John Carpenter’s ‘Vampires’ (1998) – Film Review
Is it Vampires or is it John Carpenter’s Vampires? I think actually it’s just Vampires but I can’t help but but introduce this film as ‘John Carpenter’s…’. It sounds right.
Anyway I got the idea of watching it after seeing it advertised on the Horror Channel. My boyfriend and I love watching films of shall we say, occasional ‘kitsch’ value and though I didn’t doubt AT ALL that I’d enjoy Vampires on a real horror appreciating level, I can’t pretend the lure of James Woods playing a master vampire slayer named JACK CROW in a potentially corny Carpenter movie didn’t appeal too. Because it did.
I enjoyed it a lot! More than I thought I would and refreshing is the word. FUN is yet another. Though Vampires was released in 1998 (I was twelve) it definitely has more retro film vibes…
