From the master of terror comes a new breed of evil.
The future of mankind rests in the hands of master slayer jack crow as he moves to prevent the master vampire from reaching his ultimate goal for the legions of undead, the ability to walk in daylight. If you've always bought the myth that vampires can only walk in the dark, you haven't met the master.

Editor's Note
Prolific director John Carpenter takes on the vampire genre in his action-horror film VAMPIRES. Bitter, tough-as-nails vampire hunter Jack Crow (James Woods) leads a specialized team, funded by no less than the Vatican, that is dedicated to destroying the race of vampires that inhabit the earth. The team is successful, and becomes lazy in its success, eventually falling victim to an elaborate ambush set up by a powerful master vampire. Crow and two others of his team are the only survivors, and are determined to get revenge for the massacre. Carpenter takes the genre to new heights with powerful action scenes, nifty vampire-killing weapons and great special effects. James Woods is wonderfully over the top as the head vampire hunter who has no love for the Vatican and a mysterious past that is never far behind him. VAMPIRES is based on the book by John Steakley, adapted for the screen by Don Jakoby. The score is creepy and powerful, a typical characteristic for a Carpenter film.

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone
"...A bracing blend of fright and fun..." 11/12/1998 p.121-2

Sight and Sound
"...[Carpenter] has an eye for widescreen imagery, a knack for getting the plot rolling swiftly....And an ear for apt music..." 12/??/1999 p.60

Box Office
"...Woods has the time of his life....The movie's lots of fun..." 11/01/1998 p.155

Box Office Magazine 7 of 10
In a perfect bit of casting, James Woods is Jack Crow, the leader of a team of vampire slayers hired by the Catholic Church... Vampires is a tough-minded movie that doesn't, as Crow aptly puts it, "romanticize the bloodsuckers."... (Director John) Carpenter is great at mixing toungue-in-cheek humor and scares in equal measure... - Shlomo Schwartzberg
