Vampire movie for the kids.
7 October 2013 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

I don't remember much from this movie, as I haven't seen it since I was a little kid. What I do recall is that this movie was probably made to capitalize on the popularity of 1985's Mr. Vampire, which was released the year before.

Like Mr. Vampire, the main villain in this movie is a hopping adult Chinese vampire, ready to make victims by biting their necks and sucking their blood. But, this film is pretty much aimed for kids, as a bunch of child actors take center stage. They learn martial arts and befriend a child vampire, which is portrayed as harmless and friendly. The kids try to help the child vampire find its way home, while dealing with the more menacing adult one.

It's a lot of kiddie slapstick humor, which was something I enjoyed watching when I was a kid. Today, this movie would probably be too childish for me. If you have kids, this one would be a good introduction to Chinese hopping vampires. If you are a hardcore fan of the more conventional and sophisticated Chinese vampire films, stick with the Mr. Vampire series or others in the genre starring martial artist star and "Vampire Buster" Lam Ching-Ying.
