Product Description

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.

Help me answers these questions I have and understand. There are some spoilers in my review.

I watched this movie because I loved Chinese Vampire movies when I was a little kid, and was super sad when they stopped making them. Now after so many years have passed, they decided to make a NEW Chinese Vampire movie. I was pretty excited getting ready to watch this movie. But, it didn't turn out exactly how I imagined it to be.

Okay, first things first, I like the name of the movie: Rigor Mortis. I had no idea what that meant until I Google it. I thought this was an excellent name for the movie. Rigor Mortis means that dead bodies goes through stiffness and the limbs become hard to move. And, if you know anything about Chinese Vampire, you know that they do not walk or run. All they do is hop and their arms are extended straight forward and stiff. Therefore, this is Rigoar Mortis effect is the perfect name for this Chinese Vampire flick.

I really enjoyed all the cast members' characters, they really played their parts well and made me believed their characters. The story made the casts member really shine in their parts.

The CGI was done very, well. This was probably the best thing to go watch this movie for. The great details, they put into making everything looked great to watch. However, the music I thought could had been better to fit the scenes being shown. It still worked out though.

Now for what I didn't like. I didn't really like the whole idea of mixing a hunted ghost apartment with the Chinese Vampire story. They made the story fit for the movie purpose, but I would rather just see one or the other. I really just wanted to watch this movie for the Chinese Vampire, and not be brother with the ghost aspects.

This was a great movie with very good special effects. The ending really blew me away, I did not expect that ending at all! Everyone did their part perfectly, with their nuances and subtle facial expressions, just a very good movie to rent and watch with a side order of popcorn and soda!

Rigor Mortis is a Honk Kong horror/action films produced by Takashi Shimizu, creator of the Grudge film series. Chin Siu-ho is a down and out former film star who moves into a dilapidated apartment complex which is home to sorcerers, vampire hunters, ghosts, and several oddball residents. Upon arriving, the depressed Chin attempts to hang himself. His body is possessed by pair of female spirits who are driven off by Mr. Lau, a former vampire hunter. Chin meets several of the other residents including Yang Feng and her albino son, Pak and Auntie Meiyi and her husband Uncle Tung.

Tung falls down the stairwell and dies, breaking his neck. His body is found by Gau, a sorcerer who practices black magic. Gau preserves Tungs body and offers to resurrect him for Aunt Meiyi. When the ritual fails to work, Gau employs darker means, using the blood of a virgin to bring Tung back to life as a Jiangshi, a type of Chinese vampire. Tung becomes even more powerful when he is possessed by the two female spirits as he rampages through the apartment. Chin and Mr. Lau have to team together to stop the deadly spirit.

Rigor Mortis is a fantastically stylish film with visuals that often dazzle and a stunning climax. Tungs transformation into the spirit possessed Jiangshi was a ghoulish site to behold. Pure horror fans might be put off by the martial arts battle between Tung and the magically enhanced Chin but it was a thrilling conclusion anyway. It’s the middle portion of the film that you have to ride out in between the dynamite opening and climax sequences.

There are a lot of scenes where characters sit around and talk without much happening. I learned more about cooking glutinous rice than I ever wanted. Rigor Mortis has interesting characters but they just don’t have much to do for long stretches of the film. If you’re looking for a different type of horror film with both action and eye-popping visuals, look no further than Rigor Mortis.

Someone far wiser than I said it best: the truest horror films are the ones that scare you with the strength of their ideas. They scare you with what they don’t show you as much as what they do, and it’s those fleeting imaginings that you assemble in your own mind’s eye that’ll keep you awake at night. Granted, there has to be some compelling vision at the heart of every good spook story because that’s precisely what gets the ball rolling inside your head. If RIGOR MORTIS is any indication, then you’re be screaming downhill at the speed of sound before all of it comes crashing to its chilling climax.

(NOTE: The following review will contain minor spoilers necessary solely for the discussion of plot and/or characters. If you’re the type of reader who prefers a review entirely spoiler-free, then I’d encourage you to skip down to the last three paragraphs for my final assessment. If, however, you’re accepting of a few modest hints at ‘things to come,’ then read on …)

From the product packaging: “A washed-up actor, desperate and suicidal, moves into a haunted apartment building where supernatural creatures, ghost hunters, zombies, and souls of the undead walk among his neighbors.”

And that’s quite probably all you need to know about RIGOR MORTIS. Does that sound interesting? Does that pique your curiosity? If so, then skip to the bottom. If not – or if you’re still uncertain – let me offer a few more words of inspiration.

Specifically, much ado has been made about how RIGOR MORTIS allies itself to some fairly classic Chinese vampires stories. Now if you’ve seen any AND you didn’t find them to be your cup of tea, let me assure you that for all of its posturing RIGOR MORTIS resembles very lightly many of those classic tales.
