All Critics (20) | Top Critics (8)

All the clichés of Asian horror are rolled out - with tongue ever-so-slightly in cheek - for this bracing, bonkers slice of undead antics.

With visuals this gruesome and flashy, who needs seamless storytelling?

Even if Mak's drawn-out special effects seem like overkill, the bottom line is that he spins a good campfire yarn.

Director Juno Mak might have pulled off this potpourri if it weren't for a cop-out ending.

Top Critic

A discolored, comparatively humorless, slow-build horror movie whose connection to the hopping-vampire craze would seem tenuous if it weren't continually asserting it.

Audience Reviews for Rigor Mortis

This film is a really fun and stylish blend of horror and martial arts, and something that definitely lived up to the trailer and accompanying images. Great stuff. Recommended.

As chinese as horror can get, Rigor Mortis ussually chooses style over substance, not wanting to really get into the characters stories. However, what it doenst do right isnt compared to the amount of amazing visual flare, and while it may not be terribly scary, it at least has some signifcant shock value and cultural stand outs that chinese film lovers will really apreciatte.

Absolutely beautiful visuals. Even appalling violence is somehow also graceful and lovely. Kind of a dudefest, but the characters themselves are different enough that I minded less than I would've otherwise. Trigger warning: rape.
