Critic Reviews for Mr. Vampire
mixing and matching with wild abandon scenes of knockabout comedy, wire-wrought martial arts, monster horror and wacky dancing.
Jiangshi is a kind of hybrid vampire and zombie, but the film is generally fast and loose with its monsters. Consistency is not a strength of this era of Hong Kong horror, nor does anyone want it to be.
Mr. Vampire is tremendous fun, full of atmosphere, funny and exciting in all the right doses.
"Mr Vampire" is a genre classic, whose amalgam of mainstream elements will satisfy any viewer who wants to have fun.
Audience Reviews for Mr. Vampire
Not our average vampire movie. The title is a little misleading as well since the main character is not the vampire, and there are ghosts in the movie as well as vampires. Having said that, this is a fun, humorous, and somewhat creepy horror flick. A wonderful combination of action, comedy and horror genres. Plus if you don't know a lot about Asian culture, you get to see how they deal with the supernatural. A good movie, I recommend it.
There are great fight sequences and a great story and acting. The martial-arts scenes are the best parts of the movie, but the horror-comedy sequences are still entertaining about the master has to stop the vampires and demons. Anyone interested in kung-fu movies should check this out for Siu-hou Chin's performance alone. The guy is incredible, and puts on some great fights.
Extemely silly chop-socky fun featuring incompetent monks battling hopping chinese vampires. Yet another film Quentin Tarantino "borrowed" from in his script for From Dusk Til Dawn
