Film: Mr. Vampire

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 succes 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 Chinese Vampire). However, things go wrong as expected and the corpse comes alive and creates havoc in the village.
