I'd been looking for, and forward to, this film for years, after having thoroughly confused it with Ghost Fever (which has a similar story, theme and cast). And finally having got it, 'tis not as much fun as I'd hoped.
Reviewer Score: 5
This could be partly due to the comedy being very much in classic Stephen Chow territory (he's not in the film) - toilet humour, bum jokes, food jokes etc, which is the sort of humour which I hate.
Not that the whole film suffers to Chow curse. Much of it is amusing to wacky, with little restraint and much opening of mouths wide. Amy Yip has a reasonably large part (yes, you may snigger), and one of the vampires even gets to undo the top button on her low-cut dress (hmmmmmm).
Having paired them for so long, I can't help comparing this one to Ghost Fever, and it doesn't come up well. The story is even more jumbled than these farces usually are. But they do get a few good shots at parodying Chinese Ghost Story, there's Chingmy and Amy to gawk at, and who can ask more of a light ghost vampire comedy ?
