Granted, I was only a teenager when I first saw them, but neither Dawn or Day impressed me on my first viewings. It took me a few tries before I really began to enjoy them. To be honest, they're still not favorites. I haven't watched either of them in probably 10 years.

I didn't care too much for Blade, but it's better than Macabre. That movie has an interesting first and final five minutes, but the rest is an exercise in drying paint.
