Storyline

A Hong Kong police station used to be a clubhouse of the Japanese at the time of their occupation of the city during World War II. However, at the end of the war, many of the Japanese committed haka kiri in the clubhouse. In the present time, after thief Sneaky Ming (Billy Lau) was captured and incarcerated at the station, he was lured into a world of the paranormal by the spirits of those still inhabiting the building. He was tricked into unleashing the fierce General Issei (Rico Chu), who resurrects into a vampire and wreaks havoc in the city. As a result, police officers Kam Mark-K (Jacky Cheung) and Man-Chill (Ricky Hui) attempt to put a stop to the terror. Written by Oliver Chu

The usual blend of comedy hijinks and old-fashioned horror
19 June 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

THE HAUNTED COP SHOP is your typical fun knockabout Hong Kong comedy horror packed with action and intrigue. The storyline involves a police station with a haunted past and the return of one or two ghosts intent on wreaking mayhem in the vicinity. Only a couple of upstanding young cops and their pretty superior have the power to prevent catastrophe.

You know what you're getting with a film like this and THE HAUNTED COP SHOP doesn't disappoint. It features the great pairing of Jacky Cheung (BULLET IN THE HEAD) and Ricky Hui (MR. VAMPIRE) as the two cops who are variously scared out of their wits as the storyline progresses. As is usual for a Hong Kong film like this, the first half is a little slow and more rooted in reality, while the second kicks off with near-constant action and hijinks.

This time around the villain duties come from a random Japanese Dracula guy and his army of the undead. It's not quite as effects-fuelled as some of the other Hong Kong horrors I've watched from the same era (such as the two POSSESSED movies) but it has plentiful action, comedy, and horror, so it makes for a very easy watch.
