That’s right two vampire movies in two weeks. No, I’m not going all Twilight and shit. And there wasn’t a single sparkly whiny vampire in the mix.
This week we have Suck. Another low budget movie made with a lot of heart. The story revolves around the failing band ironically called The Winners. One night after the show, their hot bass player decides to go off with a creepy guy from the audience. You can see where this is going. Yep, he was vampire and now she’s one too. Now that their bass player has supernatural vampire vixen powers, the band becomes successful. Let the murdering and hilarity begin.
It’s pretty much a standard vampire tale but there plenty of entertaining moments to carry the movie. It had the right amount of snarky humor without being overly campy. It’s worth the time to throw some popcorn in the microwave and pop the top on a couple of brews. And there was a pretty good cast: Alice Cooper, Iggy Pop, Henry Rollins, Dave Foley, Moby and Malcolm McDowell. I ain’t kidding.
Recommendation: Rent it.
