First Teaser for Dante Lam’s “That Demon Within” Looks Like a Return to Visionary HK Cinema


A short but intense teaser has been released for the highly anticipated new fil from Dante Lam, That Demon Within. Starring Daniel Wu and Nick Cheung the trailer emphasizes the film’s colorful palate, dark imagery, and the promise of street level gunplay and violence.

Synopsis: By a strange twist of fate, dutiful Hong Kong policeman Dan saves the life of the leader of a violent gang of armed robbers.  When they commit another crime, Dan is determined to put an end to their activities.  He works with the leader, whom the gang had betrayed, to engineer a plan to wreak havoc within the gang and let the gangsters kill one another.  But it becomes increasingly obvious to Dan and to his colleagues that Dan is suffering from a severe mental disorder, and Dan finds that instead of upholding the law as a righteous police officer, he has now become a fugitive wanted for murder.
