Bloody good fun - Vampires review by LC

Spoiler Alert
11/07/2020

Knowing this was a late-period Carpenter movie, I went into this with some trepidation, but it turned out to be a lot better than I was expecting. This is a goofy, gory and ultimately very silly action/horror film - no scares here, but plenty of demented entertainment. It's not an outright comedy, but definitely has its tongue in its cheek and is aware of how ridiculous it is, so it's tonally closer to something like 'Evil Dead 2' than a serious horror movie. Unlike a lot of knowingly cheesy B-movies however, this one actually looks to have a decent budget, and features some well directed action and gore scenes. James Woods has great fun hamming his way through the lead role (in a role that looks as though it was written for Kurt Russell) - the only slight disappointment is that Sheryl Lee doesn't get more to do. Certainly not a 'classic', but highly entertaining goofy fun.
