BEATS in association with the Fighting Spirit Film Festival, and supported by the Chinese Visual Festival, is proud to present a special Halloween screening of Mr Vampire. Originally introduced to British audiences by Jonathon Ross as part of Channel 4's Chinese Ghost Story season, this comedy-horror film is a cult classic, and sparked a wave of vampire films in Hong Kong after it's release in 1985. Starring several established Hong Kong names such as Lam Ching Ying, Yuen Wah, Chan Siu Ho, and Moon Lee, the film follows a Taoist Priest and his two disciples, who are hired to oversee the reburial of an aristocrat. However things go awry when the corpse turns into a bloodthirsty vampire. We are inviting the audience to come in Halloween costume, or better still, Mr Vampire inspired cosplay. There will be prizes for best in show! Don’t forget the celebration continues post screening at the bar.
