At different points in the movie wires were used, so, the production staff had to make sure the wires were not visible on screen. To achieve that, they would spray the wires with the same color as the set's background. If the wires were shown, the staff would have to take the film overseas to fix, which was not popular at that time. It was notable that the scene where actor Siu-Ho Chin performed a back-flip up the door involved no wires. See more »

"Mr. Vampire" is bar none one of the most imaginative, entertaining, and creative stories ever committed to film. In this movie, Master Gau (Ching-Ying Lam), and his two bumbling students, Chou (Siu-hou Chin) and Man (Ricky Hui), deal with the awakened corpse of a man whose body has been buried inauspiciously. The hopping ghost goes on rampage through the town, killing several innocent bystanders. Add to this mix a bumbling cop who, under pressure to apprehend this heinous murderer, decides that one suspect is as good as another and arrests Master Gau. Throw in a ghostly romance and a zombie-on-zombie mêlée and you have one of the East's cinematic masterpieces.
Aside from the truly awe inspiring wire work, gymnastics, acrobatics, and martial arts displays, Mr. Vampire also gives us characters whose company we truly enjoy. In another refreshing turn, verbal wit plays as much a role in the humor of this movie as the Buster Keatonesque slapstick.
Buy it, rent it, do whatever you have to in order to see this. One viewing will hardly be enough.
One hundred out of ten - quite possibly one of the best of its genre and no doubt one of the best ever.
