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

Various shots in the movie are meant to evoke classic rock album covers. Some examples: A shot of the band crossing the street is an homage to The Beatles "Abbey Road." Another shot of the band using a Union Jack flag as a blanket is based on The Who's "The Kids Are Alright." In the border station, the first shot is a nod to Bruce Springsteen's "Born In The USA".

Simply brilliant!
14 January 2011 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

Can a semi-musical vampire movie with a comedic twist ever be good? Rob Stefaniuk proves it can! This Canadian movie starring Rob Stefaniuk and Jessica Pare (... oh wait, you don't know who they are? How about Alice Cooper, Moby, Henry Rollins and Iggy Pop ? They are all in this) mixes all of the things above into a perfect union. I find it hard to describe it without comparing it to other things. It feels like the original Lost Boys found Interview with a Vampire, it looks like a Queens of the Stone Age video, it sounds like a rock concert and the jokes are tasteful and they relate to things without parody, but only good humour.

Bottom line: too cool for words, this film is not even about vampires. The undead condition is only a metaphor for the seduction of success. Best quote: "I'm just here to set you free... again.". It just proves that a good idea and a lot of spirit can make a movie great without the need for explosions and naked women. Watch it! Now!
