The Movie

An archeologist identifies three well preserved bodies - a family - and determines to sell them ... his idiot assistants manage to damage the charms controlling the vampires which then go on the rampage ... except for the littles, which leads an ET-type life, protected by children and behaving (apart form a little diversion to the blood bank), until he sees his parents being attacked, on the television news ....

Review

Very funny, and really quite a charming movie. By the end, the vampyroos have become quite sympathetic characters, especially the child, which has befriended a whole group of kids (much to dad's confusion). The vampire hunters are an inconsistent bunch, and the chases and fights get a little repetitive, but I seriously recommend this to any vampirologist with a sense of humor.

This movie has been strongly criticised as it 'fails to live up to Mr V - 1" - but it was made on a very small budget, and is really a very different kind of movie. Best not compare

Chinese movie; Subtitled in English.

Note: Chinese views of vampires are rather different from the western understanding. Go with the flow, see vampyroos, and don't worry too much ...
