Hammer Films' slow moving horror and squirming nubiles combined with Shaw Studios' brisk martial arts melees. It's an odd and marginally successful combination; often awkward, but with personable stars. Especially funny watching some of the Chinese vampires half-hopping about; apparently they had played Chinese hopping vampires and had a little trouble adapting to the European style. Or maybe it was intentional.
