The Strange House :- Watch The Strange House on YoutubeonFire, Hong Kong horror-film director Danny Pang’s home’s walls are covered with posters featuring ghouls. And the room hosting his Beijing news conference on July 21 to promote his new thriller, The Strange House, was designed like a horror-flick set with gloomy lighting and spooky sounds. It began with several women in red dresses moving over the stage like floating spirits. The “king of Hong Kong horror” has returned to the spotlight since the film hit mainland theaters on July 24. It’s his first film shot on the mainland and with big-name mainland actors. It’s showing on 3-D and 4K DMAX screens on the mainland. The movie premiered a day before in Malaysia and later will head to overseas destinations, including Thailand, Japan, South Korea and Russia, executive producer Yuan Bingtao says. “My narrative style relies more on imagery than dialogue,” Pang tells China Daily. “That gives them global appeal beyond language and culture.” The plot centers on a girl who sees ghostly figures and leads to a discovery buried under an old house. “A thriller director should be like a naughty child … playing tricks … and scaring people by surprise,” he says. “Fear stems from reality. Horror scenes featuring everyday things are the best.” Lead actress Xu Jiao, who plays the girl who sees visions, says she became frightened offset during shooting. “Most of the scenes were shot at night. I had to walk down a dark, narrow alley between the shooting location and my hotel. The four-minute walk was so scary,” she says.
