The Hopping Vampires Return!
15 October 2014 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

Vampire Buster Lam Ching-Ying does it again with another Mr. Vampire-inspired horror flick from Hong Kong, where he this time, as Master Gau, joins forces with his colleagues to capture their village of escaped ghosts and return them to the spirit world. He must also deal with his corrupted senior colleague and a female ghost who befriended his two disciples.

Filmed with much momentum, cool special effects, good acting, and haunting music, this is one entertaining movie that mixes in ghost action with slapstick (but not too much) humor. Gau's mission to capture all the escapes ghosts while his two disciples grapple with their crafty and sinister colleague counterpart, with a benevolent female ghost along for the ride, serves as an exciting plot element. The highlight of the film is when Gau and his disciples grapple with dozens of the famous hopping vampires under the full moon.

I would have liked to see Lam Ching-Ying perform some more martial arts action, but it's still a fun-filled movie and one of the better ghost/vampire flicks of the genre!

Grade B+
