Back in the 90's, Eddie Murphy's career was already not in a really good shape (16 years later the situtation is not much better, I must say...). Anyway, back then, he made this vampire movie with Wes Craven, one of the great horror masters. At least, we have to give Murphy some credit for trying something different. Unfortunately, the end-result was rather disappointing. Indeed, they try to combi... read more

You know, if they would have chosen a path – dark comedy or serious vampire story – and stuck with it instead of merging the two into this hodge-podge unsettled mess we could have had something here. But the behind the scenes politics of filmmaking lead to a less than stellar product. Ain’t that always the way it goes down?

Eddie Murphy, the poster boy for lazy choices and easy money, was once viewed as a daringly original and edgy comedian. One didn’t know where his comedy would lead us, and frequently it led to projects like Raw or his time on SNL. Classic stuff, but then the 80s started to come to a close and Murphy decided that he was only interested in being a likable and bankable movie star and didn’t feel like putting in much time or effort to make a worthy proje” read more

“Eddie Murphy was funny back in the 80's, but from the 1990's onward forget it. Everything with his name on it seems to turn into a flop even before the release of it. Vampire In Brooklyn is Eddie's take on a vampire flick, there are some funny parts but overall it is a waist of time. I was dissapointed at the fact that Angela Bassett signed up for this movie, same as Wes Craven to Direct. The whole movie is just silly, and not worth any attention.” read more
