The Hong Kong horror flick will slay Blu-ray in July. You can pre-order it now.
In an early announcement to retailers, Well Go USA is preparing 'Rigor Mortis' for Blu-ray on July 8.
A weary ex-vampire hunter moves into a run-down housing estate, and contends with a ghoulish collection of bloodsuckers, ghosts, and zombies in this stylist tribute to the popular "Geung Si" horror films of the 1970's, '80s, and '90s. Once upon a time, Chin Siu-ho (Siu-ho) was a famous actor who slew vampires on the side. These days Chin's bank account is empty, and his family won't talk to him. Deeply despondent, he checks into room 2442 of a dilapidated tower block with the full intention of taking his own life. Chin's suicidal ambitions are quickly thwarted, however, when he crosses paths with his eccentric new neighbors, which include a powerful Taoist exorcist (Anthony Chan), a deeply-troubled housewife (Kara Hui) and an old lady (Paw Hee-ching) with a morbid flair for interior design. It doesn't take Chin long to realize that something terrible is unfolding before his frightened eyes, and as the dead begin to rise, the battle against the forces of darkness begins.
Specs and supplements have not been detailed yet, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.98.
