Vampire in Brooklyn (1995)

Never thought Wes Craven would try his hand in the horror comedy world let alone see Eddie Murphy and Wes Craven team up. I am glad they did because Vampire in Brooklyn is a different horror comedy. Not particularly a good horror comedy but a film that grows on you.

Eddie Murphy plays Maximillian, a vampire who changes into various characters and it seems like mini skits that sometimes are hilariously funny and others that are over the top. Maximillian is the lone vampire from his Caribbean island who has come to Brooklyn to win over a new mate to continue the vampire race. He finds half-vampire (Dhampir) detective Rita Veder (Angela Bassett) and he tries his hardest to get her to become his mate. Allen Payne plays Detective Justice and this kicks off an interesting love triangle.

The special effects are good and the acting are okay most of the time. I personally liked the movie but I am also a Wes Craven/Eddie Murphy fan but putting that aside, this film is less than average.

This horror comedy does not have much replay value but some may like to do so, not a film for everyone.


Maximillian is the only survivor from a race of vampires on a Caribbean Island, and as a vampire, he must find a mate to keep the line from ending...
