"V" Word, The (2006)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Ernest Dickerson directs this third entry of season 2 from Masters of Horror. Two teens go to a funeral home to see the dead body of a guy who use to pick on them but they get more than they bargained for when a vampire shows up. As with other episodes, this one here contains a lot of gore, which will please horror fans but the first half also offers some great atmosphere. The opening takes place inside the funeral home and the director is able to use it to great effect. However, once the vampire stuff kicks in the film gets rather lazy and it really doesn't offer us anything we haven't seen before. The performances are good and the music score is also nice. There's a couple nice homages to Bela Lugosi and other horror films.
