This is a dark comedy horror from Hong Kong, a story about a group of opium smugglers, disguised as Taoist Priests transporting hopping corpses, who is asked to transport a real corpse to its final resting place. However, they accidentally lose it in a pool of quicksand and it later resurrects into a vampire, going on a deadly rampage and attempting to avenge his death by finding his killer.
This film's cinematography was pretty dark and plot is quite fast-paced; we get into the vampire action fairly quickly. The acting was good, with some funny one-liners mixed in, courtesy of Kent Cheng. We unfortunately do not see the face of the vampire until the very end, but it does gives off that sense of suspense and intrigue of the unknown creature.
It's not as good as the later movies in the Mr. Vampire series or in the ghost comedy genre due to lack of character development and limited action, but it's a decent enough movie for a horror night.
