is the use of the camera that builds anticipation and suspense. The movie combines so many sub-genres of horror (and even science fiction for that matter) into a film about the penultimate question in our lives...what happens when we die. There are ghosts and a zombie/vampire interacting with regular people in a supernatural, eerie apartment buidling filled with very peculiar people. The action scenes are mixed with amazing martial arts stunts. The spoken story line is very small so you have to stay engaged to follow along. Simultaneously, there is a second plot running parallel to the main plot about suicide. It definitely makes you think about life after death and what happens at that moment when life ends. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good action/old school horror/science fiction/supernatural movie. The only reason that I did not give it 5 stars is that it is in all English subtitles (unless you can speak Cantonese).

      This is a good movie... good action... good acting... visually pleasing... but somewhere along the line it confused me... especially at the end of the movie. I've only watched it once. I may have to watch it again and see if I can follow it better. Overall it is a good movie.

      I'm usually a big fan of foreign horror films They usually scare me, this one not so much. It could have been better. It started out good but got bad fast and was laughable. Goes it will go on the really bad film shelf. Next time I wait until it lands in the bargain bin.

      Horror/Martial Arts Throwback

      This movie lends itself to early horror/martial arts films. It is a conglomerate of horror genres (ghosts, vampires, etc.). Not particularly scary, but this movie goes beyond Western superficial horror. Excellent cinematography.

      Good action but a bit all over the place. You really have to pay attention to what is going on to try and follow the story. It explains most things slowly. It also counts on the viewer have knowledge of other customs.

      Predictable from the beginning. The effects however were good. I would not consider this a horror movie and although the movie was somewhat entertaining I would only recommend this if you have nothing else to watch.

      An action ghost saga for the fans of the genre? Wait is there a genre like this? Not till now I guess. The movie was good. Fighting scenes were well choreographed. Fun movie to watch.
