'Vampires Suck'


It can't be a coincidence that this satire from the "Scary Movie" crew hits video the same week as the most recent edition of the "Twilight" franchise.

That series is the all-too-obvious target of the jokes here, as Matt Lanter ("90210") plays an Edward-like bloodsucker - even named Edward - who only has eyes for mortal Becca (Jenn Proske). So does otherworldly Jacob (Chris Riggi), making for a tense triangle ... but one frequently undercut by sight gags and one-liners. Diedrich Bader and Ken Jeong ("The Hangover") also star. DVD extras: deleted scenes; outtakes. ** (PG-13 and unrated versions: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray)
