Storyline

In Montreal, Joey is the lead singer of the struggling band "The Winners", composed by the sexy bass singer Jennifer, the guitarist Tyler, the drummer Sam and the handyman Hugo. Their incompetent and alcoholic manager Jeff is incapable to help them to reach success and they are on the road on tour playing in clubs and bars in Canada and United States of America. After a show in a bar in Montreal, Jennifer, who is also the Joey's former girlfriend, leaves the place with the creepy Queeny, who is a vampire, and they spend the night together. On the next morning, Jennifer does not meet the band and they travel in their hearse to participate in a rock 'n' roll show without her. In the last moment, Jennifer arrives with a different appearance and on the next day they find that their home page had had several hits, all of them with good reviews and compliments to Jennifer. They become famous and Jennifer great audiences to the shows of "The Winners" and one by one, the musicians are turned ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

The scene in which Jennifer hovers over Joey's bed while he sleeps was achieved by turning the camera on its side. A makeshift nightstand and lamp were mounted to a wall, both actors were standing upright and Jessica Paré simply dipped in and out of frame. See more »

Quotes

Joey: How'd you know my name?
Bartender: Oh, I can read your mind.
Joey: Wow. What am I thinking right now?
Bartender: Well, you're thinking "this bartender is crazy!"
Joey: You're good.
Bartender: You're afraid of being a loser for the rest of your life. Too late for you. Too late for the band. I would say you're 30 pounds of junk food and a retail job away from killing yourself. Just a guess.

Fun vampire film with only minor flaws
2 October 2012 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

While trying to hit it big in the independent scene, a band tries to keep their freshly-turned vampire bass-player from killing all those trying to help them while a vampire hunter tries to end her reign of terror once and for all.

In what has become a steady tradition with my watches, what was initially billed as a horror comedy in fact suffered greatly due to the comedy but still came across as rather enjoyable. While the situations itself would be regarded as funny, none of it really is, and it's only the fact that the people are put into those situations does the film seem to be funny, as the endless amount of cameo roles popping up in here provides the other amount of comedy and it's really off-the-mark, not knowing who they are initially until the end credits reveal who was who or just popping up merely to have a part in the film, a far greater offense. There's still a lot of areas where this works nicely, mainly in the scenes of the performances after the transformation that are supposed to show the band getting bigger and bigger with their following and getting the film's really funniest moments from these scenes. The gore isn't bad either, and there's more than expected, and the raucous energy keeps it rolling along quite nicely, so it's still pretty enjoyable, but this one really needed to fix some areas greatly.

Rated R: Graphic Violence, Graphic Language and drug use.
