Mad Fate Trailer

“Red eyes are an ominous sign. It’s when you will kill.” Illume Films has revealed an official trailer for an indie Hong Kong mystery thriller film titled Mad Fate, from filmmaker Soi Cheang. This first premiered at the 2023 Berlin Film Festival earlier this year, and also played at the Hong Kong Film Festival in March. It’s now set to open in the US this August. The film stars Gordon Lam as a fortune-teller who crosses paths with a young man with a strong desire to commit murder and tries to change the latter’s destiny in various ways. It’s a stylish genre film with a few twists & turns. Also starring Lokman Yeung, Berg Ng, Ng Wing Sze, and Peter Chan.

Still seems like it might be crazy enough to watch? // Continue Reading ›
