Substandard - Even for 1991, 13 July 2003
Author: JesperT from Cape Town

Watching movies from 10-15 years ago always make them seem 'a bit slow' compared to contemporary movies - and this is definitely no exception.

It somehow reminds me "The Father Dowling Mysteries" with Tom Bosley from "Happy Days" as the plot could be taken directly out of a tv show: A new priest in LA has to stop a 'vampire-killer' on the loose (you'd almost think it was a spoof). In fact it would have done better as an episode of some low rated tv-crime series, because as a full length movie it just doesn't cut it.

The story is even supported by an awful soundtrack based on 1970s synthesizer sounds - but this is nothing compared to the acting which is close to appaling.

Erik Estrada is so bad that a polar bear only wearing a pair of sunglasses trying to get in to a 'penguins only'-golf club would be more convincing. Even 'easy' lines such as "What has this world come to" are recited with no feeling.

Kim Chambers is another 'great actress' from blockbuster hits such as "Karate Cop", and she puts in a similar great performance in this one...

The only positive aspect is that it was not Erik Estrada but Jim Brown doing the martial arts as I had feared after reading the movie info on cable.

In short: do not waste your time on this one. It belongs back in 1991 - and even back then I would have been disappointed.
