This amusing hodgepodge from director Billy Chan was the first of the Asian variants, an exceedingly strange blend of the original's themes with the native Hong Kong strain of vampire comedy best typified by the popular Mr. Vampire and its sequels. The story gets underway as a young man (Sam Christopher Chan) and a Taoist master (Lam Ching-Ying) accompany the coffin of the man's great-grandfather on an airplane taking it home to Hong Kong for a proper burial. The plane crashes in Africa, leaving the man and his master stranded on the plains. Somehow, they lose Grandpa (Peter Chan) -- who happens to be a vampire -- and wander around Africa for a long time during which the Taoist master gets to showboat in some funny scenes, doing things like riding an ostrich and trying to foil an angry rhinoceros with a magic spell. Eventually, they run into N!xau and his tribe, track down Grandpa, and try to go home. Unfortunately, some ruthless diamond hunters delay their departure by taking N!xau's tribe hostage, leading to a wild conclusion featuring magical spells, martial arts, the hopping vampire, a giant zombie, and the Taoist master helping N!xau by having him possessed by the ghost of Bruce Lee. ...» (Robert Firsching).
