* SternTeacher: It's easy to see why Uncle Kau can be a cranky guy who comes down hard on his students, considering his two students are constantly goofing off, screwing up on the job, getting him injured in some of their pranks, and generally being TooDumbToLive by getting themselves either possessed by ghosts or turned into a vampire.

It's a wonder he doesn't turn full SadistTeacher on the two.

''Mr. Vampire'' (Also known as ''Hold your breath for a moment'') is a 1985 Hong Kong supernatural horror comedy directed by Ricky Lau and produced by Sammo Hung. It was notable for helping the supernatural/vampire genre into the whole Asian Film Industry. The film was an immediate success and was followed by three sequels, a 1992 remake (with Hung producing again) and several spin-offs.

Taoist priest Kau (Lam Ching Ying) is asked by rich businessman Yam to organize a reburial for Yam's father to prevent his corpse from coming back to live as a ''geung-si'' (or simply a ChineseVampire). However, things go wrong as expected and the corpse comes alive and creates havoc in the village.
