The Legend Of The Seven Golden Vampires (UK/HK 1973)

Rating: ***
Alternate Title: The Seven Brothers Meet Dracula
Director: Roy Ward Baker
Martial Arts Choreography: Liu Chia Liang (Lau Kar Leung)
Cast: Peter Cushing, David Chiang, Julie Ege, Robin Stewart. Shih Szu

The classic Hammer/Shaw Brothers kung fu vampire movie featuring Peter Cushing as Professor Van Helsing who follows the charismatic David Chiang to a remote Chinese village to do some vampire busting. Pretty creepy stuff featuring some great kung fu, some pretty nifty vampire disintegrations, Hong Kong kick-ass cutie Shih Szu, and Julie Ege's heaving breasts. Watch the original if you get a chance - the American version was shortened by fifteen minutes, resulting in confusing continuity flaws.
