One creepy creature after the other!
28 September 2013 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

Lam Ching Ying, famous for his "Vampire Buster" roles, stars as the One-Eyebrow Priest in this movie. He discovers that the water supply in his village is infected with bats and must seek the source of the flying creatures. It leads to an old church, where its two practicing priests disappeared years ago. The corpse of one of the priest is recovered and, unfortunately, changes into a vampire.

This film is non-stop fun as Lam Ching Ying and his disciples battle paranormal creatures including ghosts and zombies one after the other. His bag full of magic spells you've come to recognize in Hong Kong vampire movies are seen in this film along with some good Kung-Fu action, dry humor and toe-tapping music. The special effects, especially with the bat sequence, are realistic and well done.

The hopping Chinese vampires are absent in this film, except for the little child vampire, which I think adds a touch of lightheartedness and blends in well with the cast. The main antagonist of the film is a Western Dracula-type vampire, creepy and hair-raising that gives this film full of suspense.

If you are a fan of Hong Kong horror movies in general, definitely give this film a look.
