I love October, the fall weather, the changing of the leaves, the whole spookiness of the season. One of the best parts of the season is all the horror movies that come out during this time of the year. Unfortunately, Regal announced they’re closing down theaters across the board for the rest of the year, so not a lot of horror/thriller’s dropping this year. So we have to take what we can get.
There’s not a lot of great vampire movies out there, so I was pretty excited when Netflix announced this one. ‘Vampires vs the Bronx’ is about a local kid trying to save his neighborhood from going under as rent is being steadily raised. A real state company moves in offering to buy people’s businesses and homes, only problem is, they’re vampires.
‘Vampires vs the Bronx’ stars Sarah Gadon (True Detective), The Kid Mero (Desus & Mero), Jaden Michael (The Get Down), Gerald Jones III (Blue Bloods), Gregory Diaz IV (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), and Method Man (How High).
As I said earlier there isn’t a lot of great vampire movies out there, and unfortunately this movie falls into this category. They just didn’t seem to know what direction they wanted to go with it. At times it was a horror film, then a comedy, then a cheesy mixture of both. The vampires also looked like they were borrowed from ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’, just a cheesy look. It just didn’t work, and in the end it’s a forgettable film. I give it a 5/10.
