THE VAMPIRE IS ALIVE / Filmark International Ltd. - 1989

Welcome to Friday Night Drive-In with Tabonga, here at The Dungeon!.. Tonite's feature is from Hong Kong and is also known as COUNTER DESTROYER or THE VAMPIRE IS STILL ALIVE.

The story's about a screenwriter who moves to a remote old house so she can work on a script, but winds up being terrorized by a freaky demon spirit with a Freddy Kruger blade-fingered glove. Then, there's a gang of nasty criminals that get involved, it has some gore and several wild martial arts fight scenes. Add a pair of hopping vampire slaves and a third-rate RoboCop clone at the end, and you gots yerself a full 90 minutes of mindless fun!

The music's great, it's by James Langton, this is his only film credit!

It looks like our lil' fuzzy freek and Dungeon helper, Ralphie The Tarantula, is ready to push the big red 'GO' button once again, to start our Eariffic Earclip! Hit the button, Ralphie... Here's!.. THE VAMPIRE IS ALIVE!

Nothing better for inspiration for a writer than to move into a nice haunted house! But, I wonder, will she ever have time to write?..

Interesting example of eyes peering from behind a painting!

Man, they don't screw around in Hong Kong!!

It doesn't take long for the new place to get haunted, and seems to make girlie all horny and what-not!

Now, that's how Tabonga likes to read a book!

We are suckers for classic cars, here at The Dungeon.

Two wild and crazy criminal dudeskis!..

Goes to show, no matter what horrible disease you just died from, you look like a classy guy if you're wearing a watch!

The night life in Hong Kong is twelfth to none!

Okay... Fight!!

It's amazing but the little white guy holds his own against Goliath, there!

Examples of feminine mystique erotica...

It started out as some innocent role playing, but it soon turned into a night of rough sex!

You can hear some of the crazy car chases in the soundclip. Looks like the van in the top still was hit by a ray from GAOS!

The action is relocated onboard a yacht, for a little change of pace.

Girlie has completely turned into another Freddy Freak and is now having a little too much fun!

Here's ROWBOAT COP, ready to kick some boo-tay!

The hopping vampires come across unconscious girlie. A moment later her stomach starts inflating, which freaks them out!

Ghoulnight Everbloody!!..
