Vampires Vs. The Bronx (2020)
A tale of class war and vampires in the Bronx, which faces having the life sucked from it. NY looks nice at night. Sinister smirking types move in. They are vampires. Method Man and Zoe Saldana are the name stars. There is talk of a block party and missing people. A cat lurks in a deli and then it doesn't. What happened to the cat? Men play cards on the street.
The Bronx is a less loved area. The Murnau company moves in and there are no changes for the positive in the area just ideologically cruel vampires eating people. Tensions are fuelled, 'Salem's Lot' is read and baddies act purposefully. A priest keeps order as vampires cast a dark shadow. There is gentrification and an attempt to save a bodega from menacing parasitic forces.
Vampires are bad people and determined adversaries and a regrettable development in the area. Vampires and gangbangers have a malicious streak. Kid heroes have injured innocence. This was earnest camp and a new arrival is enthusiastically insincere. Changes to the area bring the locals little they could describe as joy.
A courthouse is being turned into 'apartments' aka a vampire nest. Frank Polidori is a real estate agent and the vampire's bitch, he is played by Shea Whigman from 'Waco'. Vampires have no reflection, the boys mothers yell out windows and emasculate them and the friendly bodega owner Tony is doomed. Polidori is the Renfield. There is nut milk. The kids watch 'Blade' to learn tips. Where is the cat?
The kids can't spell. The vampires plot and a key is important. A butter store is to open soon. Maple scones are a thing? The nice lady, Vivian, is a vampire and suddenly acquires much longer hair and an evil black outfit after the reveal. Tony dies. The kids store holy water in Sprite bottles and why is there church at night? The vampires want a home. There is a lock and load montage and comedy. Vivian is 700 years old but she's defeated by tweens. This was good. But where is the cat?!?

The Dead Don't Die (2019)
Adam Driver v zombies. Eventually. Polar fracking ends the world. Tilda Swinton is Scottish and Driver's character is a 'Star Wars' fan. This was okay and droll.
