Film of the Week #168: Geung si sin sang AKA Mr. Vampire (1985)

Posted Image

Summary:
During a reburial, the local priest notices that the corpse has not decomposed and has the blue fingernails typical of a vampire. Before he can destroy the vampire, it escapes. Now he must deal with the menace, aided only by his two bumbling assistants, one of whom is soon infected by the vampire's poison while the other is enjoying the embrace of a life-eating she-ghost. The humorous highlight of the movie are the Chinese vampires, who hop comically, which must be seen to be believed.

Not really my cup of tea. Original, certainly.

Saw this one last week. Liked it, definitely a fair classic, but I liked the sequels (the ones I've seen) better. Weirder, funnier, faster, just overall more fun.

I gave this one a 6/10

I liked the comedy bits.

It was chock full of cliches, but that didn't prevent it from being an enjoyable watch.
