I wanted to like it and appreciated the effects, dream sequences and use of the undead but I found it neither funny (thanks to the very stilted delivery of the lead) nor scary (thanks to the lack of any tension during any of the attack sequences).
Manages to weave horror, humor, romance and drama together pretty deftly. Some very memorable sequences. Ignore the inane sequel.
Cult classic that really holds its own, even 30 years later. Great entertainment with an eccentric mix of horror and bizarre humor.
