John Carpenter's Vampires Review


A vengeful vampire slayer must retrieve an ancient Catholic relic that, should it be acquired by vampires, will allow them to endure sunlight.

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.
