Adam Loves Bad Movies’s review published on Letterboxd :
August Horror Scavenger Hunt ‘18
2. August 2nd would have been Wes Craven's birthday. We get to watch a Wes Craven movie that has no sequel or remake. However, you can watch a remake that he has directed.
I’ve never seen this before, but it’s the kind of movie that’s a pure guilty pleasure, because you either get it and know what the movie is going for, or you just end up seeing it as a dumb goofy vampire movie. Which it is. But also, Wes Craven knew what he was doing here, and so should you.
Eddie Murphy’s accent is some Nic Cage level Neaveu Shamanic, and if you think of this as a lost Nic Cage movie I think this would be a lot more popular.
