The 2000′s: A Vital Decade in Horror Cinema

3 November 2012 10:48 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Many film websites published “decade’s best horror films” lists in late 2009/early 2010. While these lists collectively provided a rough snapshot of the genre’s ups and downs during that time, with more time to reflect, it becomes increasingly clear what an important period the 2000’s were for the horror genre on a global scale.

Not only did this decade easily and obviously eclipse the comparatively arid 1990’s in both volume of production and overall quality, the 2000’s can also be looked at as a crucial one for horror cinema despite the justified outrage about the American film industry’s widespread strip-mining of classics and foreign films for remakes/re-boots and its saturation of the market with teen-friendly PG-13 rated horror films.

While by no means as groundbreaking as the 1970’s or as sentimentally regarded as the 1980’s, the 2000’s will be recalled as the decade that, despite well-founded criticisms »

Fairy Tale Killer (2012) Movie Review

12 August 2012 7:32 PM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Danny Pang, still best known as one half of the brotherly directorial duo responsible for the 2002 hit “The Eye”, takes another shot at recapturing his past form with “Fairy Tale Killer”, which as its title suggests follows the police hunt for a murderer who bases his methods around children’s fables. As with any Pang production, the film is a glossy affair with slick visuals, and this time has a couple of big headlining stars in Lau Ching Wan (“Life Without Principle”) and Wang Baoqiang (“Mr. Tree”), with support from the likes of Elanne Kwong (“Love Lifting”), Elena Kong (“A Simple Life”), Joey Meng (“All About Love”), and ultra prolific Hong Kong character actor Lam Suet (“The Great Magician”). The film opens with a strange, stammering young man with white face makeup called Ng (Wang Baoqiang) turning up at the police station of Inspector Wong (Lau Ching Wan) and confessing to a murder. »

Review: Fairy Tale Killer is Another Pang Nightmare

10 May 2012 1:26 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

When discussing the careers of the Pang Brothers, it doesn't take long before you start repeating yourself. After a couple of promising Thai thrillers, Danny and his twin brother Oxide scored a massive international hit with 2002's The Eye - and, whether working together or separately, have been struggling to match that success ever since. They have come close on occasion. I think there's a fair amount to appreciate in 2006's re-teaming with Oxide's off-screen partner Lee Sinje, Re-Cycle, and their Bangkok-based cop thriller The Detective, starring Aaron Kwok, also has plenty going for it. Outside of these few entries, however, the brothers' prolific back catalogue is largely devoid of pedigree. Despite all this, I still find myself giving the Pangs the benefit of the doubt, »

Trailer, First Art From Asian 'Fairy Tale Killer'

4 April 2012 10:38 AM, PDT | bloody-disgusting.com | See recent Bloody-Disgusting.com news »

Inside we've added the official poster and international trailer for The Eye co-director Danny Pang's Fairy Tale Killer. "Jun confesses five murders at police station, but he fails to illustrate the details. The Police believe Jun is mentally deranged as his claims of murder just dont match the facts. Soon after, a cold-blooded murder unveils a series of mysterious deaths in the district where Detective Han (Ching Wan Lau) stations resides. Each of the victims is executed by different but equally brutal ways. Instinct tells him Jun is the suspense after he goes over all recent statements. But when his team goes and searches Jun's apartment, they find nothing except a pile of old fairy tale books." Both films were being sold at Efm. »

First Official Trailer for Director Danny Pang’s Fairy Tale Killer

2 April 2012 9:58 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

What happens when violent crimes start to resemble fairy tales? You put a seasoned cop in charge of the investigations. I first read about director Danny Pang’s upcoming thriller “Fairy Tale Killer” (aka “Perfect Fairy Tale”) way back in 2010, though everything has been strangely quiet since then. Until now, that is. Below you’ll find the first creepy trailer for the flick, as well as a fairly nifty poster to help promote the flick’s May release date. Pang usually does good work — “The Eye 10″ and the remake of “Bangkok Dangerous” being the clear exceptions to that statement — so it will be interesting to see how this visionary filmmaker tackles a subject that seems to be quite popular right now. Here’s hoping he does something cool with it. The trailer for “Fairy Tale Killer”, which stars Ching Wan Lau, resides below. It’s worth a look, I think »

Trailer for Lau Ching Wan's New Film Fairy Tale Killer

31 March 2012 5:03 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Lau Ching Wan, one of the best actors working in Hong Kong today, is back with the new film Fairy Tale Killer. The film is directed by Danny Pang, who is most famous for the films in which he collaborated with his older twin Oxide Pang, in particular the classic 2002 horror film The Eye. While many of the films from the Pang brothers over the years were disappointing, Fairy Tale Killer may fare better thanks to a strong cast including Lau and award-winning co-star Wang Bao Qiang (Blind Shaft, Assembly, A World Without Thieves), as well as a screenplay from Szeto Kam Yuen who wrote the scripts for some of the best Milkyway Image productions (Exiled, A Hero Never Dies, Expect The Unexpected, The Longest »

Re-cycle: DVD review

21 March 2012 12:21 PM, PDT | 24framespersecond.net | See recent 24FramesPerSecond news »

Director: The Pang Brothers. Review: Adam Wing. Few filmmakers thrill and frustrate the way The Pang Brothers do. Early collaborations – Bangkok Dangerous and The Eye in particular – were smash hits the world over. Their solo outings have been something of a mixed bag, with Oxide fairing slightly better than Danny. ‘Abnormal Beauty,’ ‘Diary’ and ‘The Detective’ are certainly worth a look, but recent offerings have definitely been more miss than hit. ‘Storm Warriors’ – a sequel to smash hit movie ‘The Storm Riders’ – was a huge disappointment, and over the last few years we have had to endure Hollywood misfire ‘The Messengers,’ as well as 3D infused (should that read infuriating?) features ‘The Childs Eye’ and ‘Sleepwalker.’ Re-cycle was released in 2006, sandwiched between ‘The Eye 2’ and their Hollywood debut; it’s also arguably their greatest achievement. Angelica Lee (married to Oxide and starring in the second of three collaborations with the siblings) is Ting-yin, »

Cine du Monde bring Pang brothers Recycle to the UK

15 March 2012 2:03 PM, PDT | 24framespersecond.net | See recent 24FramesPerSecond news »

The Pang Brothers are probably best know as the creators of ‘The Eye’ and ‘Bangkok Dangerous’ but one of their best and more off the wall films in the last couple of years definitely has to be horror thriller Re-Cycle, and you’ll finally be able to get hold of it in the UK next month! Left of centre label Cine du Monde are doing the business on the release front, and you can pick it up on DVD (but alas not on Blu-ray, which is a shame because it has some stunning visuals) from April 23. Synopsis: Ting-yin, a popular author who is stuck with her writing and keeps discarding her ideas. She starts to sense her apartment being haunted. When she steps out of her building, she arrives in a mysterious world where she comes across characters she has created and abandoned. An old man tells her that she »

Sleepwalker (2011) Movie Review

9 January 2012 8:36 AM, PST | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

“Sleepwalker” is the latest solo effort from Oxide Pang, one half of the twin brother directorial duo still best known for their hit 2002 ghost story “The Eye”. The film sees him reteaming with that film’s leading lady, his wife Angelica Lee, this time in a plot dealing with kidnapped children and the always creepy subject of sleepwalking. The film also stars Charlie Young, working for the director again after the ill-advised “Bangkok Dangerous” remake in 2008, along with Huo Siyan (“My Name is Fame”) and Li Zonghan (“Reign of Assassins”), plus Hong Kong character actor favourite Kent Cheng (who memorably starred in a long string of 1980s and 90s classics such as “Run and Kill”, “Dr Lamb”, “Sex and Zen”, and countless others). Angelica Lee plays clothes maker Ziyi, an unfortunate woman plagued by a disturbing recurring dream about a forest where she suspects a body is buried, which finds »
