“With a distinctively middle-aged zest, Carpenter retools even the hopeless cliché requiring action heroes to spout bad puns while dispatching bad guys; his eminently stylish movie proves that new blood can flow from an old vein.” – Lisa Alspector, Chicago Reader

“There’s an offhand sense of humor at work here, which Baldwin delivers with aplomb…Woods appears to be getting a kick out of his character’s take-no-prisoners posturing and, especially, his malicious taunting of priests.” – Bob Graham, San Francisco Chronicle

John Carpenter’s Vampires (1998) stars the irrepressible James Woods as a Vatican-sanctioned vampire slayer assisted by a wise-cracking sidekick (Daniel Baldwin) and a naïve young priest (Tim Guinee); they’re pitted against a centuries-old vamp (Thomas Ian Griffith) in an attempt to retrieve a religious relic that will allow the nocturnal types to stalk the world in the full light of day. Also starring Maximilian Schell and Sheryl Lee, and featuring a terrific score by the versatile Carpenter.

I agree Woods is excellent but for me it's a shame about the rest of the film. I just think after The Thing Carpenter was never the same again. The magic just seemed to leave his films for me anyway.

I somewhat agree with you that his movies went on the decline but more towards the mid 90's. But there were still some good ones after the Thing. Christine, Big Trouble in Little China, Prince of Darkness, They Live, Memoirs of an Invisible Man, In the Mouth of Madness...

C'mon... :D
