This one opened in China yesterday (January 24th), but since it hasn’t opened in the rest of the world yet, I think I’m good to cover it. Right? At any rate, I’m always down for a badass Chinese horror flick, and Zhou Yaowu’s genre-centric endeavor “Harpoon” (aka “Jing Hun You Xi”) looks to be a lot of fun. And while I generally don’t go for the whole torture porn thing, I am curious to see how this one plays out. You might say that I’m biased, but I like to think that I’m just selective. Yeah, selective. I like the way that sounds. But, I digress.
Finding information about this particular title is tough, so you’ll just have to go into this one blind. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. My guess: Someone is going to get killed, and there’s going to be a lot of blood involved. At the end of the proverbial day, isn’t that all we’re really looking for in a torture horror flick? Don’t lie. “Harpoon”, which stars Hu Bing, Monica Mok, Li Lingyu, Wang Shuangbao, Bo Luzhi, Zhao Ming, and Li Haoxuan. When you’re ready, check out the trailer embedded below. And if you live in China, stop by your local theater and check it out. As long as you have the stomach for it, that is.
