The Hong Kong police are hunting a counterfeiting gang led by a mastermind code-named "Painter". In order to crack the true identity of him, the police recruits gang member Lee Man to unmask "Painter's" secret identity.
Lee Chung is a Prince of Joseon, but he has been taken hostage to the Qing Dynasty. He enjoys boozing, womanizing and gambling. He is also an excellent swordsman. His older brother Lee Young will succeed to the throne and brings Lee Chung to Joseon. He returns after more than 10 years. Soon, Lee Chung faces monsters that run rampant in the night.Written by
A swashbuckling period film with demons (hybrid between vampires n zombies). Crispr?
I love Korean films n Train to Busan is my fav zombie film.
Well, this is not as good as Train to Busan but nonetheless it is better than most zombie films produced left right n centre in Hollywood.
A prince returns home upon hearing that his elder brother has taken his own life.
While the king is busy with his concubines n the minister of military plotting to overthrow the dynasty, our prince has to face assassins, rebels, cries of poor peasants n hordes of demons (hybrid between zombies n vampires).
The demons r fast, terrifying n downright creepy.
The cinematography is top notch n the action scenes involving the sword fights r awesome. There is tons of decapitations, slicing of arms, legs, etc. but the gore is restrained.
The prison escape scene with the demons behind is pretty tensed n frightening.
