Vampire In Brooklyn (1995)


  • Eddie Murphy
  • Angela Bassett
  • Kadeem Hardison
  • Allen Payne
  • Zakes Mokae
  • John Witherspoon
Murphy switches gears to play a Carribean vampire traveling to New York in search of his vampiric lady love--who turns out to be half-vamp-half-cop Bassett. As in "Coming to America," Murphy plays multiple characters, but that's three times the disappointment. Stale humor and cheap horror effects do little to break the zombie curse plaguing Murphy's career. Three days into filming, a stunt double for Bassett was killed after doing a routine jump on the set, providing a bad omen Murphy should have heeded.
