Vampire in Brooklyn is neither funny nor frightening and comes up a tedious middle-road hybrid from veteran scaremeister Wes Craven, who directed.

Neither as good as it might be nor as bad as you might expect.

To call this a comedy is a sign of optimism; to call it a comeback for Murphy is a sign of blind faith.

Murphy's pale efforts are enough to make one fondly recall Blacula. Now that was one sucker who knew how to make a film that didn't.

They're no match, though, for the crushing disappointment of having to watch Murphy on the comic sidelines. It's like going to a Barbra Streisand concert and being asked to listen with her while the rhythm section sings.

Doesn't live up to its promise or premise.

This modern fable is little more than a Murphy potboiler, something to while away a couple of hours, rather than fondly remember.

Craven can't keep the comic elements in balance with the horror, and as a result there's no tension or dramatic pull.
