Eddie Murphy’s humor is contagious and Wes Craven’s signature like no one else’s, yet this film is not as enticing as it should be. The first reason is that, while it meets every aspect of the quintessential modern vampire tale, it’s also full of clichés. It is predictable and the story is over before it even started. The best thing about it is that it is a slapstick horror comedy; a rarity!
Vampire in Brooklyn should have been both scarier and funnier. Perhaps there were too many writers attached to this. Perhaps the planets simply didn’t align. There are good scares and good jokes, in here, but nothing to remember this film by. Eddie Murphy basically plays Dracula without effort or investment. It doesn’t suit him. Because he’s a big name, we're forced to side with him; the bad guy.
This is a real resume killer for him and everyone involved. Leave your moral values at the door. The three characters Murphy plays are assholes. They should make us wet our pants. Why aren’t they funny? Why is the most hilarious actor Kadeem Hardison? A new character; a cop, is introduced around the halfway mark. He puts the last nail in this coffin. He plays it straight and becomes the hero.
