Snapshot: "Daybreakers" (2010)

In this snapshot from The Spierig Bro's "Daybreakers" (2010), vampire hunter Willem Dafoe sets his sights on a bloodsucker played by Ethan Hawke. In the future, as the human race is about to go extinct, the world's most influential vampires seek a blood substitute to keep their kind alive. Meanwhile, the last remnants of the human race are about to start fighting back. For more from the Spierig brothers, check out their strange take on the vampire mythos, "Undead" (2003). "Daybreakers" will hit US theaters on January 8th, 2010.

Thirst (REVIEW)

For whatever reason, we seem to be living in the age of vampire love. It seems you couldn’t walk into a cinema or turn on a TV this year without seeing a person conflicted about their desire to bang an animated blood-drinking revenant.

New Trailer for "Suck"

Did "Twilight" and its mopey tween vampires not quite get your blood pumping? Need some more cred when it comes to your fangs and creatures of the night? Then take a look at the new trailer for "Suck", a vampire spoof.

In the film, Malcolm McDowell (“Lost,” A Clockwork Orange, etc.) plays Eddie Van Helsing, a modern day version of Bram Stoker’s infamous Dracula hunter, who is trying to track down vampire rock band The Winners. Kinda reminds me of a certain Aaliyah-starring flick.

"Vampire Party" Trailer

In lieu of the "A Nightmare on Elm St." trailer, finding something blog worthy is difficult, so I give you something light, fluffy, and French. The trailer for "Vampire Party" while entirely in French, gives you a good idea of the level of ridiculousness that will permeate this film. It has a schlocky Vincent Price horror comedy feel that I love.

But truthfully, it doesn't do it any justice. For a better clip, Check this out:

Lesbian Vampire Killers (REVIEW)

If and when you decide to properly investigate British filmmaker Phil Claydon's cheeky 2009 horror/comedy "Lesbian Vampire Killers," you may find it rather difficult to separate this extremely silly "best buddies" picture from the like-minded genre-bending classic, "Shaun of the Dead." I'm sure the comparison has been made countless times before by more talented, articulate critics, but, to be fair, it's really not that hard to uncover the mountain of similarities between them. Does this glaring sameness derail this otherwise enjoyable cinematic experience?

"Live Evil" A New Spin on Vampires

Every day people fill their blood with all kinds of awful toxins. Booze, nicotine and God knows what kind of STD’s you people have floating around your systems. All of these things combined have polluted your blood to the point where it’s almost undrinkable to your local vampires. You selfish bastards.

Kevin Smith On "Twilight"

Alright it’s confession time here people. I have something that’s been eating away at me for months now and I need to get it off my chest. I, Joe… blogger of this horror site… have seen the film “Twilight”. There I said it. Wait there’s more, I actually didn’t hate the movie. I’m not saying I enjoyed it but I didn’t think it was awful either. Alright the baseball scene was ridiculous but other than that I found it to be at least tolerable. Feels good to finally get that out.

True Blood Beverage In A Store Near You

The "Tru Blood" synthetic blood beverage ads I saw around New York City in 2008 were a pleasingly prankish campaign for the then-new show. I like media that puts a little faith in people to figure it out and look things up. In true fiction-conquers-reality fashion, however, the beverage from the show will soon be in your local store. It won't be synthetic blood, which is sad for wanna-be vampires but good for those of us with taste buds and a gag reflex. From the site:

...Enliven yourself with this uniquely carbonated, slightly tart, lightly sweet blood orange drink.
