The concept of an organized group of Vampire hunters, the hard and direct way they do their job and the no-nonsense attitude of James Woods as Jack the head killer would have translated very well to the small screen.
The movie itself suffers only from the quick elimination of most of the team. It would seem very unlikely that these "professinals" would be so easily taken.
All of the characters are acted well. I've never had much use for the Baldwin brothers, but Daniel does a good job here. The biggest kudos have to go to James Woods who as always gives a performance that is so believeable that you can't think of the role with any other actor.
John Carpenter's Vampires is a gritty no nonsense movie that is worth your money and a great variation to a genre that could use it.
