In just over a month, Vampires Suck is released in the UK. From the school of cinema that brought us Epic Movie, Not Another Teen Movie and countless others, it attempts to mercilessly shred the Twilight movies. And other vampire cash-ins, but mostly Twilight.
In fact, if you’ve somehow managed to avoid any familiarity with the blood-sucking Pattinson juggernaut, you might struggle with this trailer. These people really hate sparkly vampires; it’s lucky they rushed it out quickly enough for Twilight references to seem relevant.
Scott Pilgrim Vs The Vampires
These movies already have a bad reputation for going for the cheap laugh, but Vampires Suck managed to attract further internet rage by out-earning geek darling Scott Pilgrim Vs The World at the US box office. Fortunately, Pilgrim made it out first over here, so there’s little risk of repetition.
Aside from that, it looks like a typical outing from the Hollywood self-parody factory, but there are a couple of good jokes in there. And it’s quite possible all the best bits are in the trailer, so checking it out below could save you the price of a cinema ticket.
Or am I being needlessly harsh? If you love these films, tell me off in the comments below.
