Tsui Hark's Vampire Hunters (The Era of Vampires) Reviews
I Like Horror Movies
The Chinese DON'T HAVE VAMPIRES in their mythology. The ghoulish undead are REALLY CALLED "KYONSHI".
The dubbers try to westernize the Kyonshi and all of it's unique traits by saying "OUR VAMPIRES ARE VERY DIFFERENT."
I find that rot...hard to swallow.
Give it a look if you're feeling brave, but this one just didn't grab me.
Entertaining even if it did drag at times.
BTW, hopping zombies is really funny. Really.
The fight sequences were brilliant, although almost too ostentatious to be taken seriously. In terms of a plot, this was incredibly bad. The fact of the matter is that this is way too silly to be considered a horror, but it misses the mark on comedy. I'm not actually sure how to describe it. A cult classic wannabe.
