A decent late 90s horror film. Carpenter had some problems during the 90s and none of his films released during that decade did too well at the Box Office. Vampires is flawed, but remains entertaining. The largest problem is that it makes a number of changes from the novel that seem kind of cliched almost.

This is a truly fun Vampire flick. At the time of its' release, I took my girlfriend (who HATED horror films, but thought vampires were kind of sexy) and she LOVED it. It is almost more of an action film than a horror film. It also created a mythos for a series (and there were some, not-as-great-but-still-good-sequels to this film). All Vampire fans should see this film at least once. As I said, it is funny, there are a couple of "jumps," and it is action packed!

An overlooked gem from Carpenter
C. Sawin | TX | 11/01/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"It's safe to say that this is a guilty pleasure of mine. I love most of John Carpenter's work and I really enjoyed his take on vampires. Jack Crow is certainly reason alone to sit through this and although the character originated in John Steakley's novel, I feel Crow is just as strong of a character in Carpenter's world as Snake Plissken from Escape From New York.

Other than Jack Crow, I actually really enjoyed the storyline which seemed to be a breaking point for a lot of people. A vampire seeking a black cross to finish a reverse exorcism, so he can walk in daylight without turning to dust. Only Carpenter could pull something like that off. Their methods of killing vampires were also a bit more original and unorthodox compared to other vampire films of the past. Jack Crow would shoot an arrow from a crossbow, which would be attached to a wire on the bottom of a jeep that would be reeled in by Daniel Baldwin's Anthony Montoya that would drag the vampire into the sunlight where their body would burst into flames. Maybe it's considered cheesy to some, but it was refreshing to see something different for a change.

John Carpenter, the master of horror, delivers a refreshing and interesting take on vampires with the aptly named Vampires. It also dawns another strong lead character in a Carpenter film in the form of Jack Crow and contains some of the most witty and enjoyable dialogue of any horror film from the late '90s. The storyline is also magnificently peculiar, which is a definite plus in my book."
