Vampire in Brooklyn is a 1995 horror-comedy movie that stars Eddie Murphy, Angela Bassett, and Allen Payne. It follows the story of a vampire named Maximillian (played by Murphy), who is searching for a mate to continue his legacy. The story begins with Maximillian traveling to New York City on a ship that is carrying the remains of his half-vampire/half-ghoul servant, Boris. Maximillian is the last known vampire, and his goal is to find a suitable mate before the onset of his rapidly approaching "day of death."

Maximillian arrives in Brooklyn, where he meets Rita Veder (played by Bassett), a police detective who is investigating a series of murders. During her investigation, Rita discovers that Maximillian is a vampire and initially has a hard time accepting this.

Maximillian decides to seduce Rita and convinces her to go out with him. Rita's partner, Justice (played by Allen Payne), is suspicious of Maximillian and tries to convince Rita to steer clear of him.

However, despite Justice's warnings, Rita falls under Maximillian's spell, and the two begin a romantic relationship. As their relationship progresses, Rita's fate becomes increasingly entwined with Maximillian's, and she finds herself facing a dark and dangerous future.

The rest of the movie is a rollercoaster of thrills, chills, and laughs. The film features Eddie Murphy in one of his most impressive performances, playing both his charming and seductive self and his monstrous, blood-thirsty vampire persona.

Angela Bassett's powerful performance as a strong-willed detective adds depth to the film and helps to balance out the comedic elements. The chemistry between the two leads is electric, and their scenes together pack a real emotional punch.

Allen Payne provides comic relief as a bumbling detective who is always on the lookout for something to eat. His scenes with Eddie Murphy are particularly hilarious, with the two actors playing off each other perfectly.

Overall, Vampire in Brooklyn is a must-see movie for horror fans looking for a fun and exciting new spin on the vampire genre. It combines humor, romance, and horror flawlessly, making it one of the most entertaining films of its kind.

Vampire in Brooklyn is a 1995 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 40 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.6 and a MetaScore of 27.
