Vampire in Brooklyn (1995)

Eddie Murphy sucks.  Authentic horror director Wes Craven (NIGHTMARE
ON ELM STREET) tries in vane (vein?) to strike a balance between the
jugular and the funny bone.  He fails at almost every cross.  Eddie
sleepwalks through his undead performance as a Caribbean Count,
scouting the borough for his half-vampire mate (Angela Bassett, who
has seen stranger days).  The laughs are few, the set design is
lousy, and there isn't one single campy cameo to speak of.  Even John
Landis did better with his half-baked INNOCENT BLOOD.

Grade: D
