Awesome Bad Movies

Post by Sam Gamgee » Mon Jul 14, 2008 7:26 pm

So I just saw this really awesome bad movie, Mr. Vampire. Now, I remember seeing the opening scene on YouTube from somewhere, but I don't remember where I got the link from - it might have been this forum. No idea.

But what happens when you take martial arts and mix it with vampires - only CHINESE vampire? (creatures which have an... interesting... way of getting around...)

Awesome badness. Here's the first bit of the movie - start the clip around 2:30 to get the real good stuff.

Mr. Vampire is the definitive Chinese hopping vampire movie. I love it. (It is easy to avoid a Chinese vampire... just don't breath... ) :P

If you haven't seen it, look up Max Magician and the Legend of the Magic Rings. It is the best movie ever in that it is the worst movie ever! For a few examples, most of the over-dubbing is a split-second off, the props were all made in a redneck's basement, the movie was made completely seriously (as you can tell from the bonus features and commentary, and the director has made other movies at the same quality), and... crud... I can't remember the other thing I was going to say, but you all get the point. It has got to be one of my favorite movies!

If someone takes your cloak, do not stop him from taking your tunic. 30 Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back. 31 Do to others as you would have them do to you.
