PG-13; 1:22 running time Surprise! "Vampires Suck," actually doesn't. The parody of the first two "Twilight" movies is the usual mixed bag of hits and misses, but with more hits than expected. For those who can't get enough of photogenic teen vampires and werewolves, consider this another helping, albeit basted in mockery. For those who were dragged to those movies, at least here the two are compressed into one 82-minute sulk-and-bite fest. Plenty of gags fall flat, but writer-directors Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, due credit or blame for many recent spoofs ("Date Movie," "Epic Movie," etc.), have tapped the vein more effectively than their norm, with enjoyable details and on-the-mark senseless brutality. Read the full "Vampires Suck" review.
