DVD REVIEW: Vampires Suck - Jenn Proske, Matt Lanter, Jason Friedberg

Release Date: 14/02/11


As Becca struggles to contend with her overbearing father, two fierce rivals compete to win her heart. But Becca isn't the only high-school student having a hard time with boys; her friends are all desperate to find a date for the prom, and as the big night draws near, the rampant tension draws out the animals in everyone.


With Vampires being all the rage, it was only a matter of time before a parody would hit the movie screens. What you get with this title is a film that checks into the Twilight saga whilst also adding a couple of pieces from other popular vampire series that felt like it was a bit flat as the snappy one liners really lacked bite alongside cast members who did their damnedest with an inferior script that should have been shoved in the grave long ago.

It did have the odd moment of possibilities however when you take a pop at a genre make sure you go the whole hog, and stake as many vampire franchises as possible rather than just the odd one. All in pretty shoddy and to be honest there were plenty of other parody titles that really should get your attention before embarking onto this title which sadly lived up to its name.

Yeah, I heard this wasn't the greatest. But I feel there was so much potential for a great spoof here! Too bad.
