Editorial Reviews

Eddie Murphy's got the bite in this movie mix of bone-chilling horror and chill-out comedy directed by Wes Craven (A Nightmare on Elm Street). As the vampire Maximillian, the popular star is the most diabolical, dashing and definitely undead dude in the 'hood. To add to the macabre fun, Murphy morphs into two other must-see characters: a paunchy preacher and a fast talking thug. Angela Basset (Waiting to Exhale, What's Love Got To Do With It) plays the cop whose world is rocked by Maximillian's attempts to make her his mate for eternity. And Kadeem Hardison (TV's A Different World) is the haplessly decaying vampire's sidekick who (a hand here, and ear there) is forever losing things. Brooklyn may be home to the undead now that Max is around-but means it's livelier than ever!

In the 1980s, Eddie Murphy single-handedly recreated the Black Action hero, replacing the old murderous superstud of the 1970s with black characters who depended on their quick wits more than their big guns. That formula was quickly run dry, however, both by Murphy himself and the imitators he inspired.
So, Eddie intelligently decided that he needed to recreate a forgotten genre of comedy, one which Peter Sellars had mastered in the 60s, and which only Murphy could do today: he would make movies in which he played multiple characters. The Genesis began with "Coming to America", in which Murphy played not only the lead role, but also all the inhabitants of a Harlem barbershop. The sequences were short, but Murphy was building the road to becoming the most brilliant character actor of our day. Soon followed the "Nutty Professor" movies, "Bowfinger", and his animated TV series, "The PJ's." In all these Murphy played a multiplicity of roles, and played them all brilliantly (the Academy's disdain for streetwise comedies, and--well, lets just say it--their dismissal of black performers not playing slaves or pimps, are the only explanations possible for Murphy not owning an Oscar or two by now).
With these projects, Eddie was not only playing different characters, but also honing a new Eddie Murphy genre: raunchy, but intelligent; gross, but heartfelt; hilariously over the top in the particulars of plot, but firmly rooted in emotional reality. He has created or has been involved with, some of the arguably best comedies of the 1990's and onward--and has been responsible for inarguably the best comic performances of the era.
So, in this era, Eddie decided to push the envelope by mixing the new Eddie Genre with the Horror films he loved as a kid.

While this horror/comedy is another vehicle for Eddie Murphy to do multiple roles and such, the stars of the film are Kadeem Harddison and John Witherspoon. More on that later.

In the film, Eddie is Maximillion, a black vampire who has recently escaped hunters in the carriebian to find the last of his tribe who is the result of an affair between a human woman and a vampire. This hybird, of course, is played by Angela Bassett named Rita.

Allen Payne also stars as Justice, Rita's cop partner and potential lover who ends up fighting to save her soul from being seduced into a life of a vampire of Maximillion.

Kadeem Harddison plays as Eddie's ghoul and henchman while John Whitherspoon plays Kadeem's uncle. The two get into some hilarious situations and help keep the movie light. In fact, I would dare say in some of their scenes, they steal the show and help save this film.

This is one where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Each person plays their parts to perfection. A good film if you have a Saturday night to waste.

This was a suprize to me, I had my doubts before I saw this movie, but was happily suprized with the result. Eddie Murphy portrays a Vampire that is truely scary and Angela Bassett is the woman he desires to be his Vampire Queen.
Set in Brooklyn, this has an unusual twist since this is one of the first Vampire films that has an African-American as the lead Vampire since Blackula was released in the late 1960's-early 1970's. Murphy has done a good job in portraying a Vampire who has class, dignity, strength and yet is a ruthless killer at the same time who will stop at nothing to find his queen.
Angela Bassett plays a tormented-haunted police officer who is an outcast in the police force, and she is trying to find answers to her life. Yet there is a secret to her past that will leave her with a life (or death) changing choice to make.
The humor is good, and Murphy dosen't use his usual sense of humor which he is famous for, which enhances this film. Overall, this is an entertaining movie that is worth watching over again.

Vampire in Brooklyn is suprisingly good! I would never expect to see Eddie Murphy as a vampire, but he was pretty funny onscreen. The jokes worked, but the creepiness in some parts of the film also worked. Also featured here is Eddie playing multiple characters (like in Coming to America and Nutty Professor); he as the preacher is the funniest out of all of them. Angela Bassett and Allen Payne are great as the detectives who start to see that Angela is the one that the vampire is searching for. This film in general isn't as good as the more classic Murphy films, but it's good for those who are looking for a good time and for those who are interested in urban vampires.

I ordered this video because it is a classic for Eddie Murphy. I enjoyed it years ago when it was first released and decided to add it to my collection of Murphy DVDs.

This movie works because it is completely different than any other vampire movie I've seen. It has an intriguing story line, some good special effects and a very rare mix of horror and humor. Critics claim that it is not scary enough to work as a horror movie, and while not as scary as many it has it's moments. The comedy in the movie makes me laugh. Julius, the ghoul, is definitely a bright spot. Murphy has some good lines as well of the darker variety such as when referring to the quickest way to a girls heart he replies "Through the rib cage, but it is a bit messy." Definitely recommend this movie if your a fan of Eddie Murphy or vampire movies.
