Tagline: Sleep all day. Party all night. Never grow old. Never die. It's fun to be a vampire.
Plot: After moving to a new town, two brothers are convinced that the area is frequented by vampires.
My rating: 6.5/10
Will I watch it again? Nope.
I saw this way back when and it was OK. Maybe if this caught me a few years earlier at age 14 I would have different feelings about it. It's still just OK. It's more style over substance with a bunch of pretty people looking pretty and living dangerously. Grandpa (Hughes) is hilarious and I dig the carnival atmosphere. The vampire gang lead by Sutherland got on my nerves. They dress like what Hollywood thinks punks look like which is mostly idiotic. It's also a film that's clearly a product of its time with the music, hair and so on. There's some fun here and there which goes a long way in keeping this entertaining but there's also some meh every once in a while. The Warner Bros. snapcase DVD has a flipper disc with the fullscreen version on one side and the non-anamorphic widescreen version on the other. The only extras are text only and the anamorphic widescreen theatrical trailer. I'm sure there's a newer version that's better in every way.
