Vampiress Review: "Danger, Dames & Dangerous Games"

The Gist: A bumbling accountant named Marvin is recruited by the FBI and a crime family when his vampire boss tries to eat him resulting in him uncovering an entire plot filled with monster.

Female Vampire Factor: Just one.  One of the main protagonists co-workers, a mousey woman named Kinglsley (Susan Gordon). She definitely feels like a vampire version of Harley Quinn (Batman the Animated Series goofy nuts Harley, not movie gutter trash Harley).  It's explained that she was the quiet innocent push over in the office who lost it and went super homicidal once she became a vampire.
It is also hinted that the woman who informs Marvin of the problem he's in that encourages him to take the case (Shanna Vincent) is also a vampire but that's never confirmed.

Final Opinion: This is a comedy in the same vein as "The Naked Gun" with the main character telling the story as the narrator but him being an idiot and misunderstanding all the things going on around him.  While the main antagonist is a vampire there is very little vampirism in the film itself.  As far as the jokes they are hit or miss with the ones that are miss being initially funny but then they run it to the ground till it gets annoying. I give it a Vampire Beauty Rating of 2 out of 5.  I liked Kingsley.  The only issue is she doesn't show up till the end of the film.
