1985 - MR VAMPIRE, classic horror comedy from Hong Kong

The Chinese like it fast and very goofy in this vampire comedy which features hopping vampires.  They have it figured out, vampire films are kind of stupid

 I actually laughed at loud at this nonsense particularly the scenes where the Taoist priest attempts to keep his assistant from turning into a vampire by filing down his teeth.

This was a big hit when it came out in Taiwan and was responsible for three sequels. 

As usual with these Hong Kong films from the 1980's the stunt work is very impressive.

96 minutes.
