Jiangshi are often referred to as Chinese “hopping” vampires or zombies. Literally meaning “stiff corpse,” jiangshi were dressed in garments from the Qing Dynasty. They hopped around with their arms outstretched, killing living creatures by absorbing their life force – qi. Hong Kong films in the 1980s and 1990s gave these creatures of Chinese folklore a life of their own, and many different genres of movies (horror, martial arts, and even comedic) involved jiangshi.

Jiangshi stories come from Chinese folklore of unattended corpses of family members that were separated from their families. In order to bring back that deceased family member, Taoist priests were brought in to resurrect the corpse to “hop” its way home.
