New Twilight parody film says ‘Vampires Suck’
By Whitney Milam
HollywoodNews.com: The team behind “Scary Movie”, “Date Movie”, “Epic Movie” and “Disaster Movie” are sending yet another spoof to theaters this August, and let’s just say this one has bite.
“Vampires Suck”, starring Jenn Proske as a beautiful human girl with an inexplicable penchant for lip-biting (oh, hey Kristen Stewart) torn between a sparkling, stalkerish vampire and a clothes-shedding were-Chihuahua (yes, you read that right), hits theaters right in the midst of the summer “Twilight” craze and mercilessly skewers the popular franchise, Ace Showbiz reports. And if the just-released trailer is anything to go by, Twilight isn’t the only target: Lady Gaga, the Jersey Shore cast, and Alice (of Wonderland) all make appearances, too. The supporting cast features comedian Ken Jeong, Anneliese van der Pol, and Matt Lanter.
Fears about whether another such parody movie is really necessary should be at least moderately put to rest by the trailer–there’s an endless amount of spoof-worthy material to choose from in Twilight, after all, and “Vampires Suck” seems to enjoy the challenge, previewing several genuinely funny and clever moments in the process.
What do you think, Twihards and hard-hearted haters alike? Can fans retract their fangs long enough to have some tongue-in-cheek laughs at Twilight’s expense? Or is this a film-going experience best left to those who already enjoy mocking Twilight at every opportunity?
