Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: «A screenwriter (Joyce) and her assistant (Cindy) go on a retreat to an isolated house in order to finish a script about the Last Emperor of China. As soon as they arrive, they are greeted by a Taoist priest that warns them that evil spirits are afoot. This becomes obvious when their driver is strangled by a disconnected phone cord. The film's producer (Lawrence) suspects foul play, as several other companies are preparing projects on the same (apparently hot) topic. ... The Vampire is Alive is one wacky film, even by the standards set other slap-dash Asian horror efforts of the period. Not overly gory (or even very bloody), it does offer some hilarious off-the-wall antics, and is made fairly unique by it's casting of mainly Caucasian actors and actresses, which begs a question of the script: are they supposed to be Americans, filming in China? Unless I missed something, it's never mentioned. Best not to worry, just sit back with some cold ones and enjoy the hopping bloodsuckers, mild cannibalism, a ninja, and an appearance by an iconic late 80's sci-fi character that will have your head spinning for the remaining duration of the film. Not the best the genre has to offer (and that's being charitable), but worth a passing glance anyway».
