Vampires (1998) Review:

This vampire film, by horror mastermind John Carpenter, is a great blend of horror, action, and adventure.

The story is well written and the post-apocalyptic universe very complete and well-explained. The backstory of the original vampire brings a little sci-fi touch that makes the story even greater. There is also some good gore and some crazy bad-ass characters. For once you really get to like the good guys and dislike the bad ones, making the viewer live through the hero’s crusade as if your life was at stake.

What I especially enjoy Vampires is its realism. Whereas in most horror, heroes are able to slay dozens of vampires at a time, here it is very differently pasted. Vampires are here tough cookies who fight hard and are very resistant. The slayers, despite being highly trained, can only kill one at the time, which gives a fascinating balance to the film.


Of course, it has some slow moments and starts to look a little old as compared to similar vampire’s flicks such as 30 Days Later or Daybreakers. But as for Near Dark or Lost Boys, it has a very particular atmosphere that makes it unique.
