MIFF 2014 – A Perfect Midnight: Haunted Hong Kong

A Perfect Midnight: Haunted Hong Kong
http://miff.com.au/program/streams/a-perfect-midnight-haunted-hong-kong

A program of Hong Kong horror movies from the 1980s. I will probably go to see one or two of these, they were played quite a bit on SBS back in the day but it is always good to see them on the big screen. Irma Vep is also screening at the festival.

Encounters of the Spooky Kind

Rouge

I have seen Mr Vampire and Encounters of the Spooky Kind dozens of times, probably don’t need to watch them again. I would like to see Rouge and Rigor Mortis though.
