The Man From Death tells of a man brought back to life in a deal forged in a prophetic, blood-drawn list of tasks he must fulfill in order to either help him seek vengeance for the death of his family, or even redemption…but preferably, hopefully revenge. The forthcoming cast for the movie currently lists Lim with actor and martial artist Mike Moh (The Inhumans, Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist, Empire), with newly-attached scribes Justin Giddings and Ryan Welsh (Bite Me – series, This Is Normal) on script detail.
That said, it was back in 2013 that netizens caught wind of actor Eric R. Lim‘s performance in The Forge, a work of spiritual magnitude in the essence of epic good vs. evil storytelling with a message. The shortfilm was a very personal one for Lim and its director Stephen Reedy who I have actually been trying to follow since I became a fan of his work with the MTV award-winning kung fu comedy from The Stunt People, Undercut, which is still a fresh and fantastic piece of work to this day.
Three high school students are forced to make up a chemistry test during after school detention. Over the course of the afternoon, they discover that their Chemistry teacher, Eugene Yamamoto, has been leading a secret double life as a crime-fighting Power Ranger. When an escaped mutant lobster shows up in the hallways seeking revenge for his arrest at the hands of Mr. Yamamoto, they must use the science principles from the test that they failed to help him defeat it.A hybrid throwback to the educational after school specials of the 90s and the Japanese Tokusatsu genre.
