Podcast on Fire 85: Vampire Season #3 – Mr. Vampire III (1987) & Mr. Vampire Saga 4 (1988)

The ‘Vampire Season’ is growing legs and so was the Hong Kong vampire genre as you’ll find out as Stoo and Ken go in depth on Mr. Vampire III (that took a dark turn) and Mr. Vampire Saga 4 (that took an unexpected casting turn). Note that at the 53 minute 40 second mark there is a stoppage in audio as Ken talks of Loletta Lee and it’ll pick up as he speaks about Chin Kar-lok. This is due to a piece of small audio being lost during recording. Sorry about that.
