An American Vampire Story Reviews
The focus of the film might seem captivating to hardcore vampire enthusiasts, but it's completely centered around embarassing dialogue and hokey acting from it's characters. I watched this film solely because of Carmen Electra (which has her picture displayed all over the cover), on top of that, she's hardly present in any of the scenes. I know she wouldn't have saved this film for me, but maybe a little skin might have made it bearable.
American Vampire steers into ridiculous territory with production having a hazy vibe throughout. The plot is pure cheese factor, having no intelligence, or any horror for that matter; the presence of gore is completely non-existant. The film was made only to show that the director can make a shoddy production. The leads were a waste and were not even subtle in their horrible acting, even though having Adam West as the Big Kahuna was rather humorous. Upon first meeting, his character gets really interested in what the "scantily-clad" female vampires look like, even asking the teenager if he was gay for turning down their seductive advances. Why wasn't more humor like this involved in the script? Granted, I wasn't really expecting anything from American Vampire, except a chance to check out Electra and Co.; which was also disappointing.
