The planned reburial of a village elder goes awry as the corpse resurrects into a hopping, bloodthirsty vampire, threatening mankind. Therefore, a Taoist Priest and his two disciples attempt to stop the terror.
Hong Kong pop star Sam Hui stars as the cowardly Mo Chung, who becomes a gallant hero when drunk. He is on a mission to infiltrate his brother and sister-in-law's plot to blackmail the wealthy Simon Hing (Ricky Hui).
This is another period comedy from Director Clifton Ko, known for his happy-go-lucky and carefree films.

You still manage to get a few laughs out of the film, but only those who truly love nonsensical comedy would enjoy this film.
