“Chicks dig me,” sneers Beef (Moby), the shaven-headed self-proclaimed “biggest rock star in Buffalo” as he pushes aside Hugo (Chris Ratz), the spindly roadie for down-and-out rock band The Winners. Marching to his doom down a filthy corridor leading to the dimly lit motel room where the cold white embrace of Jennifer (Jessica Paré), The Winners’ incandescently beautiful bass player, awaits him, Beef will find that while chicks may dig him, this one will love him to death.
And even beyond death. As the phrase goes, rock and roll is indeed a vicious game.
This week, filming will wrap on the Toronto set of Capri Films’ Suck, with Fango having enjoyed unprecedented access, totaling 17 days of the 20-day shoot. Writer/director Rob (Phil The Alien) Stefaniuk, who also stars as the band’s frontman Joey, hopes to bypass the curse of “vampire rock »

"They Live" is finding life again.
John Carpenter's cult 1988 film is getting the remake treatment from Universal and studio-based Strike Entertainment, which are in negotiations to acquire the film rights with rights holder Les Mougins.
The original film, part sci-fi thriller and part social satire, told the story of a down-on-his-luck construction worker (Roddy Piper) who discovers glasses that let him see aliens walking among us and controlling humanity. The man races against the clock to find a way to stop them.
The movie is known for a fight scene that lasts 5 1/2 minutes and for the line, "I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass ... and I'm all out of bubblegum."
No writer is on board.

Gotta make this a quick one. Famous horror author Joe Knetter and his stunt ass are hitting SoCal this weekend so this Woman needs her rest. Lord knows what manner of mayhem awaits.
A good chunk of the news from the week of November 8-14, 2008, came from Afm, where more genre projects than you can shake a stick at were bought and sold. Andrew tells us his opinion of a dozen features he managed to squeeze in at the event here. Several, like The Children, Pontypool, and Blood River sound very promising indeed!
Despite our hunger for more fresh indies like those coming out of Afm, the studio remake machine keeps chugging along, and one that I plan to keep tabs on is David Ondaatje's redux of Hitchcock's The Lodger. It's Ondaatje's feature debut, but considering that he previously helmed a documentary called Undressing Hitchcock, I have a feeling »

Movies, like fashion or technology, is cyclical. They like their fads as much as any other business. So now that we've enjoyed a decade of superhero movies, where to go next? With True Blood being a steady mainstay at HBO (Season 2 a go) and Twilight set to kick off a new movie franchise, we might be on the verge of a vampire comeback. This might be the first of many: The Hollywood Reporter reveals an indie vampire comedy called Suck, which features appearances by Alice Cooper, Iggy Pop, Henry Rollins, Moby and Carol Pope.

Liv Tyler clone hottie Jessica Pare along with Malcolm McDowell and Dave Foley have joined a bevy of rockers in the form of Moby, Iggy Pop, Alice Cooper, Henry Rollins and Carol Pope for the vampire comedy Suck. The story follows some rock'n'roll wannabes who are looking for fame and vampires, not necessarily in that order. Pare's role is unknown but she'll no doubt be playing an innocent hottie who gets turned into an undead bloodsucker with an enhanced libido and a penchant for wearing only »

The Hollywood Reporter posts that all of the above have signed on to a new Canadian horror-comedy called, both appropriately and inappropriately -- Suck. From writer/director Rob Stefaniuk (Phil the Alien), the film will follow "rock 'n' roll wannabes in search of fame and vampires." I never realized that the two went together. I mean, after a slew of episodes of True Blood, I'd might believe it if the hunters found vamps during Sex Addicts Anonymous... But then again, if anyone would know how to find the world's vamps, I imagine it would be Alice Cooper. Mixing him with the wonderful Henry, plus Mr. McDowell and Foley sounds downright excellent.
Production begins later this month in Toronto, and »

I’m a huge fan of “Kids in the Hall” so any time I can get a chance to report on a new movie any of those five weirdoes are in on my site, I’m all over it. THR reports that Dave Foley, the Kid who’s been in more genre fare than the others, has joined the eclectic cast of the Canadian horror/comedy Suck.
Malcolm McDowell, Jessica Pare, Moby, Alice Cooper, Henry Rollins and Carol Pope make up the rest of the warm bodies populating Suck, which according to the trade is about rock ‘n roll wannabes in search of fame and vampires. What the hell does that mean?
Rob Stefaniuk wrote and will direct Suck for Capri Films, with shooting set to kick into gear up in Toronto on November 24th. We’ll bring you more updates as we bleed our sources!

These days, TV viewers can't seem to escape Virginia Madsen.
Madsen, who made a splash in movies like "Sideways" and "Candyman," has hit the airwaves to spread the word about a couple of seemingly disparate matters of interest to women -- encouraging them, via a public service announcement, to get involved in the political process, and selling them, via a highly visible multimedia campaign from Grey, on the benefits of a popular, wrinkle-combating drug.
Allergan, manufacturer of Botox, of which Madsen is the face, partnered with the League of Women Voters on an initiative called Freedom of Expression Through Film. Playing off the Botox tagline, the drugmaker calls the public-awareness campaign "dedicated to voter education and self-expression." Madsen played a major role. Beyond the PSA, the actress crisscrossed the country on a 10-city tour this summer on behalf of the 88-year-old nonpartisan League.
