I'm a fan of Kevin Dillion and I thought this was actually pretty good. Worth a watch if you are a vampire fan.

"When loser cop (Kevin Dillon), is assigned to investigate the disappearance of a missing co-ed, he unwittingly bites off more than he can chew -literally- when the missing co-ed turns out to be a vampire fledgling.
Some elements of this film were cool. For instance, the vampire co-ed, and her friend, and the vampires henchmen were good-looking and well done. But some parts were just annoyingly bad. For instance: I hated the main hero. He was such a loser. I don't think he changed his t-shirt once during the entire film. He was such an alcoholic I was quite frankly surprised he didn't see vampires ALL the time. And the master vampire looked like a bad extra from Buffy.
One of the few things I DID like about the film was the ending...
Two stars for a sub-average vampire flick with a few good points. This film could've been saved with a better-written and more empathetic protagonist."

This is an OK movie on a bad day I have even called it lame. Having just seen the movie on SCI-FI this weekend made me revisit my way too hard opinion of this movie. Oh trust me it is still not a master work of vampire fiction to say the least but, I have seen much worse than this. Dracula 3000 springs immediately to mind. Compared to Dracula 3000, this Vampires - Out for Blood (Widescreen Edition) DVD is Oscar Worthy high art.
This vampire story has a well developed plot more than I can say about some really bad DVD's. I do not know how they managed it but ever one of the characters in this movie has a flakey aspect to their on screen persona that makes them feel unreal at best or slightly unhinged at worse. The fact that all the people in the DVD come across as slightly cracked bothered me at first because, it made the process of suspending logic to get into the movie more of a chore.
Seeing the movie this weekend taught me I was taking the movie too seriously. This movie is not one of those "Serious Vampire Thrillers". There is a very subtle well executed vein of comedy running throughout this movie for those sensitive enough to the human condition to detect it. Granted the weirdest humor in this movie is so slight it is barely discernable, it took me three viewings to catch the hidden humor in this film but it is for sure there.
Yes the cop hunting the vampires was an amazing lush. His ex-wife was played to ditzy California perfection from the very beginning of the film to its end. The king of the Vampires was a special effect that only the Irwin Allen super elastic bubble plastic monster designers guild could be proud of. I kind of liked the main character in the movie exactly because he was imperfect and sort of tragic in so many ways. The ending of this movie was particularly hilarious and I would not dare spoil it for you chaps here. Taken as a humorous but frightening flick this DVD deserves 3 to three and a half stars.
A more realistic king of the vampire's tighter more believable character development and in some cases slightly better writing would have made this a pretty good vampire movie. The core storyline was awesome it just was not carried out well as it could have been. All things considered it is NOT a bad DVD at all. Now that I have experienced some really bad Vampire movies I have revised my rating on this one to 3 well deserved stars. Is this the best vampire movie NO, but on a day when you just want to watch something mildly funny and scary this DVD fits the need to a T. I might be adding this DVD to my collection soon; it is way pricey for a merely average B-Movie but seeing how subtly funny this thing this past weekend has pushed me towards buying a copy before it goes out of print.

"After looking at some of the other reviews posted here, I wondered what do people really expect from a b-movie? B-movies are supposed to be fun and sometimes campy. But it seems some take things a little too seriously when it comes to a b-movie.
Being a vampire film, Vampires--Out For Blood immeadiately sets it boundaries around basic vampires lore...no relections, fear of the sun, stakes, etc. and proceeds into a typical tale of a guy mistakenly left alive after a vampire attack only to begin the transformation. There is nothing new in this movie, but it's all done with a sence of fun and energy. Lance Hendricksen turns in a very good preformance as the police captain.
Nothing ever really gets scary and it all seems to have been made tongue-in-cheek.
A fun b-movie romp that does just what a movie should do of this type: entertain
