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

Second half is better.
21 October 2014 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

This is one of those nonsensical comedies from Hong Kong, but with a horror theme. Here, according to the IMDb summary, 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, and the army's general, Issei (Rico Chu), was inadvertently released by a thief years later and resurrects into a vampire. As a result, police officers Kam Mark-K (Jacky Cheung) and Man-Chill (Ricky Hui) attempt to put a stop to the terror.

The movie is full of slapstick and goofy humor, and you need to be a true fan of nonsensical stuff in order to appreciate the comedy. There are a few cool horror moments toward the beginning of the movie, like the clubhouse ghost scene which reminds me of the hotel ballroom scene in The Shining - full of spirits in a flashback sequence. However, that scene dragged on too long, which led to middle of the movie which was mostly about the two officers trying to get to their superior's good side. The more exciting ghost and vampire action doesn't happen until the latter half of the movie.

You will get a few scares and some laugh-out-loud comedy, but forward to the latter half of the movie for the more entertaining stuff.

Grade C+
