I hate to sound like an old fogy, but boy, they sure don’t make ‘em like they used to. And by ‘em, I mean spoof movies in the Zucker mold (specifically Airplane and The Naked Gun) that were amusing enough at the time, but in retrospect have come to seem like small miracles in comparison with the films that they have inspired. Vampire Party is just one of those films, and it does absolutely nothing to better the image of the parody film as lazy, uninspired, and more irritating than funny. But unlike Scary Movie, Scary Movie 2, Scary Movie 3, Scary Movie 4, Date Movie, Epic Movie, Disaster Movie, and Superhero Movie, this is from France.
Sam (Patrick Mille), Alice (Frederique Bel), and Prune (Julie Fournier) are young people who (as is clearly established in the opening narration, perhaps the only very French touch in the whole movie) love to party. »

According to a friend who is, apparently, more connected within the bowels of the horror news industry than I am, the following trailer has been making the rounds online since late last year. I guess I’m late the party — no pun intended — because I’ve never heard of Stephen Cafiero and Vincent Lobelle’s 2008 French horror/comedy “Vampire Party” until today. And despite the language barrier that exists between myself and the endlessly amusing trailer posted below, I’m actually kind of jazzed about it’s upcoming November 17th release date, which comes courtesy of Dark Sky Films. As it turns out, I have absolutely nothing to do that day. Coincidence? Not really. Then again, I’m not exactly a social butterfly, either. I suppose that goes without saying. Here’s what it’s all about: Best friends and hardcore partiers Sam (Patrick Mille), Alice (Frédérique Bel), and Prune »
We all love parties, and what could be more fun than one thrown by a group of vampires? We'll all find out come November 17th when Dark Sky Films releases the French horror/comedy Vampire Party (Les dents de la nuit) onto DVD. The film was co-directed by first-timers (according to IMDb) Stephen Cafiero and Vincent Lobelle, who also co-wrote the script with Jean-Patrick Benes and Allan Mauduit.
Here's the official synopsis from Amazon: Best friends and hardcore partiers Sam (Patrick Mille), Alice (Frédérique Bel), and Prune (Julie Fournier) have scored invitations to Medici Night, the legendary VIP bash held every year at a remote castle. But when they discover that this wild party is being thrown by an elite race of blood-crazed vampires, they'll have to stake, stab, slice, bludgeon, and blast their way out of a soiree where the hosts are thirsty and the bar is now open. »

Rating: 7 out of 10
From it's Fearless Vampire Killers inspired opening credits onwards Stephen Cafiero and Vincent Lobelle's French vampire comedy keeps it's tongue firmly in cheek. An 'Airplane!' style spoof film with around 10 jokes a minute it cannot fail to entertain, despite several cringe inducing moments of complete stupidity. A deliberately clichéd plot sees three friends invited to a private party held in a spooky castle in the countryside. Sam Polisatokoniminsky (Patrick Mille) is a party animal who gets his kicks any which way he can, his friend Alice (Frédérique Bel) is a gorgeous, blonde aerobics instructor and Prune (Julie Fournier), is a tough minded business woman with a wild streak. After meeting a mysterious stranger (is there any other kind?) at a bar, they manage »
