3 out of 4 stars -

To paraphrase the famous suckhead slayer Blade, "Some horror movies are always trying to ice-skate uphill." You could never accuse Vampires vs. the Bronx of such ambition when it comes to its own take on suckheads, but director Oz Rodriguez's horror-comedy is so peppy, and so collectively charismatic, that you probably won't care. That the movie doesn't overthink its plot synopsis of a title is part of its charm, along with the laugh-out-loud performances from the adults who aren't shocked when gentrification haunts their corner of New York.
