Vampire Controller
Hong Kong 2001
Directed by Tony Leung Hung-wah.


Here's a throwback to the old hopping vampire comedies of the eighties, which even tries to add a little hopping-vampire lore. Two sifus, two disciples, driving two different groups of corpses through the woods, stop at the same temple for the night. It's important, we are told, to keep male corpses and female corpses apart, so they don't start getting stiff in all the wrong places. Lots of comedy hijinks ensue, none of it funny. But the worst omission in this nostalgic recollection of the popular vampire genre is that there is no kung-fu action whatsoever. Lam Ching-Ying, you are sorely missed.
