Jiro Wang to Showcase Hardcore Horror in 3D Film “Bloody Doll”

Taiwanese actor Jiro Wang (汪東城) will be appearing in mainland China’s first 3D horror film, Bloody Doll <怨靈人偶>, which is slated for release this summer. Although Jiro previously starred in another horror film, The Purple House <紫宅>, he revealed that the horror in Bloody Doll is at a completely different level, calling it comparable to that of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre series.

Bloody Doll stars Jiro as Gao Yifeng, a bank employee who attends a reunion gathering for his university. There, he meets his old flame, Lin Xi (mainland Chinese actress Zhou Qiqi 周奇奇). The two had been a golden couple, the envy of every student at their university. However, reality broke them apart, and Lin Xi ended up marrying a rich young man after graduation. At the reunion, Yifeng and Lin Xi accidentally get locked in a secret chamber, unleashing a string of supernatural and frightening consequences.

Great care was put into the special effects, makeup, and set arrangement in order to bring forth the highest degree of visual, auditory, and psychological horror. Because they wanted to infuse Bloody Doll with Japanese horror elements, the producers invited a Japanese team to work on the film, which is a first-time occurrence for a mainland Chinese movie. The mix of a complicated storyline, unexpected narrative technique, and interlinking murder case is reminiscent of the suspenseful style of Japanese mystery writer Keigo Higashino (東野 圭吾).

Although Jiro is no stranger to horror, he revealed that he was often startled by the props of bloody corpses on set. He shared that, for the scene where he and Qiqi discover the secret chamber and the corpse inside, he decided not to look at the corpse beforehand, so he would be able to capture a more genuine feeling of fright.

“At the time, we were so frightened that our legs went limp,” he said. “As for what the corpse looked like, we can’t reveal that right now. I really can’t imagine what effect the corpse will have in 3D. I hope that timid movie fans will be mentally prepared.”

      I hope it’s not a ghost story. Make it a murder case. A ‘ghost’ movie made in China usually ends up being something else because of China’s ‘no ghost’ broadcasting policy.

      I have watch 2 Mainland China ghost/supernatural movies that ended up being ‘all in the mind of the patient’. The first time, it’s interesting. The second time, it’s disappointing. It’s the exact same resolution in both movies.

      if Bloody Doll can be compared to the Texas Chainsaw Massacre series, then i’d definitely give this one a go
