Anyway, this very mild film is played more for laughs than for chills and it begins with 6 adults struggling onto the beach after their ship has gone down. One of them looks familiar as she lays face down in the sand struggling for breath. As they turn her over, the indentation left in the sand leaves no doubt as to who it is - the Yipster - literally making an impression right from the start!
They find themselves on an island inhabited
only by little vampires and some ghoul stuck in a mud wall. Most of this
is pretty silly, but actually the little vampires hopping around in those
lovely blue mandarin costumes with white faces look pretty cool. In one
scene in which they camouflage themselves in green leaves is quite pictorially
stunning and could have been scary if that was the directors intent. For
some reason Amy Yip is not the focus of this movie and there are no great
Yipster moments in it after that initial impression on the beach !
My rating for this film: 6.0
