(3 out of 5 stars)

"Come now...How can you not like a horror movie which features the talents of Karen Black, Ami Dolenz, Peter DeLuise, and Garret Morris? Well I suppose you can hate it but I actually thought it wasn't that bad and had one very genuinely creepy scene.

Set in a small town called Allburg, two girls Lucy (Dolenz) and Cindy (Maya McLaughlin) visit an old abandoned church. A creepy looking old gothic cathedral. The legend goes that you can actuall swim in an old crypt beneath the church so the girls give it a try. Well, Cindy loses her crucifix as it floats to the bottom of the crypt and awakens a vampire from his sleep and he immediately kills her while Lucy escapes.

Meanwhile a former priest (DeLuise) has heard the legends of the vampires and comes to Allburg to invesigate and runs into Lucy as she is escaping from the vampire. The pair along with the town drunk, (Garret Morris) have to find a way from stopping the vampire from spreading is bite as already dozens of townspeople have been turned into vampires themselves. One of those, played by Karen Black, is imprisoned in the house of another priest who she constantly torments with her taunts and screams.

The acting is nothig to write home about. Black and Morris are both way over the top, but in kind of a fun and b-movie way. The scene in the old gothic church was quite creepy although why ANYONE would ever want to go swim in a mold invested crypt is beyone me. For a change the vampire isn't some sauve, GQ pretty boy but a rather decrepit, pasty faced, demonic looking thing.

Children of the night was no classic but you could do much worse."
No complaints...

"The movie itself is questionable on its acting and quality but still something to watch with friends for a unique laugh with interesting comedy (well its funny to us) horror."

"Not the best of vampire movies but not the worst kind of vampire movies. It adds a couple of nmew twists to Vampire mythology."
