Review: Rigor Mortis (2013) (August 2015)

Hot on the remake/reboot trend, comes Rigor Mortis (2013). It's a loose retelling of the classic, Mr Vampire (1985) - See, HERE. This is a Cantonese/Hong Kong film set in an old apartment building. It is room 2445 where a depressed actor (Chin Siu Ho) goes to hang himself after being out the lime light! He is saved by a chain-smoking priest (Anthony "Friend" Chan) as this building is Haunted and the ghosts of the past out out in full forces of darkness.
There are familiar faces from Mr Vampire that return in this bleak, action horror. The usual Taoist trickery is all there with magic spells and kung fu. There are ghosts - right out of Ju-On: The Grudge (2002) as this was produced by Takashi Shimizu, himself.

Review: Things That Go Bump in the Night!! (2015) (August 2015)

This is a mini horror movie by Luna Wolf and Missy P. It premiered last night on line and is a found footage short. The Evil Twins dare one another to play the old urban legend "Bloody Mary" in a hotel room whilst away from home. Naturally, things take a turn for the worst in a slow build up of false scares and girls giggling on the bed. Never one to turn down a challenge, miss Wolf takes the urban legend challenge thus consequences will happen like in all horror movies!
It was Luna that edited Things that go Bump.. and I enjoyed the build up and the scare! The short runs just over 8 minutes and isn't dragged out! It's all good fun with the Evil Twins. Best to watch with the lights turned out - well done, ladies!! Please, visit: http://www.malum-gemini.com/.
