Vampire Combat
Hong Kong 2001
Directed by Wilson Tong.


Every hundred years or so the planets align and this evil demon guy can pop up and take over the world, provided he has the right sacrifice. A few hundred years ago, his plans were foiled by former disciples, and they got half of his magic power book. They learned enough magic to extend their lives to the next attempt. Flash forward, and the demon's lackeys are trying to grab the sacrificial girl, but she's being protected by a detective with paranormal vision. The detective, the girl, and the immortals must band together to defeat the evil or die trying. Sorry, no vampires, particularly, though the opening scene is obviously inspired by, of all things, John Carpenter's VAMPIRES. Some good special effects are thrown around, but the production is generally ugly, the story boring, and the cast lifeless.
