This movie dips into quite a few things from other movies: Fright Night, The Lost Boys, Attack the Block, and The Monster Squad.
The effects are pretty good as well as the humor in it. It was weird to see Method Man as a Father to a church though I must admit.
The film gives it that urban style to it for being a PG-13 movie. Some profanity is used but not heavily on the gore, which means it is okay for family viewing (or more so a horror for older kids and teens like Goosebumps). All that said, this movie won't hit a home run for many adults if they are not into the story.
