Rigor Mortis, an eerie, chilling homage to the classic Chinese vampire movies of the 1980s, is set to open in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, Seattle, Honolulu, and Toronto on June 6th. Co-produced by J-Horror icon Takashi Shimizu, the film marks the directorial debut of Hong Kong film maverick Juno Mak and reunites some of the original cast members of the classic Mr. Vampire series.

Synopsis: A washed-up actor, desperate and suicidal, moves into a haunted Hong Kong apartment housing tower where supernatural creatures, ghost hunters, taoist exorcists, and the souls of the undead walk among his neighbors.

I'm planning to attend a press screening in New York at the end of may and expect to have a review up on or before the release date, so be sure to check back at AsianCineFest.
