This is one of the best Canadian movies I’ve ever seen. It’s not going to win an Oscar, but it was great nonetheless. It’s about a struggling rock band whose hot female bass player becomes a vampire. Her abilities begin drawing notice of the few fans attending the gigs and suddenly the band’s popularity explodes.
This is a very tongue-in-cheek comedy about both vampires and the music industry. It’s got a lot of laughs and a lot of inside jokes. A lot of recognizable musicians make excellent cameos (Alice Cooper, Iggy Pop, Henry Rollins and Moby). The story is great, the performances are strong and the music is excellent. Throw the whole vampire thing in there and you have a hit movie.
This film has one of the best vampire deaths ever. You’ll have to see it to judge for yourself.
