According to producer Sammo Kam-Bo Hung, the idea for Mr. Vampire (1985) originated through childhood stories he heard from his mother, who was also an actress. One of the major sources of inspiration for the Mr. Vampire (1985) was from a collection of supernatural tales called "Strange Stories from a Chinese Studio" by Qing Dynasty writer Pu Songling. Mr. Vampire (1985) was based on a story of a resurrected corpse. The script was not written by Ricky Lau alone, as it was written by many script writers including Cheuk-Hon Szeto, Jing Wong and Barry Wong. When the script was finished Eric Tsang and Sammo Kam-Bo Hung reviewed it and then gave Lau recommendations. See more »

This film has to be one of the most entertaining of all time. There are great fight sequences and a great story and acting. The best part would have to be comedy. I've never laughed so much watching any film. Watch for the scene with the dead uncle and the perverted police officer. It is for me, the funniest scene ever filmed.
