We bet you thought this was brilliant when it was first out. It hasn’t really worn that well, though, as we discovered when we found it on video a while ago. Frankly, there is nothing even vaguely threatening about Kiefer Sutherland even with comedy teeth and it’s difficult to maintain a mood of terror and fear amid constant shouts from viewing companions of ‘That’s him from Bill and Ted!’ and ‘Is Corey Feldman actually related to Marty Feldman, then?’ Also the female interest is called Star, for heaven’s sake, and her little vampire brother really should have been topped early on, if only for wearing a Sergeant Pepper jacket.
