The Vampire Is Alive (1989)

Hong Kong,
35mm film, colour, 2.35:1
mono, English (dubbed)

A Hong Kong horror film directed by the almost certainly pseudonymous Edgar Jere. It is comprised of an old Thai action film edited into newly shot footage. The credits are all anglicised and almost certainly fake.
