Great elements add up to nothing
18 November 2007 | by (the wild frontier) – See all my reviews

John Landis should consider himself lucky that his three or four great movies just barely outweigh his million or so mediocre ones. His vampire movie has exactly one high point. It is the scene where Robert Loggia wakes up in the morgue, having been transformed into a vampire, and goes running past the press reporting on his death, with a morgue attendant and a security guard chasing him. That was pretty funny. He then shows up at his lawyer's house looking revolting (big props to the makeup department) trying to figure out why he's craving blood. Landis was going places here: any comedy scene involving a guy recently turned into a monster is gold, in my opinion. If you want to see that concept milked for all its worth, there's no better example than "Men in Black," which achieved some sort of cosmic perfection with the Vincent D'Onofrio character.

Unfortunately, the potential of these scenes is lost when they pass too quickly, and the rest of the movie is simply boring. Loggia starts turning his employees into vampires one by one in a tedious fashion, and it doesn't build up to anything memorable. It would have been better if the mob family got turned into vampires at the beginning and we watched the action develop from THERE. Instead, this whole thing is like a prequel to a better movie. The jazzy score makes it sound like we should be watching a frenetic action comedy like ¨The Blues Brothers," but we're not. Same thing with the slew of cameos and Landis's standard closing credits sequence with the actor's name over his or her image. The only thing that makes this more notable than the average vampire movie is the sizzling sex scene, but that also goes by too fast. This movie gets an A for the outline and a C- for the final draft.
