5.0 out of 5 stars Silly brilliance from start to finish, 14 Feb. 2003
This review is from: Mr Vampire [1985] [DVD] (DVD)
Mr Vampire is in my opinion one of the best films ever to come out of Hong Kong with the film spawning a whole series of 'hopping-vampire' movies. Although it may be a slight disappointment for fight and horror fans alike that isn't what Mr Vampire is about. From the opening sequence in the mortuary you can tell it's going to be farcial slapstick affair, and that's exactly what's delivered, with our undertaking heroes being played by Lam Ching Ying, Ricky Hui and Chin Siu Ho with such energy and enjoyment you can't help but become engrosed in the series of farcial situations the hapless trio get themselves into and out of while trying to outwit their worryingly inept bloodsucking foe, from Man Choi's(Hui) constant dancing (to avoid turning into a vampire), to Malcolm's(Ho) love affair with a ghost with a detachable head, to the mysterious jail-house branding I can honestly say every scene in the movies brings tears to my eyes. Since discovering this movie I've been forcing friends and family to watch, even those who dislike Hong Kong cinema and subtitled films, and I have yet to find anybody who hasn't succumed to the relentless charm and fun that Mr Vampire exudes. This particular verison of the films has been lovingly restored by the Hong Kong Legends label and therefore doesn't suffer from the poor picture quality and 'comedy-broken-english-subtitling' you may get for other distributors.
