Geung Si Sin Sang / Mr. Vampire (1985)

Dir: Ricky Lau

This is the one that started it all. Hopping Chinese vampires, sticky rice repellent, Taoist priests that can karate chop the fuck outta you, zombies, and other supernatural beings. Lam Ching Ying(our Taoist priest and vampire hunter) is the Sifu Eternal and cashed in on multiple sequels and non-official alike - so many that I can almost doubt anyone has all in their possession.

Lam Ching Ying has two pupils, learning the arts of martial, alongside defeating hopping corpses... Yeah, the vampires of China hop. This is due to the fact that walking somehow causes harm to the feet. Sticky rice is also something extra to these undead - they cannot pass it, in a circular formation. This sounds cheesy enough, yeah? Well, it's slapstick(ala Evil Dead) done with a humour of damn fine execution. This mixed in with the stunts our characters can perform make it visually appealing, too.

Lam has his hands full as both of his students have been afflicted with two types of supernatural - infection and mesmerism. One is slowly turning into a vampire, and the other gets nightly visits from a gorgeous ghost who is not with an evil purpose; she finds the guy attractive for all the right reasons.
This meeting her every night starts to seep his lifeforce out.

The trailer I am about to post makes Mr Vampire out to be something of heavy duty hardcore shit, but it's ludicrous and entertaining all the same. Try something different if you haven't experienced the Chinese vampire yet! Also, I somehow ended up with a blu ray disc with 8 Sifu Eternal discs onnit. If anyone is interested? I no longer need it.
