The Bride Who Has Returned From Hell

  • Director: Xin Qi
  • Country: Taiwan
  • Year: 1965

A free screening of a classic Taiwanese-language film, The Bride Who Has Returned from Hell.

Made in 1965 and adapted from Victoria Holt’s novel, Mistress of Mellyn, this film embodies the Taiwanese-language film industry’s enthusiasm for exploring new stories, fresh elements, and foreign influences. The ‘who-done-it’ narrative combines family melodrama’s rifts, risks, and restoration of domestic order with suspense, mystery, romantic entanglement, and supernatural elements of Gothic romance. Highly enjoyable.

The event will be introduced by Dr Ming-Yeh Rawnsley (SOAS, University of London). There will also be a post-screening discussion with Ms Teresa Huang, Director of Restoration, Taiwan Film Institute.
