When RoboCop Battled Zombie Vampires
Shoehorning white guys into existing Asian movies was not the exclusive province of ninja-riffic IFD Films & Arts. When producer Tomas Tang left IFD in the 1980s and formed his own company Filmark, he brought the formula with him. There he developed his own wacky flavor of cut-and-paste ninja movies and applied the technique to non-ninja fare as well. After the popularity of Golden Harvest’s comedy horror film “Mr. Vampire,” Tang added Chinese hopping vampires to his menu.
And since “RoboCop” was a big hit at the time as well, it only made sense to combine the two! Right?
