This screening is introduced by Andy Willis, season curator and Reader in Film Studies at the University of Salford.
The new Hong Kong action maestro Dante Lam is behind this taut and ultimately unsettling psychological thriller. Quiet and distant cop Dave (Daniel Wu) is increasingly haunted by the violent images of a criminal gang who use traditional demon masks when committing their crimes. Truth, reality and imagination begin to blur in this stylish film with which Lam once again brings a new energy to the Hong Kong crime film.
CRIME: Hong Kong Style is pleased to present the UK Premiere of That Demon Within at the Glasgow Film Festival on 23 February 2016.
