Editorial Reviews

Los Angeles has a discreet community of tortured, bloodthirsty creatures of the night. But when a mysterious vampire enters the scene. The Count wants this blood-sucking seductress eliminated before her rampage of death exposes the cult. Her only chance at immortality lies in the fangs of Dallas. But when a distraught mortal Dr. Frederick van Helsing seeks revenge on the vampires that damned his son, he vows to kill them all slowly. Together with a hip urban band of vampire hunters, Dr. Van Helsing declares war on the underground church of damnation.

Format: DVD
Modern Vampires brought standing ovations at the Fantasia Film Festival this summer and was voted the "audience favorite" award out of ninety selections. It also had the largest number of walkouts. It isn't every day that a film grabs people so viscerally (and I just purchased my DVD, which has great behind-the-scenes commentary, etc.). Modern Vampires is definitely not for right-wing Puritans, left-wing Political Correct Police, or drooling Beavis and Butthead types who just want to see bosoms and gore - although this film has it's share of that. This movie is a marvelous satire on society, with something to offend almost everybody. It also has a touching love story between Casper Van Dien and Natasha Gregson Wagner with a Pygmalion twist, kind of a "My Fair Vampire" tale. The self rightous Van Helsing (mighty Rod Stieger) and his crew of streetwise gangbangers (lead by the amazing Gabriel Casseus) sends this well crafted plot into high gear. This has to be the most original vampire movie ever. My friends and I loved every second and will watch it many times.

Well, well. I picked up this DVD and have not been more surprised in a long time. Now, I am a huge movie fan (as most of you are) and see A LOT of movies. Now, given the dreck that is mainstreamed these days, it's a damn shame Modern Vampires was direct to video. But for this who catch it, it is a great find. Not only a nice take on the vampire genre, liberally campy of course, it is just down right hilarious. I have not proceeded to laugh out loud at a film in quite some time. Supplied with the fact that I couldn't believe the number of "known" actors in the film. From the likes of legends like Rod Steiger and Udo Kier, to young upstarts Natasha Watson and Casper Van Dien (forget Starship Troopers, he is even better here, and gets to show some range). Toss in perennial supporters like Rob Passtorelli and Kim Catrall and a host of others. Bottom line: this movie is a hidden gem. And forget the ridiculous packaging. It is completely misleading. Oh, and if you have a DVD player, get that version. The commentary track with Van Dien and Director Elfman is one of the most entertaining anf funny AND informative I have run across. Get bit by Modern Vampires and I promise, you too will believe....

This movie is deliberately, carefully, precicely made to be absolutely awful. And because it's supposed to be so bad, because no effort is made to make it a dramatic great, it's perfect. It's got some great ideas - I LOVE the vampire hunters and the take on Van Helsing.
This movie is, in it's way, seamless. I put off getting it for so long, despite Amazon popping it into my recommendations every other day for a year; and now that I have it I'm glad.
It's evenly paced, cheerful, full of action, a little love story, some bloody murder, utterly horrible special effects and some synthisyzer-dubbed wildcat screams. You can't take it seriously, and you're not supposed to. But for all that, it's very well made.

Modern Vampires is the hippest, sexiest, most outrageous vampire movie that I have ever seen. Casper Van Dien plays the coolest vampire. Rod Steiger does an excellent take on Dr. Van Helsing, the famous vampire hunter. When Van Helsing unwittingly hires gang bangers as his assistants, all hell breaks loose. It is an absolute romp. The scene where the gang bangers gang bang a hideous monster (played by Kim Catrall from Sex in the City) is not to be believed! Do not miss this film.

This movie is a riot. It involves an alternate vampire world a la Buffy or Anita Blake, but does not take itself too seriously. If you've seen the Steve Martin movie "LA Story", this is the LA Story world with vampires. The acting is sometimes wonderfully over the top (Kim Cattrall from "Sex in the City", Rod Steiger as Van Helsing and Craig Ferguson as a terrific British Vamp) sometimes merely adequate (Casper Van Dien of course), but its the ridiculous situational comedy scenes that make this movie.
Modern Vampires has TUNS of terrifically bizarre scenes. The "people as food" motif is hilariously done in an LA sort of way. You have a crazed Dr. Van Helsing aided by Crypts gang members going after bizarre fun-loving and weird LA Vamps, who are themselves enmeshed in trying to help a trailer park trash vamp (played well by Natasha Gregson Wagner) in learning how to be civilized while not incurring the wrath of the local head vamp who wants her "dead."
For a T&A rating, this movie gets a big 2 thumbs up. There is a good sprinkling of jovial and perky nakedness throughout that helps makes this movie a nice grade-B gem. While Modern Vampires did not make it to the big screen, it certainly deserves to be watched at home. 5 stars on the B-grade movie scale.

This is a hard film to describe, and may not be for the meek of mind or heart. It is a satire of immense and completely insane dimensions. The cast is all great, especially Casper Van Dien and Rod Steiger as the famous vampire hunter, Dr. Van Helsing. I am still laughing when I think about the gang bangers getting romantic with the "she-monster." This film is an original.
