According to demon lore, it takes hundreds of years to attain human form. Even then, lacking a human heart, a demon cannot experience the true pains and passions of existence. However, there is a legend that if a pure human heart is freely offered to a demon, it can become a mortal and experience true life. -- Huayi Brothers Media Corporation.

November 11th, 2012

Painted Skin was released in its native China and was a huge hit with moviegoers, critics, and was even a success during Awards Season in that part of the world. Painted Skin: Resurrection reportedly cost $24 million and earned over $100 million internationally. On the other hand, when it was released in limited release here, it barely made a noise.
