short review:

My first thought was: oh my, another one of these Hong Kong movies filled with hopping vampires and not-so-funny jokes. But I was completely wrong! The vampires were portrayed like in the traditional western hemisphere lore, with fangs, capes, fear of crosses, great power and a (indispensable for a true vampire movie) thirst for blood. And the few jokes were even amusing. Furthermore the film contains a tragic love story between the good-hearted Duke Lee and the mortal Anna, obstructed by another (evil) vampire. So, all the needed ingredients for 90 minutes of good entertainment are existent - you won't regret it!
