Release date: 1987
Hong Kong movies can be a strange old melting pot of lore at times. Take Vampire’s Breakfast, or Ling Chen Wan Can as it was known domestically... Set with a backdrop of a reporter Fat Piao (Kent Cheng) investigating a series of strange murders it introduces a Western type set of lore and then spins it around towards the end into something much more unusual.

All in all I found this a solid piece of Hong Kong cinema. The vampire reminded me of something that Dan Curtis might have dreamed up a decade earlier, with the blue decaying visage. Kent Cheng is possibly not as personable as some of the better known stars we have seen in Hong Kong Vampire movies but he is still rather good and I think the word solid is probably the best descriptor I could come up with for the film. 5.5 out of 10.
