Stumbling upon the 2024 movie "The Vampire Next Door" by random luck here in 2024, and never having heard about it, I opted to sit down and watch it, given the fact that it is a new vampire-themed horror movie that I hadn't already seen. And I was sort of hoping that given the movie's title and synopsis, then maybe it would be a movie somewhat akin to "Fright Night".
I have to say that the movie's cover/poster was cheesy, so very, very cheesy, and it felt like the movie might have belonged in the "True Blood" universe, or that kind of teenage girl vampire fantasy setting.
The narrative in "The Vampire Next Door" was rather slow paced and uneventful, and that made sitting through the movie somewhat of a struggle and an ordeal. And I have to say that I was close to giving up on watching it more than once throughout the course of the 110 minutes that the movie ran for. So writer and director Sean King didn't exactly impress me with his 2024 horror movie "The Vampire Next Door".
