Jesu li vam već dosadili ovi Hollywoodski svjetlucavi vampiri koji su polučili cjeli niz sličnih ispljuvaka? Naravno da jesu, pa vam mi stoga donosimo dobre stare krvožedne vampire u brutalnom i krvavom Hongkongoškom akcijskom hororcu Rigor Mortis redatelja debitanta Juno Mak. Juno je inače pop pjevač koji je postao glumac, a sada se eto odlučio okušati i u redateljskim vodama. Rigor Mortis je radnjom smješten u jeziv i stambeni toranj u Hong Kongu čiji stanari uskoro otkriju kako je toranj zapravo ulaz u svijet mrtvih, duhova, zombija i krvožednih vampira, a pomoći im jedino može bivši lovac na vampire koji je baš slučajno došao u taj toranj kako bi tamo okončao svoj depresivni život. U glavnoj ulozi Siu-hou Chin koji se je proslavio ulogom u kultnom Azijskom uratku Mr. Vampire iz 1985., a tu su još Kara Hui, Richard Ng, Hee Ching Paw te Anthony Chan. Budžet filma iznosi 15 milijuna HK$, odnosno malo manje od 2 milijuna Američkih$. Na žalost još nije poznato kada će film biti prikazan i gdje, pa ćemo Vas o tome obavijestiti naknadno.
In this eerie and chilling, contemporary, action/special effects laden homage to the classic Chinese vampire movies of the 1980’s, writer-director-producer, Juno Mak makes his feature directorial debut. Co-produced by J-Horror icon Takashi Shimizu, and reuniting some of the original cast members of the classic Mr. Vampire series, RIGOR MORTIS is set in a creepy and moody Hong Kong public housing tower whose occupants we soon discover, run the gamut from the living to the dead, to the undead, along with ghosts, vampires and zombies.
Reuniting some of the original cast members of the classic Mr. Vampire series, 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 who is also 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 which is allegedly a 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 is far from normal. Despite his lack of belief in superstition, Siu-ho is soon thrust into the battle of his life as vicious vampires having a lot of unsettled business begin to rise from the dead…
