    This movie was hilarious. Aside from all the swearing it was good.

    Personally, I wouldn't put this movie into the horror category, because I didn't find it scary at all. The movie was surprisingly funny, though and I really enjoyed Eddie Murphy's performance. The story itself wasn't bad and those of you, who have read Bram Stoker's Dracula, will actually notice some slight similarities, just in a completely different setting.

    I found this movie really funny. It's so cheezy that it's charming. This is perhaps the last movie I can remember Eddie Murphy being funny (aside from the Shrek movies.) Vampire in Brooklyn does not work as a horror at all. It tries to, but it doesn't. As a comedy on the other hand it really is fun, put a nice new perspective on an over done genre.

Overall: Vampire in Brooklyn is a an enjoyable movie if you don't take it seriously and are willing to ignore the mountain of mistakes it makes, they are minor and if taken in good humor also easy to ignore. Just don't expect a horror from this movie. Expand

    Neither all that scary nor all that hilarious, Vampire in Brooklyn falls directly between the two, into the valley of mediocrity.
  2. Like so many Eddie Murphy misfires, Vampire in Brooklyn has no idea how to capitalize on the actor's immense appeal. The film was directed by the horror master Wes Craven and it turns out to be an Eddie Murphy-Wes Craven movie that is not funny or scary. Now that's a nightmare.

    The movie is unpleasant to look at. It's darker than "Seven," but without sufficient purpose, and my overall memory of it is of people screaming in the shadows. To call this a comedy is a sign of optimism; to call it a comeback for Murphy is a sign of blind faith.
