      Ben H Corny, quirky, cliched... but a dumb comfort film. The amazing soundtrack brings everything together. An absolutely guilty pleasure... I will admit I'm guilty of rewatching this far too many times... Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/08/23 Full Review Steve D Not amusing because of the script. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 09/02/23 Full Review Audience Member The ending felt really rushed, loved the butcher shop dealing to vampires on the low, and the school dynamic was decent. But why turn into wolves and not bats? I didn't understand that part. But I liked the hint towards where wolves and the idea that there's other beings out there in the end. Spoilers How could the vampire hunter just be so chill with being turned?? It felt so out of character for him, I feel like it would have been way more fun and monstrous if the main character killed him or something, turned him into the police for kidnap maybe??? Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member Quarky movie that's fun, cheeky, a bit odd at times and has some great one-liners. I thoroughly enjoyed this movie as a teen and even now I quite enjoy it from time to time. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Horror comedies tend to be hard to pull off, finding the right amount of horror and comedic elements to make the film work can be tricky, but My Best Friend is a Vampire manages to pull off both elements quite well, and the result is An entertaining feature that boasts a good cast, with an entertaining story and whimsical performances that make this film standout among other such horror comedies. Like Fright Night, the film uses vampires in order to create the horror aspect, but the filmmakers add some fun, entertaining and worthwhile aspects to the script to make this a thoroughly engaging film experience. I really enjoyed the film and this film is well worth seeing if you enjoy the genre. My Best Friend is a Vampire is a well thought out affair, one that should be cherished by genre fans.

My Best Friend is a Vampire works quite well as a film that manages to bring horror and comedy into one film, and it's a film that is well worth seeing if you enjoy the genre.

The result works quite well, and this is a fun, entertaining film well worth your time. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member Another teen comedy with some horror elements. A high school student moonlights as a delivery-boy. He makes a delivery to the house of a sexy older woman who happens to be vampire Countess. Not very entertaining, despite a few funny moments; on par with the similarly-themed Once Bitten. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Brian Costello Common Sense Media This is a kitschy slice of '80s teen vampire cinema. My Best Friend is a Vampire has all the elements of teen comedies from the era -- the awkward teen boy lead character, his sex-obsessed best friend, the cheerleader, the girl who wears glasses. Rated: 2/5 Aug 16, 2023 Full Review Kevin Carr 7M Pictures pig-blood-flavored, bubble-gum fun Rated: 3/5 Apr 28, 2009 Full Review David Cornelius DVDTalk.com Its friendly nature and intriguing subtexts keep it from being just another slice of nostalgic filler.
