Behind-the-Scenes Look at Painted Skin

Yay! Another behind-the-scenes look at an upcoming movie! (Gee, I sure hope I don’t come across as “bitching” with this one…) Anyhoo. Although everything I had heard about Donnie Yen’s “Painted Skin” was painting it (ahem) as a horror movie, everything I’m actually seeing is pointing to a period martial arts movie. This behind-the-scenes footage from a Mainland Chinese entertainment show (yes, they actually exist, go figure) only confirms my belief that “Painted Skin” seems to be an action movie with a little dose of horror thrown in every now and then.

IMDB.com’s description keeps telling me it’s kinda a horror movie:

An action-thriller centered on a vampire-like woman who eats the skins and hearts of her lovers.

But the footage below seems to not be the case (via).

Starring Donnie Yen, Wei Zhao, Xun Zhou, Betty Sun, Kun Chen, and Yuwu Qi . Gordon Chan (“Fist of Legend”) directs.

    having seen it i wouldn’t call it a horror movie! it’s a chinese horror story from the old folk tales or a scary farytale yes but there is enough humor put into the film that it certainly doesn’t come across as a horror movie! it is however a very beautyful and lovely film and a very touching tale and i can only recomend it! i certainly can’t wait to see it again when it comes out in the UK.
