Synopsis

The brother of a local business baron is killed by a hopping corpse, a creature from Chinese jiangshi fiction. Chin and his disciple set to bury the corpse but their plans are foiled by Wu who allows the corpse to turn into a vampire. Meanwhile, Hsiao in a grave robbery attempt accidentally awakens a female corpse (Wong Siu Fung) who eventually turns out to be the Marshal's (Shum Wai) wife. During the commotion, Wu steals the vampire and sets it loose but is restrained by Chin who transports and hides the vampire in a hotel run by Wu Ma.
