Ancient Chinese-Kiwi vampire film -good for amateur
1 December 2008 | by wedgwoodSee all my reviews

The fact that this scored over seven out of ten up to now doesn't count for much since it's only had eight votes. For a D-rate Kiwi vampire film with a budget of $16,000 it's actually pretty accurate though.

It's extremely amateur but not so naturally without talent that you 'need' to turn it off. I found it progressive and kinda amusing. "Kung Fu Vampire Killers" shows a decided lack of effort but it transcends the belief that it meant to do that, and that's what's provocative about it. The sound, the picture, and the dialogue appear so cheaply effective it actually seems genuine. I liked this movie. A lot. But I fully realize that most people won't, especially general American audiences.

This is totally true, if you're from the us, you don't like independent or foreign (or cult) films, don't bother. You'll think it's the end of the world. Everyone else (probably the minority) I recommend it, even if it's just so you can say you saw it all the way through. Even if it's just the title that attracted you.

It's a journey boys and girls.
