Jumping Chinese vampires = pure fun!
10 November 2002 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

John Fasano,the man behind "Rock'n'Roll Nightmare" and "Black Roses" directed also this silly trash.This film is bad,but I found it to be genuinely enjoyable.The acting is horrible-James Hong's("The Vineyard") performance is actually the best!Of course jumping Chinese vampires are laughable-"The Jitters" is the kind of a movie that certainly will leave you amused.Pure fun,if you like trash cinema!
