Our Ranking

short review:

Wild mixture of horror/fantasy/magic and eastern fables. Including a sort of humour difficult to understand when you're not already used to it for some time. The plot offers Kung-Fu Baby Zombies, hopping Undead, horny corpses and a tragic tale of love. Weird weird story, but nevertheless somehow entertaining, even though the vampiric aspect wasn't the biggest.
