I know you're going, NOT another vampire movie. But THIS vampire is different. He's hungry and living in Brooklyn. NOT just ANY New Yorker. This vampire is Eddie Murphy--complete with goatee and some nifty special effects. ((VAMPIRE IN BROOKLYN/PARAMOUNT: NAT SOUND. HEY THERE. EASY, EASY BRO. NOW COME ON YOU. DON'T HAVE TO PULL THE BLACKULA ON ME. IF YOU'RE HUNGRY, I'LL RUN YOU DOWN TO KFC. DOWN THE STREET AND HIT YOU UP FOR THE TWO PIECE.))
Murphy plays Max, a vampire who is hungry to find the last of his kind in the Big Apple.
Kadeem Hardison or Julius, is Max's "ghoul" who keeps losing body parts.
Murphy's menu as a vampire includes an appetizer named Angela Bassett. Her dad was a vampire and now Murphy is putting the "NIBBLE" on her.
However, she doesn't realize she is half vampire. ((I CAN READ INTO YOU RITA. A WORLD WHERE NO ONE LAUGHS AT YOU. WHAT YOU FEEL, WHAT YOU SEE, WHAT YOU ARE.))
Some are calling "Vampire in Brooklyn" a comedy. Funny? It's not. I give it a "C+".
Not only does it lack comedy, but its certainly NOT scary enough to be a horror film. Guess you could say it needs MORE BITE!))
