Storyline

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. He knows that a child had been born to a woman who had a vampire father, and he searches for her in Brooklyn. Rita's mother, who has died in an asylum, was that woman and Rita has nightmares that she does not understand. Not knowing that she is part vampire, Max woos her and attempts to bring her to her blood sucking destiny. Even though Rita has strange dreams and actions, Justice, her partner, has feelings for her and does not want her involved with this stranger Max. But it is Rita who must decide her destiny.

They all say-We don't know-Which way to go
9 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Unpleasant. Watching this movie was by no means the best part of my day. With a movie, you have the chance to tell a story in a way that shines in the darkness, literally shines in the darkness- don't believe me, turn off all the lights and watch a movie, is there not a lovely blue light? This movie bares meager light. Charlie Murphy gets two writing credits for this movie but his humor which is so obvious on the Chappelle Show, is not to be found in Vampire In Brooklyn. Billed as a horror/comedy the movie can deliver on neither. Wes Craven seems out of his element, handling Eddie Murphy and the movie's tone ineptly. Funny, this movie is an Eddie Murphy vehicle but the only time the movie works is when he's off screen.
