Critic Reviews of "Vampires"Lessons of DarknessJune 05, 2011
A suspense-free snark-fest desperate to turn its protagonist - vampire slayer Jack Crow (James Woods) - into a Snake Plisskin-style icon of supernatural-badass cool.Matt's Movie ReviewsJuly 07, 2010
Vampires is an entertaining watch thanks to James Woods's great performance.Cinema CrazedApril 29, 2009
All in all, Carpenter does a good job with this stylish and scary vampire movie, giving us a great leading hero and a great villain.eFilmCritic.comJuly 25, 2007
Grungy, disreputable fun -- the kind of blood-and-tequila western that can only be made nowadays when disguised as a horror movie.Combustible CelluloidFebruary 03, 2007
Very good, very basic, stripped-down film fueled by a bluesy guitar score.FulvueDrive-in.comMarch 04, 2006
Woods is entertaining as badass vampire hunter Jack Crow, but the meanness he exhibits toward his young priest assistant is offensive and completely unnecessary. Still, this is Carpenter's best film since the 1980s ended.Kalamazoo GazetteJuly 31, 2003
The movie is basically one-note: A vampire is harpooned and dragged out into the daylight where the body instantly explodes into flames. Creativity in action, for sure.Movie MetropolisApril 21, 2002
...little more than an excuse to watch people kill each other in the most brutal possible ways.Film Journal InternationalJanuary 01, 2000
You have to hand it to James Woods: He doesn't go out of his way to make himself likeable on screen.
