Goofs

Throughout the film, the three tiers of candles in the church are repeatedly rolled on, disrupted, smothered, kicked, and generally scattered about; however, every time they are shown again on screen, even when there have been only moments since they were last disturbed, all three rows of candles are upright and tidy. This is particularly visible during the final fight scene. When Uncle rolls over the candles to escape the vampire, they transform again to upright and orderly before the fight ends. See more »

Mr. Vampire losing his entertainment powers.
5 February 2016 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

This is a ghost comedy from Hong Kong, clichely called "Exorcist Master" in English. It features Lam Ching-Ying as Master Chiou, who is an exorcist/kung fu master, and with him he takes under his wing his two disciples named Star and Moon. Then, the plot centers around a church, battling evil spirits, and dealing with a corrupt mayor of the town.

There is the usual Taoist magic and martial arts action in this ghost movie, but well into the 1990s, this genre has been losing steam and this movie was no exception, even with Lam Ching-Ying in it. Even though he is the only saving grace in the movie, there were very few charms, suspense and intrigue that are usually found in the earlier horror and ghost comedies. Even the comedy is immature and tacky at best.

Not the best out there, but wouldn't hurt to watch it at least once.
