Between 1994 - 1998, Wes Craven was the horror king. He had 4 movies, WES CRAVEN'S NEW NIGHTMARE, VAMPIRE IN BROOKLYN, SCREAM and SCREAM 2. 1 solidified him as a horror genius, 1 cemented it, 1 kept his name going while the other one, VAMPIRE IN BROOKLYN is more or less considered a dud. It is the weakest of the four, but it does have a lot going for it, too. My dog's name is Max, and I especially loved it when Eddie morphed into Preacher Pauley and delivered the hilarious "evil is good" sermon. There is also the fact that Mitch Pileggi played thug #1, Tony. Genre fans will remember him as the killer in his 1989 SHOCKER, as well as AD Skinner on the X - files and Samuel Campbell on SUPERNATURAL, as well as Nick Corri as thug #2, Anthony. He is best known as Rod in A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET. This is actually one of my very favorite Eddie Murphy roles, and is a nice change of pace to see Wes Craven do a lore movie. The previous one was 1987'S THE SERPENT AND THE RAINBOW.
