This film was put together very well for what it was. It delivers all that it promises. Nothing more, and nothing less. This is not a movie to be analyze in order to try to find meaning. It is purely to allow you to forget that reality exists for an hour and a half.
If you know your vampire lore, or at least your vampires movies, you will LOL. Some of the references are rather obvious, but there are a few that are harder to spot. There are also a homage to a past horror parody. :P This is probably one of the funnier comedies I've seen lately. The nice thing with this film is that it is a pure comedy, as opposed to the ever popular romantic comedy. The plot is executed very well. The effort put into the background and stunts is apparent. There is a seriousness in some of the characters and events that enhances the comedic aspect of the movie, which makes for a good laugh fest.
By the way, I do not work in the film industry, nor am I a professional critic or know a professional critic. Just in case anyone was wondering.
