Movie Info

Ricky Lau directs this fantastically successful horror yarn that successfully fused high-flying slapstick with creepy genre atmospherics. The film opens with Taoist priest Kau (Lam Ching-ying) along with his two hapless assistants, Chou (Chin Siu-ho) and Man Choi (Ricky Hui Koon-ying), set out to fix the Yam family's recent streak of bad fortune. The priest soon concludes that a vengeful feng shui master had tricked the family into burying its elder in a manner that was bound to reap bad luck. … More

Audience Reviews for Mr. Vampire

Not our average vampire movie. The title is a little misleading as well since the main character is not the vampire, and there are ghosts in the movie as well as vampires. Having said that, this is a fun, humorous, and somewhat creepy horror flick. A wonderful combination of action, comedy and horror genres. Plus if you don't know a lot about Asian culture, you get to see how they deal with the supernatural. A good movie, I recommend it.

There are great fight sequences and a great story and acting. The martial-arts scenes are the best parts of the movie, but the horror-comedy sequences are still entertaining about the master has to stop the vampires and demons. Anyone interested in kung-fu movies should check this out for Siu-hou Chin's performance alone. The guy is incredible, and puts on some great fights.

Extemely silly chop-socky fun featuring incompetent monks battling hopping chinese vampires. Yet another film Quentin Tarantino "borrowed" from in his script for From Dusk Til Dawn
