Dead Sucks & Other Upcoming Vampire Films of 2010
Dead Sucks – Dead Sucks is all about Burt the Vampire; he’s suicidal, sunburns easily, and… apparently he’s narcoleptic? At least, that’s what I surmised from the trailer. Dead Sucks looks absolutely hilarious; it’s actually a short fraction of a TV show pilot. So hopefully the guys can drum up enough support, and cash, to turn Dead Sucks into either a film, or a show. If you’re interested in co-producing, or investing in the film, you should send an email to the director: elias @ biffjuggernaut.com.
Dracula: The Undead – Dacre Stoker, a direct descendant of Bram Stoker, and Ian Holt brought us the sequel to Bram Stoker’s Dracula: Dracula, the Undead. The synopsis of the book doesn’t look half bad, though I doubt the writing will have the same early modern English flourish as did its predecessor. But we’re not talking about a book here; we’re talking about a movie! Despite the listings you’ll see on the Internet about this film coming out some time in 2010, I wouldn’t hold my breath for this year just yet. In September, Dacre and Ian claimed to be negotiating with major studios about the film, and told us to expect big news about the movie within the month. Well, September came and went, as did October, and we’ve still yet to hear any definitive news on the project. We’ll keep you posted.
Lost Boys 3 – The only thing scarier than a bunch of Joel Schumaker fans is a bunch of Joel Schumaker fans that make sequels! A great movie, turned into a franchise, –well, that’s the way of things, isn’t it? This movie is supposed to focus mainly on Corey Feldman and Jamison Newlander’s return as the Frog brothers. Edgar and Alan Frog are back to kick some vampire ass; unless Alan Frog is still a vampire? Wasn’t he a vampire in Lost Boys 2? Wait, –what the hell is this movie supposed to be about? How many vampires are in Santa Carla anyway? Somebody call Buffy!
The Vampires of Bloody Island – This movie looks like it took about $200 to make. The difference is, it isn’t micro-budget American horror, it’s micro-budget English horror, –and it’s comedy, so it’s bound to be hilarious. With any luck at all it will be available by the end of this year. “In a crumbling castle clinging to the cliffs of an isolated Cornish island, the vampire Countess Morticia de’Ath (Pamela Kempthorne) is concocting a sinister plan. Standing in her way are two bickering office workers and an enigmatic, vampire-hunting window cleaner, desperately fighting to stop the spread of Morticia’s terrifying vampire army.” Watch the trailer, and enter to win a DVD!
