Mr. Vampire III

This 1987 film is the third in director Ricky Lau's horror/comedy series. Aside from director and general theme, the films have nothing to do with one another. This one features Richard Ng (Wheels on Meals) playing a con man posing as a Taoist priest and using a couple of harmless ghosts to bilk folks out of their money. When his ectoplasmic pals get possessed by the evil Devil Lady, our shyster must team up with a real priest (Ching-Ying Lam--90 films and counting) and a martial arts master to defeat the evil woman's seemingly inexhaustible supply of vampires, zombies, bats and maggots. Wildly imaginative and filled with hilarious/icky set-pieces. In Cantonese with English subtitles. 89 minutes
