They are attacking people in the area at night and drink their blood. Those people go missing afterward. There are a total of 4 vampires that haunt this place, and Miguel and his friends are left with no choice but to defend against them. Most people don’t believe these kids, and they are left with mediocre and pop-culture tools to protect against these powerful beings.
People’s Reaction to “ Vampires vs. the Bronx”
A considerable amount of reviews have come, and most people are not sure about the movie. This is essentially a kids movie made with lighter content in mind, and most adults will be unimpressed. The current IMDB rating is average at 5.2, with only about 3000 reactions. This means that the movie is not popular despite being released for a week now. The kids involved in this plot are a lot weaker as compared to the Vampires involved. None of the adults believe them despite the missing people everywhere. They are forced into a situation where there is next to no chance of winning. Still, they end up coming on top. This is a cliche plot that can only attract a limited amount of audience.
Aside from that, the cinematography is spot on for the movie. The screenplay is done by a prominent artist, and the comedy lines are on the point most of the time. If you are into the goofy and comedic style of movies, you will find it enjoyable. The horror for this movie is off, and you will find a clear pattern of cliche related to vampires. There is a courthouse up for sale, and it is turning into apartments. Some vampires were living inside the abandoned courthouse, and they are terrorizing the neighborhood to save their house. How many times have we seen such a plot? Just this time, it is funny.
