A criminal comes to town in order to kill Billy Chong over a past dispute. But instead of getting his own hands dirty, he hires a Taoist wizard to animate some zombies to do the job for him. The plan goes horribly awry, and the bad guy ends up getting killed in his own trap. This pisses off the villain's spirit and he forces the priest to reincarnate him - only they can't find a suitable body. Meanwhile, an undead fiend of sorts comes to town to kill Billy's father over some other past dispute. This is where all of Billy's kung fu training comes in handy, and he manages to kill the attacker. With this, the other bad guy finally has a body to use, but the reincarnation goes wrong and the corpse is reborn as a vampire. Written by Ørnås

ej's kung-fu capsule review for films of the chop-socky old-school -

1. basic plot type - fantasy comedy, supernatural-'fu

2. plot construction - confusing

3. dramatic - no

4. funny - tries to be, but fails

5. dialog - ridiculous

6. cast performance - poor

7. crew performance - poor

8. amount of fighting - appears to be lots

9. quality of fighting - bad; loses interest

10. special any cast or crew notes - billy chong's worst movie ever, and he plays an unlikeable character; in fact, there are no likable characters in this film; the only thing of historical interest here is the introduction of Japanese anime references into an old-school chop-socky

11. big positive - none

12. big negative - it was ever made

bottom-line - who should see this movie - kung-fu completists only
