Mr. Vampire 1992, also known as Chinese Vampire Story, is a 1992 Hong Kong comedy horror film directed by Ricky Lau. The film is the fifth of a series of five films directed by Ricky Lau in the Mr. Vampire franchise. The Chinese title of the film literally translates to New Mr. Vampire.
Mr. Vampire 1992 is considered to be the true sequel to the original 1985 Mr. Vampire, as the main cast (Lam Ching-ying, Ricky Hui and Chin Siu-ho) in the first film reprised their roles. Mr. Vampire 1992 is also set directly after the events in Mr. Vampire, with some references to the first film, such as Man-choi commenting on how he felt after being infected with the "vampire virus". New characters were introduced in Mr. Vampire 1992, and some actors from the first film, such as Billy Lau, were recast in new roles.
The film is based on the concept of the souls of aborted fetuses who reside in statues awaiting reincarnation. One of these is a particularly nasty soul who possesses a nanny who in turn sets to work to find the suitable host pregnant lady which turns out to be Priest Kau's childhood sweet heart (who is married to the General).
