Shaolin vs. Evil Dead was not that great, it was no where near the annoying confusion that was it's sequel but still not worth watching unless you, like me; can't NOT watch horrible movies. The movie starts off with Chia Hui Liu in a larger role, which is already an improvement from the sequel. He and assistants are cleaning the land of (leading home?) zombies. As a side note lots of places I have looked this movie up, refer to them as vampires. I'm gonna say that might have been a translating error. These are the walking dead, or er the hopping dead. Jiang Shi might also be considered vampires in today's times but since the movie took place in older times, before western influence; I'm calling them zombies. They are definitely Jiang Shi because they use chicken eggs to repel them. But having said that its the only part of the movie I found interesting. The zombie make up was decent, the acting subpar, the plot a confusion and it ends on a cliffhanger. The sequel goes back and tells the story of how Chia Hui Liu became leader of the clan and the clans son was kicked out. Then after that long exposition goes back to the end of this movie. Not that it will make sense anyway.
