I love me a well-done vampire spoof and man did this one nail it. Jacob Fleisher’s comedy is about the lusty, not-so-sexy Vampire Larry who lives with his high school sweetheart. As you can see in the first episode (video below), it takes the first Twilight novel/movie and shakes it up a bit by saying “hey, what if Bella and Edward stayed together, but he was a douche.” It takes out the cutesy romance and adds in the laughs.
The performance and jokes in the Intercourse With A Vampire series are obviously super cheesy, but then what spoof isn’t? Some episodes are better than others for sure, you’ve got the cliché and boring jokes and then a few entertaining ones like in the third episode when Tracy sees Vampire Larry for the first time. He smoothly glides down the high school hallway, his hair blowing in the wind. Then a cut to reveal Vampire Larry being pulled along on a skateboard while some chick holds a fan up to his face. Har har.
But don’t worry Twilight fans; this comedy doesn’t just mock Twilight. The title itself is a reference to Anne Rice’s Interview with a Vampire. The show also has a few True Blood and Let the Right One In gags. I will admit though, the majority of the jokes are based off of Twilight.
But when it comes to Twilight jokes I think blogger Michael Neal hit it dead on,
“If someone out there really wants to make a funny comedy based on Twilight then just adapt the fourth novel “Breaking Dawn.“ You know, the one where Edward has sex with Bella until she is rendered unconscious, then knocks her up, then the baby develops telepathy in the womb, then Edward performs a C-section with his fangs (HIS FANGS), and then Jacob, the werewolf, falls in love with Bella’s infant daughter.”
