Storyline

Chased out of the old world, the dark vampire lord Giovanni flees to the American southwest where he sets up a new brood. Longshank, Brittan's premier vampire slayer follows him here, and in a final confrontation in the Arizona desert both are killed. A hundred years later Melissa, a gorgeous, goth, lesbian college student, is obsessed with becoming a vampire and escaping her terrible home life. Along with her four friends, Ted, Liz, Mona, and Kent, she regularly conducts ceremonies where she tries to commune with dark forces. When she buys an old, evil book at a creepy garage sale she finally has the key she has been searching for. Following her dreams of Giovanni and a map in the book the five friends hike out to "Massacre Lane" and finally summon up some real vampires. Written by Aaron Neal Trout

Is there anything that isn't bad about this movie?
24 October 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After about 30 seconds thought, I immediately concluded, no! I saw Vampegeddon out of curiosity and I do like vampire and horror movies. But nothing about Vampegeddon worked, it really is one of the worst of its kind.

Where to begin with perhaps my mini-novel on why Vampegeddon stank as badly as it did? Let's start with the technical values. If there is a word to best describe the technical side of Vampegeddon, amateurish would come to mind in an instant, and I assure you that is being generous. The scenery is the least of the problems in this regard as it wasn't that bad. The sad thing is, that that is little consolation as you couldn't enjoy it. The editing was a large problem of why, it is extremely sloppy and has the feel of playing time in (very) slow-motion. The sloppiness of the editing not only cheapens the film but severely undermines any suspense, tension or scare-factor levels Vampegeddon aimed to have. The effects are slipshod at best, looking as if the makers were aiming for quantity rather than quality. There is a lesson to be learnt, sometimes less is more. And then there is the make-up, which is appalling, I've rarely seen make-up this bad actually with the vampires looking like bad Uncle Fester clones, and the clichéd costumes evoked the very same reaction.

Even with bad production values, you'd hope that there'd be redeeming qualities elsewhere. Sadly, that was not the case with Vampegeddon. Music has always been a big part of my life and I love it in films when it is good. The music however here is one of many disasters with Vampegeddon, it is not only generic and over-bearing but it didn't fit the tone of the movie at all and this really takes away from any atmosphere. This said, there isn't much of an atmosphere here in the first place. The gore is really artificial, blood for instance could easily have been tomato ketchup or something, and the gore is used in a very unimaginative way. Come to think of it, there are also no scares, excitement or thrills, the killings left me bored out of mind in alternative to biting my nails.

Instead it is replaced by many other things that should fill a book titled "100 Ways in NOT to make a film". I cannot count the number of times I was rolling my eyes at the sheer idiocy of the dialogue. Lines like "they're (insert obscenity) maniacs" and "and lesbians too" are enough to numb the mind. Vampegeddon is only about an hour and a quarter, but watching it you could have sworn it was longer. And that is entirely because of the story, and the fact that it is unoriginal is not the problem. Everything feels so clumsy, too random and as a matter too paper-thin to be counted as predictable. The garage sale seemed to be there for no reason, there are people that wander in and out of the story, often for no reason, and there are things like Melissa saying that she needs to become a vampire that are given no explanation. The fight sequences are more slapstick comedy than anything else, and made even worse by the editing.

If you are looking for any likable characters, I'd suggest you look elsewhere. There isn't an ounce of likability in any of these characters, they are both stock and insufferably annoying. Melissa is the absolute worst, even in her very first scene you already can't stand the sight of her. And need I mention that they are stereotypical as well, that mayn't be so bad but it's the way these stereotypes are treated in Vampegeddon that are going to infuriate people. This is particularly true with Goths being portrayed as naive and dumb. And to put the final nail in the coffin(pun intended) the acting- and direction for that matter- is so terrible that you'd call it non-existent. Jacqueline Smith as Liz is the least bad, she is somewhat tolerable, but that's it. Everybody else, especially the actors of Melissa, Giovanni and Igor, is hilariously bad.

Overall, there isn't anything that isn't bad about Vampegeddon, it is one gigantic mess through and through. 0/10 Bethany Cox
