Storyline

A Hong Kong police station used to be a clubhouse of the Japanese at the time of their occupation of the city during World War II. However, at the end of the war, many of the Japanese committed haka kiri in the clubhouse. In the present time, after thief Sneaky Ming (Billy Lau) was captured and incarcerated at the station, he was lured into a world of the paranormal by the spirits of those still inhabiting the building. He was tricked into unleashing the fierce General Issei (Rico Chu), who resurrects into a vampire and wreaks havoc in the city. As a result, police officers Kam Mark-K (Jacky Cheung) and Man-Chill (Ricky Hui) attempt to put a stop to the terror. Written by Oliver Chu

Great Movie of the 80s!
11 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a great classic! One of the best of that era that combined really funny slap sticks with truly scary moments as well.

And I do mean scary. In fact, some of the scenes in this movie are more scary than some of the so-called "pure horror" movies that are intentionally made only to scare. The plot is also pretty plausible, with the action fast, and intense. The horror is nicely balanced with comedy that will leave you laughing in stitches that makes the whole movie that much easier to stomach.

Kudos to Jacky Cheung too for his terrific performance and rubbery face! I would rate this a 10 out of 10 for the nostalgia! Must see for Hong Kong movie fans.
