    Vampire in Brooklyn
    Comedian Eddie Murphy tried something different with this 1995 film that he produced and co-wrote, enlisting veteran horror director Wes Craven to give the story some chills. The uneven comedy-horror tale features Murphy as a vampire named Maximillian who arrives in Brooklyn on a ship full of people who have been brutally murdered. One of the corpses on board closely resembles that of Rita (Angela Bassett), one of the detectives assigned to the case. Maximillian targets Rita, hoping to get a dance with her that will bring her under his control. He enlists the help of a worker named Julius (Kadeem Hardison), biting his neck and turning him into a slowly decaying ghoul. Also seeking to romance Rita, though in a less sinister way, is her longtime detective partner Justice (Allen Payne). Maximillian uses his supernatural powers to interfere with the budding romance. Murphy also plays a preacher and an Italian gangster in this bizarre film. ~ Michael Betzold, Rovi

      Somethings need to stay out of the hood


      Okay take away the fact this movie was to be made from Brooklyn, but filmed on Hollywood lot. Okay you even take away the fact this movie shouldn't have been anyway, but it was and its not all that bad. Hey be happy its a step up from Blacula.

      It is a different take on Vampires and Eddie Murphy does a great job in this comedy. Part of it is meant to be intense but you can't stop laughing in this classic
