If there's something strange in your neighborhood, who you gonna call? "Vampire Cleanup Department!" OK, it doesn't quite roll off the tongue, but the VCD has been at war ever since the fanged undead arrived in Hong Kong. Now they're welcoming their newest team member, Tim Cheung, born to a bitten mother and therefore immune to a vampire's venom. He joins uncles Chung and Chau, Maoshan Taoist Ginger, weapons expert Kui, and Manager M just in time for the emergence of the blood moon, when the hopping vampires are in full force. But as a great evil casts a dark shadow over Hong Kong, Tim must keep a secret from the VCD: He has fallen in love with a female vampire with whom he has an inexplicable telepathic connection, keeping her in his small apartment and teaching her how to re-acclimate to human life. Broad, youthful, and equal parts "Mr. Vampire" and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (the hopping vampires essentially get "dusted"), Vampire Cleanup Department is an epic, and epically funny, entry into the jiangshi genre.
