First of all....I liked it. Now I don't mind saying right off that I don't like going to scary films....not because I am a wimp or live alone, but because I tend to scare easily. Now with this tendency to scare easily comes a higher pitched scream than I would care to have. Also, vampires tend to bother me (not on a daily basis or anything), but because recent films have shown vampires in a new light (or darkness depending upon your own personal perspective). Recent films have shown vampires to be in cahoots with the U.S. Government and various police agencies, but even more disturbing is that these films have been shooting down the myth that vampires can be warded off with the symbol of the cross or some garlic. So what is a law-abiding Vampire-avoiding American to do? I have no clue....I am just a movie reviewer. But I do know one thing, I enjoyed this film and thought James Woods was really pretty cool as a vampire killer and Thomas Ian Griffith was a neat looking vampire. This film has plenty of action and just the right amount of biting scenes. Bottom line....definitely go see it, but if you scare easily around vampires, don't worry just bring some GARLIC salt for your popcorn, CROSS your arms and legs, and keep the FAITH.

This gore filled movie is definately good, but not a see now. The story line is simple...a Master Vampire, who has existed for nearly 600 years is in search for the "black cross" in which to complete a ceremony. A hunter group under the authority of the Catholic church is sent to eliminate the master vampire. Unfortunately, his team are violently ripped apart by the Vamp, which infuriates head hunter James Woods. If you're looking for a nice, decently frightful movie, take a look at Vampires. Definately worth you're 5 bucks.

This movie sucked. The plot was screwed up and it was predictable. I usually like vampire movies, but this film left me wanting my money back. Don't go see this crappy film.

Well, I was supposed to see the waterboy, sold out. Then I asked about I still know what you did last summer - sold out. So we decided to go see vampires. This movie is absolutely terrible, the storyline seems long and boring. The music is bad, the acting is terrible, the only thing half way decent about this movie was the killings. The main "vampire slayer" played by some 50 year-old man whose parents got killed by vampires is the wrong guy to play this hardcore character. If you are into vampires and that sort of thing wait for video. If you are not, don't waste a penny on this film.

Not a bad movie but I liked "Blade" better.

"Vampires" has one good character and that's the vampire hunter, played by James Wood. The film is too bloody in a less entertaining film. This film lacks campy humor.
