REIGEN DOUSHI (れいげん・どうし) @FilmBar

I host these monthly events ("Tokusatsu Theater") that focus on vintage Asian pop-culture, old-school Japanese science fiction and sometimes Chinese martial arts. Here's what's planned for the 15th......

Known in Japan as REIGEN DOUSHI (れいげん.どうし), in Hong Kong as GOENGSI SIN SANG (僵尸先生), in Taiwan as JIANGSHI XIANSHENG (僵屍先生), and in Vietnam as TIEN SU BAT MA, this classic horror/comedy broke grounds all over Asia, during its successful 1986 theatrical releases. Known in the West as MR. VAMPIRE, it combines martial arts, romance, and slapstick comedy. MR. VAMPIRE singlehandedly created a whole new genre, in one fell-swoop!
The feature-length movie screens (as part of the on-going "Tokusatsu Theater") at FilmBar on Thursday, November 15th at 8:00 p.m. Film historian Damon Foster offers a scholarly look at the "Chinese Vampire" genre (dating back to 1600s folklore in Hunan Province). All this plus an episode of Japan's delightfully-cheesy BIOMAN (nine years before American hybrids like "Power Rangers") from 1984!

All in all, an action-packed two hours!

With my black clothes and shaved head, I'm not hard to spot.  Just come up and say 'hi' (or 'konbanwa').

    If you check this page before you go, you will know who is going to be there. At the Flimbar, there is a bar area to sit around. You can look for them there. They serve beer, wine or soda at the bar and you can bring them to the theater. No food except popcorn.
