Netflix ‘Vampires vs The Bronx’ involves several current social situations which also happens to co-star Method Man & The Kid Mero.

Off to a shaky start, the movie takes a number of turns and twist along the way. Vampires vs The Bronx becomes a euphemism. Mostly from a social climate in which many black and brown neighborhoods are struggling with. While it was entertaining, the movie also exposed issues created by financial burdens unchecked by the city. Including violence, gentrification, native businesses, and the rising cost of living for many living in the urban surrounding cities. The characters eventually take a comedic shape and create great on-screen teen chemistry. 

The Osmany Rodriguez directed film co-stars Method Man as the community priest and The Kid Mero as a bodega owner. Both supplied the movie with familiarity and local lingo. The one thing that seemed foreign was hearing ex-Disney stars curse, sidebar CoCo Jones’s script. It did not feel out of the way at all but it was a brief highlight.  Netflix ‘Vampires vs The Bronx’ follows a group of teenagers who are forced to protect their neighborhood from a realtor and a gathering of vampires. The invasion of the South Bronx references some clips from Blade, all in good faith in killing a few hundred vampires.

If you’re looking for a movie with little but budding teens, this would be that movie. Netflix has been holding out on original content but I think as the month continues we’ll eventually get some of those horror flicks Hollaween promised us.
