The Chinese vampire, the kyonsi (or spelling variants thereof), has perhaps had a lamentable un-life in films. For every classic film such as Mr Vampire there are rather more that are lower quality. The figure itself can attract ridicule, the hopping motion the vampire makes can attract derision and the Chinese lore can be misunderstood by Western audiences – but it should, ultimately, be a creature of horror not comedy. It is perhaps little wonder that some Chinese filmmakers have moved to a more Western style vampire.
