Because [livejournal.com profile] ockoala is a pusher extraordinaire, I checked out Painted Skin a Chinese horror/fantasy/period movie, starring Chen Kun, Zhou Xun and Zhao Wei.



PS is a story about a general who rescues a beautiful woman from Xiongnu tribesmen and, feeling sorry for her, brings her home. One problem - the woman in question is not human at all but a 1000-yr-old demon who wears the "painted skin" of the title - taking on the appearance of a beautiful woman in order to devour men's hearts to sustain itself. The demon falls for the general and wants to be with him and not have him as a snack, but there are a number of obstacles in her way - (a) general's wife (b) demon hunters after her (c) her need for human hearts.

This is basically a much better scripted and with much less sex version of a movie a much younger Mousie saw at midnight on Cinemax when she was curious about that mysterious sex thing (my friends and I all used to call the channel 'skinemax' for a reason). That particular masterpiece was all about a husband who rescued and brought home an evil homewrecker who pushed the wife down the stairs and had sexytimes with the husband. I don't think she was a demon though. Just think how much angst could have been avoided if the general subscribed to cinemax!

Anyway, I loved the movie but my ultimate conclusion was that Chen Kun was the real 'painted skin' demon - he's prettier than both his leading ladies combined.




Oh, and as a wonderful bonus, this movie also has Donnie Yen and Sun Li as a pair of awesome demon-hunters. I ended up wishing there was a drama about them and their demon-hunting adventures and (hopefully) their inevitable hook-up.



Thanks for reccing it, [livejournal.com profile] ockoala!!!

Unlike [livejournal.com profile] ockoala, however, who shipped the general with the demon, I shipped him with his wife. Because of the whole "not a murderous evil demon" thing :P Plus, they were cute together and also, married people, represent!
