Storyline

In ancient China, a demon was defeated in a fierce battle with a priest, who sealed it's evil spirit in a vase. Centuries later, during the cultural revolution, rebels attempted to gain possession of the vessel from the priest's descendant; however, he threw it into the ocean to keep it from being tampered. The vase was recovered years later in Hong Kong and was auctioned off to a councilman. The demon, unfortunately, escaped and took control of the councilman's body, beginning a spree of terror in the city. Written by Oliver Chu

In the midst of a revolution, Cheung Il's son is denouncing his father as a Tradionalist (the son is now affiliated with Chairman Mao) The son and his communist cronies want to destroy an urn that Cheung says holds a very evil spirit. Of course they don't believe him, so to save the urn Cheung throws it in the ocean. 20 years later, it's found again where it's sold in an auction to Councillor Kay. Of course it's only a matter of time before the malevolent spirit finds a way out of the urn, which he does and promptly possesses Kay. His family however are extremely obvious to this. And comedic action ensues. I didn't really care for this film that much and even though the version i saw was entitled "Vampire busters" there was very sadly none of the mystic Chinese Hopping Vampires that made me want to watch this in the first place. That being said, the film IS good only in small doses. This film is available on DVD on a double-bill with "Vampire Honeymoon" and marketed as "Terror Tales Volume 1"
