Movie Monday: Suck

Posted by Rosepixie on April 5, 2010

This is a trailer for the movie Suck and was pointed out to me by a friend of mine.

I generally dislike vampires.   I don’t think they’re sexy or romantic or alluring.  They are creepy and undead and murderers.  Sorry, but that’s not attractive.  I think that’s part of why this movie trailer works for me – it kind of makes fun of the “vampires are sexy” thing and pushes the fact that when you fantasize about them you have to pretty much ignore the gross blood-sucking part away right into your face.

The shot of the girl (sadly, she is the token girl, which is annoying) performing with her hair flowing and light around her so that she looks almost magically pretty feels kind of like a cheap shot at the sparkling vampires of the Twilight Saga.  All of the various celebrities popping up in odd roles makes the movie appear even more intriguing (and assures the audience that it will have a fantastic soundtrack, no matter how bad the fictional band in the movie might be).

This trailer does a great job setting out what the tone of the movie will be, what it’s about and what kind of celebrity appearances you can expect.  It looks fun, silly and entertaining.  I think this trailer does a great job.  I have no idea if the movie will be so good, but at least they did a great job on their trailer!
