"See it.. Its bloody cool."
4 stars

A vampire film? another one...YAAAAWWNN..

But hold on... this one kick the arse of virtually all of the others..

This film is a true horror film.

Creepy
funny
Purposely tongue in cheek
Original (Ok so maybe it aint all original)

Very well acted for a horror, Roddy MacDowell (RIP) is spectacular as an ex vampire hunter as a now tv presenter (A La Elvira) And Chris Sarandon is very effective as the guy wit da fangs.

What it lacks in originality it makes up for in abundance in style, laughs, and yes I did jump a few times.

A modern horror classic. With some shit hot make up FX to boot.
