    A steady supply of spiky humor and a game cast keep this cooking most of the way, though the pacing could have been tighter and the film seems as if it's about to end two or three times before it actually does. show more

    As in the earlier film, this one dances always at the edge of comedy. It especially has fun with the Rules of Vampire Behavior. show more
