Juno Mak Hong Kong, 2013

OFF_FRAME's rating of the film Rigor Mortis

An audio-visual inferno that gave me nightmares the first night after watching it. Auntie Mui and Anthony Chan are the stand-outs here with one scene between Mui and her undead husband full of nuance and richly human. Curiously it is the lead that is the hardest to develop any kind of empathy for which when combined with the clichéd ending really lets the film down. Haunting but falls a little short. 3 stars
