It's not scary, obviously there are vampires, but it's actually supposed to be funny rather than scary. I enjoyed it and loved Pike and Buffy. Any movie made in the 80s/90s with a good excersise/fighting montage is always a great film. I now want to go out and buy some new clothes because of Buffy, a lot of what she wore then is actually my style (i.e. Flannel shirts, sneakers, doc matins instead of heals, etc.). Definetly a great film to watch no matter what year it is.
