Storyline

In ancient China, a demon was defeated in a fierce battle with a priest, who sealed it's evil spirit in a vase. Centuries later, during the cultural revolution, rebels attempted to gain possession of the vessel from the priest's descendant; however, he threw it into the ocean to keep it from being tampered. The vase was recovered years later in Hong Kong and was auctioned off to a councilman. The demon, unfortunately, escaped and took control of the councilman's body, beginning a spree of terror in the city. Written by Oliver Chu

Decent Chinese Horror comedy
5 April 2006 | by See all my reviews

A vampire/evil spirit long sealed up in an ancient urn is released and begins to take over various members of a family in a quest to gain power and get revenge on the descendant of those who imprisoned him.

This not not your typical Chinese vampire film. Actually I'm not sure that the villain is even really a vampire despite the title. There is no hopping just some fright masks and some possession, which is fine by me. There's some good humor and some good scares in what is a nicely balanced horror comedy (which is nice for a change since many of the horror comedies tend to be laugh heavy.) I doubt it will ever change the world but its definitely worth a bag of popcorn and a soda, which is some times all you can ask.
