    The sort of thing you can't believe anyone would want their name attached to.
  2. Ridiculous without being awful enough to be hilarious.
  3. It's just as well that John Carpenter makes horror movies, because here's a horrifying thought picture James Woods as an action hero. [30 October 1998, p. 44]
  4. 25
    Anemic. [30 October 1998, p.8E]

    Terrible acting. Terrible Dialogue. Terrible story. Terrible effects/pyrotechnics. Terrible makeup. Terrible characters. This movie is a Turd-Sandwich.

    Only thing I enjoyed is how the hunters dispose of the vampires....by hooking them up to a truck and dragging them outside into the sunlight. I thought that was a clever idea and nice addition to the Vampire genre. The rest of the movie sucked. Pun intended.

    Just crap. Carpenter really lost it this time? The movie's a disaster.
