An inspired homage to director Ricky Lau’s 1985 franchise launch of the Mr. Vampire series is what is in the offing on July 8. That’s street date that Well Go U.S.A. has selected for Blu-ray and DVD editions of actor-turned-filmmaker Juno Mak's Rigor Mortis (presented in Cantonese with English subtitles).
