Ricky Lau’s genre bending horror-comedy Mr. Vampire is making its worldwide debut on Blu-ray on July 20th as part of the Eureka Classics range.
Presented from a brand new 2K restoration, the film comes with a selection of extras and the first print-run of 2000 copies will feature a Limited Edition O-Card Slipcase and Collector’s Booklet.
One of the most genre-defining horror-comedies imaginable, and one of the key Hong Kong blockbuster hits of the 1980s, the popularity and influence of Mr. Vampire cannot be overstated.
Spawning at least four sequels and countless spin-offs and imitations, this Hong Kong horror-comedy to end them all was an understandable crowd-pleasing sensation, and triggered a wave of jiangshi (“hopping vampire”) movies.
Produced by the legendary Sammo Hung, the original Mr. Vampire is essential viewing for anyone interested in the 80s golden age of Hong Kong cinema.
