A-Z: Vampire in Brooklyn

Vampire in Brooklyn is about a Vampire from a Caribbean Island that travels to New York to find his mate.  Maximillian (Eddie Murphy) is a suave and sophisticated Vampire who is the last of the line of Vampires from the island.  To save his race from extinction, he must find his mate and turn her.  He knows that there was a child born half Vampire and when he meets Rita (Angela Bassett) he starts wooing her and pushing her to embrace her blood sucking destiny.

Rita is a detective with the NYPD and does not know she is part Vampire.  Together, she and her partner, Justice (Allen Payne), investigate a string of murders that started when Maximillian sailed into town.  Maximillian saves Rita’s life and she agrees to have dinner with him.  While dancing, he bites her neck.  Rita starts falling in love with Maximillian.  The next day, she and Justice share a passionate moment, which activates her transition into a Vampire and she almost bites Justice on the neck.  She realizes that Maximillian isn’t what he seems and when she confronts him, she is forced to choose between Maximillian and Justice.



  1. That movie is an oldy but goody. Forgot all about it. Thanks for the reminder.
    Happy A to Z-ing!


  2. I never saw this one. I just couldn’t grasp the idea of Eddie Murphy as a vampire!
