The first film in the Vampires trilogy is a classic, thanks mainly to the slick script, fast paced storyline and an uba-cool James Woods. This follow-up offering lacks everything really; nothing for the gore fiends to get remotely excited about, a flimsy story and pretty dire acting.
Jon Bon Jovi gives it a good go, but in comparison to Woods in the original he pails into mediocity. There was some excellent special effects in the first film, but all we get here is vampires bursting into flames over and over and over again. I was really bored by the end.
I notice that this sequal is 'presented' by John Carpenter, but not actually directed by him. It's patently obvious on reflection.
Dare I say, I bought this movie as a part of the Vampires Trilogy Box-Set and I haven't watched the third and final part yet...I dread to think how rubbish it's going to be if this is anything to go by!
All in all, a poor film with very little going for it. Buy and watch Vampires (the first one), but draw the line, very firmly, right there.
