This was made for my Chinese language class
We were suppose to make a presentation on any cultural thing associated with china.
Because it is almost Halloween, I picked one of China's mythical monsters- their version of a vampire.

The subtitles may be off only because i added them last minute
hope you enjoy this short lesson on Chinese Vampires

NOte: I know I say "also" in the animation way too many times and probably many other words ....SHUSH... I was nervous so deal with it....

I'm glad I live in America, with the "how you become one" China must be crawling with them.

I used to think the post it note on their head was a decoration. :giggle: I didn't realize it contained a spell that warded it off.

Your voice is adorable--and so is this video--very informative.

I think there's one of those in the Dark Stalker games. I was always puzzled as to why she had a piece of paper on her face.

I am not sure, they generally sense you by your chi but stuff like holding your breath makes you invisible to them.

that's up to you. Usually they are human like because they were once human. But you can depict them with long tongues or arms if you wish.

Very good job! this is pretty comprehensive. It has many of the thing I learned in watching horror movies when I was younger.
I think there was a thing where you string together old coins in red string and power it with the light of a full moon. I just loved bits of rules and lore like that. My favorite example of the bell controlling thing is probably the taoist's troupe in one of the Mr. Vampire movie series.
Thanks so much for making this!!!

i've few questions regarding ancient Chinese mythology considering jianshi:..

1) do jianshi turn to dust in sun light like western vampires?!!
2) do jianshi have no reflection on mirrors like western vampires?!!
3) can they do kung fu although they are stiffed corpses ?!!
4) does the ticket on their forehead indicates that they are fully under control by someone (like wizard, summoner or priest)!!?, if it is, when do they regain their conscience & free will?!!
5) are there any good janshi (like kind) ones?!!

Haha; well it's been awhile and people are still adding new things of what Jianshi could be like. Just like how western vampires suddenly can sparkle and not burn.

For the most part I can answer 3 to 5, I'm actually not sure about 1 and 2.

In popular movies and beliefs, Jianshi are put in complete control when they have those yellow things on their head with special characters written on them with chicken blood. They are not in complete control if you just dab a bit of chicken blood on their forehead or just put a blank yellow paper on their head or with the wrong characters. However, incomplete papers or just chicken blood can stop the vampire from attacking you. Once the paper/chicken blood is gone, the vampire is free.

When they are under control, people would use bells to command their movements. Even using them to fight other controlled vampires in a game. So yes they can do kung fu.

And like old knowledge of western Vampires they were always consider to be bad because of the cause of becoming one in the first place.
