Just bad...
5 October 2001 | by (Maple Ridge) – See all my reviews

Chinese vampires that hop around like bunnies who can only be killed by placing a piece of tape on their face chase around a bunch of people with really bad haircuts. Yes, it's as bad as it sounds. There's even some pretty awful kung-fu scenes, not to mention really bad dialogue ("What's that thing over there? Let's kill it!"). Acting is awful and the "terrifying effects" advertised on the box consists of some really really really bad makeup work. If you ever find it in the far far corner of your video store (which is highly unlikely), rent it if you like laughing at awful movies. And believe me, this one is awful...
