The First Vampire in China (1986)
Reviewed by: STSH on 2000-08-22
Summary: Sillier than Mr Vampire
This one can't decide if it wants to be silly comedy or horror... so it fails at both.
Cha Cho does his usual turn as a self-possessed minor official. The dynamic Hwang Jang Lee doesn't seem to get much chance to show off his awesome fu skills.
The only bright spots are
1. Shing Fui On's short appearance as a hopping corpse, whom the vampire hunters trick into skipping !
and
2. Charlie Cho and his assistant do battle with a vampire rooster. Truly unique and hilarious !

Otherwise, unremarkable.
