Followed up by Sympathy for Mr Vampire and Lady Vampire?

Haha!

Have you seen any of the Mr. Vampire series, Carl? The first one is essential viewing.

Havent seen any of of them yet but with a title like that.. only a matter of realizing it exists. I grabbed the 100 Years of Horror series today, its got over 11hrs on it so it should be awesomeness with Christopher Lee presenting.

...do you dare tread upon the staircase?
