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.

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!

This is a tale of a man and the inhabitants of the building he moves to. Asian ghost stories are one of my favorite genres and this film delivers in high quality. At times it leaves you wondering what's real and what isn't. I've watched this several times and it still delivers.

A formerly successful martial arts actor, down on his luck, dirt-poor, estranged from his family and suicidal, moves into a cheap, shabby apartment in a creepy building that turns out to be haunted in Rigor Mortis, a film that effectively takes diverse genres and subgenres and melds them all together into a dark and brooding, weird and imaginative martial arts horror drama. The actor, Siu-Ho Chin (played by....Siu-Ho Chin, eerily enough) is now part of a loose 'extended family' of the building's residents, which includes normal people going about their admittedly bleak lives as well as ghosts, otherworldly entities, and a practioner of black magic, among others. The viewer comes into this strange, dark, purgatory-like world and encounters its inhabitants and mysteries at the same time as Siu-Ho, who eventually finds that things are even stranger than they at first appear, and finds himself heading toward a major culmination of weird events.

Rigor Mortis (original Cantonese title - "Geung Si") is intended partially as an homage to the history of Chinese horror movies, especially the Hong Kong horror movies of the 1980s. I'm a big fan of Asian horror (and Asian movies in general), but watching this and thinking back, I realize I've seen lots of Hong Kong (and other Chinese) horror from the 2000s, but virtually nothing further back than that (an oversight I'm planning on correcting). So I don't know have anything from the 80s to directly compare it to, but apparantly black magic wizards and vampires were plentiful in that era's HK film output. In the case of the latter, hopping vampires to be specific. Don't laugh. Apparently they were used in a number of horror comedies, but also in more straight horror movies.

This movie was a little more slow paced and drawn out than I thought, but all the actors are very talented Hong Kong veterans. The drama in this movie is top notch, even for a Hong Kong movie, which sometimes will overlook quality over substance. The dramatic scenes are very good and there are a few side characters than constantly threaten to steal the spotlight from the lead actor in this movie. The ending is a little strange and either you'll love it or hate it, but the movie overall was not bad and it is a homage to the Hong Kong Mr. Vampire movies of the 80's and 90's. If you're even vaguely familiar with the Mr. Vampire movies and "Hopping" vampires, you'll get a kick out of this movie. It does have elements of modern day Japanese horror in it, but not too many that are off putting by any means.

entertaining new genre. not quite a horror, not quite an action drama but its all three at once! very interesting to see this movie unfold. there are some scenes that kinda drag on but its crucial to pay attention to whats happening during those scenes to really understand the storyline. The story may be hard to follow but they all tie together at the end. The underlying theme of the movie is the struggles of letting go of your pain, specifically suffering from the lost of loved ones who have either died or simply left. there are unforgettable gore scenes and definitely takes a new approach to representing spirits and ghosts. Each character's lives have been carefully created as different representations of the same intensity of pain. this is definitely not a movie i would forget

This was my first Japanese Horror film and it was, ok. I have three stars for the graphics. The story was interesting as well as the take on vampires, but the actual telling of the story in the movie felt like the director didn't know how to tell it. It kind of felt like filler between the action and suspense scenes. I wouldn't recommend to a friend.

This movie looked great as a preview on another dvd I own. This movie blew me away! The sound and the picture are awesome! I chose to watch it with the english subtitles, but it also has the english dubbed version.

Just couldn't get into this so I will keep it so short. Ex-actor movies into a dilapidated building and sprits abound and so do neighbors. Vampires? I never made it that far....talk about tedious and directionless. I'm pretty sure I took a fast nap for 10 minutes!
