Movie Details

Vampire Cleanup Department

A secret organisation known as the Vampire Cleanup Department (VCD) have members - known as the Vampire Hunters - that are in charge of getting rid of vampires in the city. This explains why no humans have ever seen vampires around as the members are very efficient. One day, Tim Cheung, a typical local Hong Kong teenager who lives with his grandma and plays his iPhone every day, is suddenly invited to be the new member of the VCD. So he is trained to be a Vampire Hunter and he fights vampires with his broom. His mission is to eradicate the Vampire Emperor and a lady vampire named Summer, who was buried alive as a sacrifice a hundred years ago. However, Tim must choose to either abandon his mission or complete it as he and Summer have started falling in love with each other.

The Good, the Bad and the Vampire Hunter:

• Bringing back the classic and nostalgic hopping vampires, the movie pays homage to many Hong Kong goofy horror comedies from the 80s and 90s.

• The movie is enjoyable but has its flaws, which can be especially found in its unenthusiastic romance between the hero and the vampire girl.

• Nevertheless, newbie actress Li Min Chen did a commendable job in her role despite not being able to utter a single sentence, hence relying only on her facial expressions to deliver her character.

• Chin Siu Ho who is almost synonymous with the Chinese vampire genre shows great amount of growth in his role as a sifu, compared to when he played a mere lackey in the 80s vampire films.

• The movie may be predictable, but it is filled with witty little jokes, so it's quite likable and hard to hate.
