  • When a horror-comedy is as agile, charming, and funny as this, everybody wins.

  • Vampires against the Bronx isn't bad.... [but] that's not enough, in the end there is almost nothing left from the less than hour and a half that was worth remembering. [Full review in Spanish]

  • This film looks at gentrification, with the clever use of vampires working with the literal metaphor.

  • Vampires vs. The Bronx delivers a spirited adventure that intelligently connects its thrills to our societal zeitgeist.

  • The kids' chemistry makes it easy for them to carry Vampires vs. the Bronx's quippy, self-referential humor that's at its strongest when the movie lets itself become properly goofy.

Audience Reviews for Vampires vs. The Bronx

  • Oct 10, 2020
    Take Attack the Block and mix with The Lost Boys and you get a perfectly enjoyable B- kind of fun B-movie about a group of Bronx tweens combating blood-suckers gentrifying their neighborhood, and vampires too. It's a pleasant experience that hankers back to enjoyable 80s ensembles and it maintains a sweetness without being sappy and an edge that feels appropriate for its age-range without getting too heavy or too simplistic. We follow our core characters as they investigate the would-be vampires, uncover their real estate schemes for the neighborhood, and then plan how best to thwart them. It's a reliable formula but it works. I enjoyed Shea Whigham (Kong: Skull Island) as the vampire middleman, and I enjoyed how his own character arc as a subservient villain is tied into another teen's arc about not following in the steps of his criminal older brother and rejecting people who only want to use you. That's smart writing, finding room to draw parallels and connect the personal to the thematic. The lead kids all have their own personalities and problems and I enjoyed spending time with them as they bonded, bickered, and bandied together as a team. Their chemistry made them feel like real friends. The horror doesn't really ever approach being scary or intense; when the vampires are in full teeth-baring mode, they seem more like the goofy, cheesy, cloaked figures from the TV soap Dark Shadows. It also feels like the movie runs a bit out of steam as it carries on into its final attack/assault on the vampire's nest. Still, Vampires vs. The Bronx is a funny and light-hearted 90 minutes with likeable characters and an enjoyably relaxed supernatural caper. It's not going to be too deep but you can tell the filmmakers care about these characters, the film's genre influences, and telling an accessible adventure to kids. Nate's Grade: B-
