Soi Cheang has been working with Digital Video before making his first 35-mm feature with Diamond Hill, a film about incest and with some horror elements as he describes. Like Chow, he was also used to production sets since he’s been assistant directors for Ringo Lam, Andrew Lau and Wilson Yip. His second 35-mm film Horror Hotline… Big Head Monster, supposedly a real scary movie, is far away from any HK comedy-plus-horror package films. For this second experience as director he cast not less than the current biggest names in HK, e.g. Francis Ng, Josie Ho, Sam Lee, directors Wilson Yip & Alan Mak and scriptwriter Roy Szeto. —hkcinemagic.com
