Unacceptable use of the word "prequel"

From Netflix's description of 1989's Vampire vs. Vampire:

Ching-Ying Lam directs and stars in this weird mélange of martial arts, horror and comedy. Ying reprises his role as the sorcerer from this film's prequel, [1985's] Mr. Vampire. This time around, he must protect a village when townspeople dig up a vicious vampire (in tandem with a vampire baby he's been harboring in secret!).

It's only a prequel if it comes out after the movie that it takes place before. Rocky isn't the prequel to Rocky II.
