Vamperifica (2011)

28 December 2011 3:40 PM, PST | Planet Fury | See recent Planet Fury news »

Directed By: Bruce Ornstein

Written by: Bruce Ornstein, Martin Yurkovic

Starring: Martin Yurkovic, Dreama Walker, Creighton James, Bonnie Swencionis, Jeff Ward

It wasn't until I put Vamperifica into my DVD player that I realized I had been avoiding Vampire movies. Somewhere just south of all the blood and sex, Vampire movies became overdone. Of course this is no reason to completely ignore the sub-genre, but it goes without saying that we can expect some truly awful instances of Vampire horror to arise. Lucky for Vamperifica, this isn't entirely the case, as it boasts some truly original vampire development and humor. But is it enough to will me out of my too many vampires coma?

Vamperifica follows Carmen, a flamboyant college student who dreams of being a Broadway star and loves to yell about dirty whores and bitches. He gets a brutal wake-up call however, when two vampires arrive to give him unsettling news. »
