John Carpenter‘s Vampires stars James Woods as the leader of a group of vampire hunters. This vampire movie gives us a great western feel from the New Mexico setting. The opening scene is great because there is an all out massacre and Woods is left to pick up the pieces.
A good vampire movie but there are some points that just leave you thinking this could have been better, not many but a few times. The settings are not jaw dropping because it is the desert most of time so the story really needed to be solid. I find myself watching this vampire film often so even though John Carpenter’s Vampires might have lacked some points, I still find it worthy of watching again.
