interesting attempt
12 August 2015 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Joey Winner (Stefaniuk) leads his band with bassist Jennifer (Jessica Paré), guitarist Tyler, drummer Sam and their roadie Hugo. Their manager Jeff (Dave Foley) is incompetent. Instead of sleeping in the hearse with the guys, Jennifer stays with weird looking Queeny who turns her into a vampire. The band leaves Montreal for Toronto without her. Joey asks money from his girlfriend Susan who is jealous of Jennifer. Jennifer shows up in Toronto with a different look. Eddie Van Helsing (Malcolm McDowell) is tracking down Queenie and follows the band. The band suddenly begins to get noticed.

Written and directed by Rob Stefaniuk, this has some interesting ideas. However the filmmaking is not sharp enough. It has great actors in this. I don't know how they got McDowell but I'm sure the music legends have something to do with it. I can see what this movie is trying to do. It seems obvious that this needs a music video director's touch to energize the pace. The humor isn't really that good either. The movie is just not sharp enough in any way.
