Vampire in Brooklyn ★★½

Feels much more like an Eddie Murphy production than it does a Wes Craven film. Craven's touches are there and you can sense his decision making behind the craftsmanship but the humor doesn't seem to jive with Craven in the way this would've in someone like John Landis' hands. Murphy gets to stretch his ego into a couple of other roles, which was his thing, but Craven almost seems unsure of what to do with it in terms of mixing tones and instead just lets the camera watch Murphy do his thing. Which doesn't really work for the humor or the horror. Murphy does do menacing well but Bassett's clearly the best part of this.
