Storyline

Two local Taoist Priests, Chin and Wu, compete for the task of handling the corpse of a triad commander in a Chinese village. Wu sabotages Chin by resurrecting the corpse, turning it into a vampire. While Chin and his disciple Tai-Fa battle the vampire, another disciple named Wei Chui (a small-time grave robber) accidentally transfers some of his breath onto a female corpse while trying to rob her grave, reviving her, who mimics his every move. Written by Oliver Chu

Couldn't capitalize on the Mr. Vampire hype.
22 October 2013 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

This movie was probably made to capitalize on the success of Mr. Vampire, which was released the year before. It's a movie about two local Taoist Priests who try to compete for the task of handling a corpse in a Chinese village. However, one priest sabotages the other by intentionally resurrecting the corpse into a vampire.

This movie started off with some neat vampire horror and some Taoist magic action by actor Fat Chung, who portrayed one of the priests. However, the movie slowed and dragged on when the attention focused on the sub-plot involving a grieving police marshal and the moving zombie of his dead girlfriend, played by Pauline Wong. The subplot involved a lot of silly and boring slapstick comedy, which would go on to take up about a good 20-30 minutes of the movie. Major vampire action didn't occur until the very end; however, even the main action was very average at best - nothing scary or intriguing. The Taoist Priests (have to add that the sabotaging one, played by Yuet Sang Chin, was very cocky and annoying) and their disciples didn't even do a lot of "vampire busting" in the movie and a good deal of the classic Kung-Fu and magic spells were missing.

Overall, one of the more unremarkable Chinese vampire films that I wouldn't mind not watching again.
