In the town of Dillford, humans, vampires and zombies were all living in peace - until the alien apocalypse arrived. Now three teenagers - one human, one vampire, and one zombie - have to team up to figure out how to get rid of the visitors.
In 1967, strait-laced exploitation movie king Roger Corman embarks on a life-changing attempt to capture the psychedelic world of LSD on film by taking a "trip" himself, abetted by Jack Nicholson, Peter Fonda and Dennis Hopper.

However, fate occurs and Evelyn is killed in a freak accident. A couple months have passed and Max meets his dream girl, Olivia (Daddario).

In jest, the conversation between Max and his brother about Evelyn, it is stated that she isn't a vampire. Evelyn - Ashley Greene played Alice, a vampire in The Twilight Saga. See more »
At one point early in the movie, Evelyn tells Max he should "replace those incandescent tubes, and get some compact fluorescents". The bulbs shown are in fact fluorescent tubes (not incandescent), and compact fluorescent bulbs would not work in that type of fixture. See more »
I'll let Evelyn eat me, turn me into one of the living dead, and we can rot unhappily ever after.

A scene is shown after the credits. It shows the use of a special effect. See more »
Not exactly of course, although this does feel like its aimed at a specific audience. Some might feel it's a bit too soft for them and that it feeds too many clichés throughout, but that would take all the fun out of it, if you'd reduce it to that. I understand that that's how some will feel (or felt) after watching this.
You missed out on a fun ride though. Yes you know where this is going, from start to finish, but it's fun to watch. Anton Yelcin seems to have a soft spot for the fantastic/light horror entertainment, which is a nice thing. Dante is an experienced director to say the least and he knows how to mix humor with some violence. It might not always work, but when it does (combined with the acting) it's funny
