From the Back Cover
John Carpenter Presents Vampires: Los Muertos is the terrifying sequel to the horror hit, John Carpenters Vampires. Tough-as-nails vampire hunter Derek Bliss (Jon Bon Jovi - U-571) is on the hunt for "suckers" in the heart of Mexico when he received a new assignment from a mysterious client. Thrown together with a group of slayers, including sexy Zoey, who may or may not be one of the undead, Derek and company are up against a growing number of fast-moving, bloodthirsty vampires and their elusive and powerful leader, who has plans of her own for the slayers.

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.
But if you are one of the six people who DID want to see that, then "Vampires - Los Muertos" is the right movie. This is a block of incoherent, grade-A vampire cheese that unwittingly entertains just by being so inept -- it has wooden acting from every single actor who isn't Diego Luna, and stumbles through some of the worst action scenes ever choreographed.
Freelance vampire hunter Derek Bliss (Jon Bon Jovi) is hired to get together a team of hunters to do... something. Then an entire monastery of priests and monks is slaughtered to get at the ancient the Berziers Cross, which can apparently make vampires immune to sunlight. The culprit: the evil Una (Arly Jover), who... well, wants to be immune to sunlight.
So Derek reluctantly teams up with the only people available: a demi-vampire named Zoe (Natasha Gregson Wagner), a priest who can't emote (Cristián de la Fuente) and a fifteen-year-old boy who wants to be a vampire hunter (Diego Luna). They set off into the assorted ruins of Mexico, since the filmmakers seem to think that Mexico doesn't have any intact/inhabited buildings, hoping to stop Una before she becomes unstoppable.
The casting in "Vampires - Los Muertos" truly fascinates me, mainly because of Jon Bon Jovi as a hardened veteran vampire hunter. Not only does he look like an aging surfer, but his wispy physique and silly-looking stake-gun make him look less plausible than Sarah Michelle Gellar. And yes, he is more wooden than his stakes.
He's not the only one: de la Fuente seems to have been cast entirely for his chiseled good looks, and Wagner seems to think acting consists of talking loudly in a flat, affected voice. And the casting of Jover is pretty baffling, because she and Wagner look almost identical -- I kept waiting for the revelation that they were related somehow, but it never came. Really, the only good performance is Diego Luna as an eager-puppy teen sidekick, and he's pretty much wasted.
And for a movie with such a simple plot (vampire steals crucifix, vampire hunters must get it back), it's pretty difficult to follow -- I had to watch the opening twenty minutes several times before I could figure out what was happening. What follows is an increasingly disjointed hunt for Una, punctuated by magical plot convenience -- a vampire attack is thwarted by an old man who "had a dream" that warned him. How convenient.
And it has plot holes the size of Mars. For instance: an experienced vampire hunter allows a pale, unknown woman to wander into his camp, cuddle up to him, and give him a blow job. Yes, he really is that stupid.
Finally, it has some of the worst action scenes I have seen in a movie with an actual budget. Any energy that the movie builds up dies horribly at the climax, which is a dusty, literally dragging action scene involving a harpoon, a lot of metallic cords, and (somehow) a crashing car. I have seen better action scenes in Internet videos.
"Vampires - Los Muertos" is a mass of cheese left out in the Mexican sun -- it's confusing, poorly-acted and has a plot that makes your brain turn inside-out. If only Rifftrax would give this movie their TLC.
I saw this without watching the first and it`s very easy to follow.

I'm giving Vampires:Los Muertos 3.8 out of 5 as I think it flows well with the first film, improving and developing certain aspects of the original films ideas and the score is good with an entertaining cast. This film is clearly a low budget follow up but I felt compared to most low budget horror films this film worked. There was a plot to follow, some gory scenes, some good characters, a great lead female Vampire and an O.K. twist. You do miss an actor like James Woods but Jon Bon Jovi still plays a likeable lead with a very good entrance into the movie. I didn't find any of the cast annoying and there was only one scene where if I had been the Director I would have changed it to have made the scene more convincing.
If you're the sort of person who can enjoy unnessary but good sequels like Tremors 2, Return of the Living Dead 2, Nightmare on Elm Street 2, Ghostbusters 2, Gremlins 2, Stayin Alive, Starship Troopers 2, Resident Evil 2, Highlander 2 etc then I think you'll enjoy Vampires:Los Muertos. If your definately the sort of person that only enjoys original movies then this film is one to avoid.
