Although we are used to Hong Kong vampire horror films like SPOOKY ENCOUNTERS and the MR.VAMPIRE series, that depict Chinese hopping vampires ('jiang shi'), this little gem has a Western vampire ('xi xue gui') and starts with a reporter (a wonderful as always Kent Cheng) confronting the unstoppable monster in a neon-lit 80's Hong Kong. Excellent blend of horror and comedy, with solid direction, nice touches of gore FX and a nice mix of scares and laughs. A perfect midnight screening for fans of 80's HK horror and unfortunately they don't make them like that anymore...
