Prolific Hong Kong action director Dante Lam (The Beast Stalker, Unbeatable) returns with a dark, psychological action crime-thriller that pits regular collaborator Nick Cheung (The Beast Stalker, The Stool Pigeon) against Daniel Wu (Overheard) in a bleak, horrifying psychological and physical battle filled with strong imagery of Chinese supernatural horror. It’s like Infernal Affairs fused with Jacob’s Ladder or Angel Heart.
Official Selection of 2014 Berlin International Film Festival.
We're watching this film the same day it opens in Hong Kong theaters.
Synopsis: After a cop unknowingly revived a fatally injured robber by donating his blood, only for the robber to return and terrorize the public, the cop vows to bring down the robber and his gang while coping with his guilt and fragile psychological state.
“Action auteur Dante Lam delivers his darkest work to date with this ghoulish supernatural thriller” - Maggie Lee, Variety
“That Demon Within boasts an inexhaustible visual energy … an introspective thriller that blends kinetic action with Taoist superstition” - Fionnuala Halligan, Screen Daily
“A cagey mixture of action and horror, with a standout performance from Daniel Wu” - Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter
Past Meetups for Dante Lam's Films: Unbeatable (2013), The Viral Factor (2012), The Stool Pigeon (2011)
