First time director Juno Mak makes his feature directorial debut in this eerie and chilling, action/special effects tribute to classic Chinese vampire flicks that come from the eighties in RIGOR MORTIS. The film reunits some of the original cast members from the MR VAMPIRE series. RIGOR MORTIS has a creepy setting taking place in a spooky Hong Kong public housing tower where we soon find that the occupants have some very dark secrets. Well Go USA gained the distribution rights in North America and we will see it in June. The official trailer is waiting for you below.
"RIGOR MORTIS stars action movie veteran Chin 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. 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…”
RIGOR MORTIS will be having a limited theatrical and digital release on June 6th.
