The star of numerous horror-comedies such as Mr. Vampire, Lam Ching-ying steps behind the camera to direct and star in one of the better films in the genre. The famed One Eyebrow Priest and his disciples must save a group of villagers from the clutches of the undead when a swarm of bats descends on the berg. The flying harbingers of death poisoned the town's drinking water. While One Eyebrow ventures off to find another spring, the bats intentionally get him lost. Meanwhile, the townspeople discover the body of an evil Caucasian vampire who immediately springs to life and starts sucking the life force out of one and all. When traditional Eastern methods fail to stop the carnage, the villagers turn to Catholicism and a tamed infant vampire to bale them out of their trouble.
