This is another vampire film from Hong Kong, where a scientist resurrects a corpse, stolen from a procession, with a chemical substance, turning it into a a super vampire immune to most charms. The only thing that can somewhat control the vampire's behavior is the sound of music, and the town's mayor tasks Tao Priest Mah Mah-Tay (Shu-Fan Fung) and his two disciples to stop the creature.
This movie does have some interesting vampire action, with the creature terrorizing the townspeople left and right to the Tao Priest and his two disciples attempting to tame his aggressive power. There are some enjoyable slapstick humor, at the expense of Shui-Fan Fung, and a notable appearance by actor Lam Ching-Ying, though he plays second fiddle to Fung's character. However, the love-hate relationship between the two colleagues is entertaining to watch. The subplot of the two disciples trying to impress the daughter of the village elder, though, is kind of boring and out of place for this type of movie.
Overall, this film does lack some of the charm and hype of earlier vampire movies of the 1980s. The zest and spirit just wasn't there and the overall plot weren't as exciting as in past films. The cast of characters were pretty average, with the exception of Shui-Fan Fung and Lam Ching-Ying. Again, overall, an average movie.
