Hier haben sie ihre letz­te Zuflucht gefun­den. Doch die Mas­se der ver­blie­be­nen Mensch­heit fris­tet im hin­te­ren Teil des Zuges ein Leben in ewi­ger Dun­kel­heit, wäh­rend vor­ne die weni­gen rei­chen Pas­sa­gie­re im Luxus schwel­gen.

In Fear

Trailer

Story

In Jere­my Lovering’s chil­ling debut, a young cou­ple fights to sur­vi­ve one night-tur­ned-night­ma­re. Dri­ving to a music fes­ti­val, Tom and Lucy have plans to stay at a coun­try­si­de hotel. But with hotel signs lea­ding them in cir­cles and darkness fal­ling, they soon beco­me lost in a maze of coun­try roads…and the tar­get of an unk­nown tormen­tor.

Remi­nis­cent of vin­ta­ge psy­cho­lo­gi­cal thril­lers and bols­te­red by new­co­mers Iain De Cae­s­te­cker and Ali­ce Eng­lert in its main roles, IN FEAR plays out in real time and hin­ges on a claus­tro­pho­bic, unrelen­ting­ly ten­se visual sty­le. Loo­king to shed pre­ten­se and genui­nely sca­re his actors, Lover­ing with­held the script and often con­cea­led what was about to hap­pen to the cha­rac­ters. Add a dark forest, and the fear beca­me real.

Though pro­pel­led by vis­ce­ral thrills, the film trans­cends gen­re and offers a stu­dy in fear its­elf, crea­ting a cere­b­ral fable in which fear—of the dark, of the unk­nown, of ourselves—governs our natu­re, com­pels our choices, and may well seal Tom and Lucy’s fate. — filmguide.sundance.org

Story

The zom­bies are stal­king again. Howe­ver, on this occa­si­on huma­ni­ty has mana­ged to escape the attack thanks to a pro­te­in that coun­ter­acts the effects and stops some from turning defi­ni­tive­ly into non-dead. With the epi­de­mic under con­trol, ever­yo­ne is living in appa­rent har­mony… until the sup­ply of the mira­cle poti­on starts to beco­me scar­ce. Kate, who works at a rese­ar­ch cen­ter, and her boy­fri­end Alex, a retur­ned, try to save them­sel­ves. A new twist on zom­bie movies in a film with a touch of road movie. — sitgesfilmfestival.com

Rigor Mortis

Trailer

Story

In this eerie and chil­ling, con­tem­pora­ry, action/special effects laden homa­ge to the clas­sic Chi­ne­se vam­pi­re movies of the 1980’s, wri­ter-direc­tor-pro­du­cer, Juno Mak makes his fea­ture direc­to­ri­al debut. Co-pro­du­ced by J-Hor­ror icon Taka­shi Shi­mi­zu, and reu­nit­ing some of the ori­gi­nal cast mem­bers of the clas­sic Mr. Vam­pi­re series, RIGOR MORTIS is set in a cree­py and moo­dy Hong Kong public hou­sing tower who­se occup­ants we soon dis­co­ver, run the gamut from the living to the dead, to the undead, along with ghosts, vam­pi­res and zom­bies.
Reu­nit­ing some of the ori­gi­nal cast mem­bers of the clas­sic Mr. Vam­pi­re series, RIGOR MORTIS stars action movie vete­r­an Chin Siu-ho (Siu-ho) as a for­mer vam­pi­re hun­ting actor who now finds him­self reaching the end of the line as a was­hed-up star who is also sepa­ra­ted from his wife and alie­na­ted from his son. Down on his luck and with bare­ly a dol­lar to his name, he checks into room 2442 in the hou­sing esta­te which is alle­gedly a haun­ted flat. His aim is to end his mise­ry by doing him­self in, but ins­tead Siu-ho is inter­rup­ted by some of the other “occup­ants” of the buil­ding inclu­ding a Tao­ist mas­ter-exor­cist (Ant­hony Chan), a trau­ma­ti­zed hou­se­wi­fe with a tra­gic past (Kara Hui), as well as a see­mingly beni­gn elder­ly woman (Paw Hee-ching) who has an empty coffin con­spi­cuous­ly han­ging in the midd­le of her apart­ment.

 

Soon it beco­mes appa­rent to Siu-ho that the peop­le around him, and the situa­ti­on is far from nor­mal. Des­pi­te his lack of belief in super­sti­ti­on, Siu-ho is soon thrust into the batt­le of his life as vicious vam­pi­res having a lot of unsett­led busi­ness begin to rise from the dead… — fantasyfilmfest.com
