Synopsis

After destroying a vampire nest in rural New Mexico, Team Crow is savagely ambushed during the victory celebration by the unholy Valek, a vicious 600-year-old vampire. With most of his team massacred, and accompanied only by a young priest and the sole surviving member of his team, Montoya, Crow pursues Valek through the high deserts, culminating in a fateful confrontation between faith and immortality.

Crude, rude, nasty fun.

The essential problem with the movie isn't that it's loud, violent, and gory, but that, before Carpenter ratchets up the tension in the final 35 minutes, it's not especially interesting.

The movie has a certain mordant humor, and some macho dialogue that's funny. Woods manfully keeps a straight face through goofy situations where many another actor would have signaled us with a wink. But the movie is not scary, and the plot is just one gory showdown after another.
