Mister M's character arc and even certain scenes are stolen wholesale from Fright Night, which might be considered unethical it weren't for Wong Jing's long history of stealing ideas. These choices were likely made by the filmmakers to disguise the lack of budget and choreography, but really, they don't do a good job of doing that. The sets are distractingly spartan, and the make-up laughably applied. That the man continues to be involved with such transparent commercial tripe is either a testament to his salesmanship or the result of some unknown deal with an evil supernatural power. Second, there may be vampires in the building.

The dictionary is more exciting than the narrative of Dating a Vampire. Eric Alex Fong Lik-Sun and Cheun Sammy are two medical students who opt to rent a flat in a secluded housing estate, the reason being to concentrate on their upcoming exams. Unfortunately, this time they conspired to do it completely and totally wrong. Dating a Vampire compensates for its poor writing and low budget with stuff that's even worse.

Dating a Vampire is really that bad. Slow and completely lacking tension. If you've seen Wong Jing's earlier efforts, you'll know that it's possible. But after a series of weird noises and the appearance of a man bleeding from the neck, Eric thinks something may be up.

Dating a Vampire is an obvious retread of the classic stories that also inspired the Chinese Ghost Story films, but Wong Jing also copies other sources with the Mister M character. The film possesses some semi-creepy staging, but the utter cheapness of the production hurts matters considerably.

The acting is also inconsistent. Another cheap horror-comedy from the film industry that does it best. Director Clarence Fok also employs jerky step printing, unclear framing, and murky moving camera. But Jade is one of those insanely nice vampires, and doesn't want Eric to die. Considering Wong's prolific output even during these depressing Hong Kong Cinema days, I'm starting to believe it's the latter reason.

The latest front-runner for worst Hong Kong movie of the year. The biggest killer here is the action, or the lack thereof.

But Eric won't be rid of that easily, and decides to save Jade from her upcoming underworld marriage. Miki Yeung and Alex Fong are passable, but don't generate enough chemistry to make their Chinese Ghost Story-like plotline even remotely compelling. What's important is that the stolen idea somehow makes it into a semi-entertaining motion picture. Mister M is a charlatan occult expert who gets involved with real vampires, and is a direct lift of the Roddy MacDowell character from the film Fright Night.
