A couple of new posters from the American Film Market here for you. The first is the totally bonkers posters for the Juno Mak’s totally nuts looking vampire horror, Rigor Mortis. The second poster is the first to be released for underwater tense horror flick, Pressure.

Rigor Mortis:

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.

Synopsis:

RIGOR MORTIS stars action movie veteran Chin Siu-ho as a former vampire hunting actor who now finds himself reaching the end of the line as a washed-up star, 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, an allegedly 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 are far from normal. Despite his lack of belief in superstition, Siu-ho is soon thrust into the battle of his life as vicious vampires with unsettled business begin to rise from the dead…

Pressure:

The film was directed by Ron Scalpello from a screenplay by Alan McKenna and Paul Staheli. It stars Danny Huston (X-Men: Origins: Wolverine), Matthew Goode (Stoker), and Alan McKenna (7 Lives).

Synopsis:

Beneath the most hostile ocean on Earth and beyond the extremes of human endurance, four deep sea divers are trapped. As they face their deepest fears, hold your breath, control your fear, and experience where terror runs deep!

A heart-stopping underwater adventure. A taut claustrophobic suspense movie.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
