Plenty of Sinful Satire In ‘The Sins Of Dracula’
A lot… a metric f*ckton even, of movies out there, make fun of recent vampire films, especially Twilight –but truth be told, they’re really asking for it, –but most of these movies aren’t actually making a point of pointing a finger at anything other than the vampire horror genre. That’s why The Sins of Dracula is so refreshing. It’s a vampire satire film that actually pokes fun at the Christian scare flicks, –you know, like Reefer Madness, –where they try to scare you away from drugs or other delinquent behaviors. Not like Jesus Camp, where reasonable people try to scare you with Christians.
A goofy Christian guy named Billy goes with his girlfriend, Channon, a non-Christian and joins her theater group. The leader of the indie theater group, Lou Perdition, has ulterior motives: using a production called “Jonestown Jubilee” to harvest innocent blood to raise Count Dracula from the dead, and build an army of vampire actors. According to the review, the film is actually really funny, and only a few of the jokes are a bit lame or miss the mark. It’ll probably end up on Netflix in the short run, so keep an eye out for it. I know I will.
