Mr. Vampire – The planned reburial of a village elder goes awry as the corpse resurrects into a hopping, bloodthirsty vampire, threatening mankind. Therefore, a Taoist Priest and his two disciples attempt to stop the terror. One day, he accepts an assignment from a wealthy businessman, Yam, to remove Yam’s deceased father from his grave and rebury him, with the hopes that doing so will bring more prosperity to the Yam family. Unfortunately, upon opening the coffin, Kau notices the body is still intact, even though it has been years since he died. Realising that it is a vampire, Kau orders it to be moved to his house for further study and to be subject to spells that will prevent it from awakening. Kau deduces that Yam’s father had died angry, and his last breath became stuck in his body for years, causing it to keep him “alive” and reducing it to a mindless state.
