This one is for all yawl out there who enjoy the macabre. It is for those of you who enjoy the blood and guts and such. (And boy is there) This film is an homage to the Chinese vampire movies made in the 1980’s. A decade where, most of us can agree, strange and wonderful things came from.
Here is the synopsis from the shows films website:
“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.
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, a traumatized housewife with a tragic past, as well as a seemingly benign elderly woman 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…”
If you are into this type of movie you will jump at the chance to watch it. It isn’t for the faint of heart. This probably wouldn’t be a good starter horror movie. No, this is more for the advanced genre watcher. There isn’t a set release date that I can find other than 2013. So keep an eye out for this one… if you dare. MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA… *coughs and clears throat* Too much?
