(2008; Directors Gordon Chan and Danny Ko)          View trailer below

Painted Skin is a 2008 supernatural fantasy film directed by Gordon Chan, starring Donnie Yen, Chen Kun, Zhou Xun, Zhao Wei, Betty Sun and Qi Yuwu. Although the film is based partly on a supernatural premise about a fox spirit who devours the hearts of her victims, it is more of an action-romance than a horror film. Painted Skin is based, very loosely, on one of Pu Songling’s classic short stories in Strange Stories from a Chinese Studio. The theme song of the film, Huà Xīn (畫心; Painted Heart), was performed by Jane Zhang. (Wikipedia).
