If you haven’t guessed it already, the movie in question is none other than the infamous “Morbius.” Starring Jared Leto, Matt Smith, Tyrese Gibson, and Adria Arjona, “Morbius” follows Dr. Michael Morbius (Leto), a brilliant doctor who suffers from an exceptionally rare blood condition. In his unorthodox attempts to cure his ailment, Dr. Morbius gains vampire-like powers, which grant super speed and echolocation. Unfortunately, these fantastic powers come tethered with an incredible lust for blood. This is why the distinction is made when referring to the character — the “Living Vampire.”
Although universally panned, “Morbius” created an entire slew of memes, which often focused on the phrase, “It’s Morbin’ Time!” So powerful were these memes that even Sony, the studio that brought us the film, thought it was a good idea to re-release the film in theaters after its original run, only to suffer an even more abysmal fate. The Rotten Tomatoes score for “Morbius” is currently hovering around 15% for a critic score, but audiences have viewed the movie more favorably, as it currently has an audience score of 71%. On the bright side, with “Morbius” now offered on Netflix, one can take the time to watch the film and form their own opinion. Just don’t hold out for a moment in which the Living Vampire says his meme-centric, ultimately made-up catchphrase.
