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.

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

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.
