We know serious vampire films like “Nosferatu”, “Dracula”, or “Blade”. But there are also more quirky vampire movies. Sometimes real good comedies, sometimes girls who still make people laugh.
With its title, Vampire Academy sets the tone. Adapted from the first novel in the eponymous literary series by Richelle Mead, it is a fantastic comedy, a sort of improbable encounter between Twilight and Harry potter. We follow two young girls in an academy for vampires. The first, Rose, is responsible for protecting the second, Princess Lissa. After both living among humans for a year, they are brought back to the institution to complete their studies. Obviously in such a place there will be low blows and dangers.
Clearly, Vampire Academy is not a great movie. Corn with a lot of second degree, possibly a little alcohol, the film worn by Zoey Deutch and Lucy Fry can be watched. This did not prevent it from being a big “flop” at the box office with only $ 15 million in the world for a budget of $ 30 million, preventing any sequel from being produced.
Here again, the title gives a small indication of what is in store Lesbian Vampire Killers. Only, unlike Vampire Academy, here we are in a much more fun and quirky comedy. Especially with a British humor that we always appreciate.
We follow two friends on a trip through the English countryside. In the middle of a lost village, they are going to make the unlikely meeting of pretty students. Problem, the village where they are, a curse turns 18 year old girls into vampires. The dream will therefore quickly turn into a nightmare. With in particular James Corden in the cast, the film connects the absurd situations and sufficiently idiotic to entertain us.
The advantage with vampires is that you can transpose them into any universe. With Suck, it’s the middle of rock that welcomes bloodthirsty creatures. A black comedy in which a rock group struggles to break through. Until the day Jennifer, the bassist of the group, is transformed into a vampire. Now charismatic and captivating, it attracts more and more audiences. This is the start of success for the group, but also what could cause their downfall as the corpses start to pile up and Satan himself is going to be involved.
Suck a rather nice B series marked by the presence pretty guests like Alice Cooper, Malcolm McDowell or Iggy Pop, to accompany Rob Stefaniuk and Jessica Paré. Some visual ideas are to be noted in clips and concerts sequences, and the soundtrack takes us in a pop rock style. old school.
Abraham Lincoln is a great American figure since he is the 16th President of the United States between 1861 and 1865. But, what if among his many functions he had also been a vampire hunter? This is what Seth Grahame-Smith imagined in his novel, therefore adapted into a film by Timour Bekmambetov. On paper, it looks too big. And yet 20th Century Fox believed it when they released the film in theaters in 2012.
Violent, gory and brutal, Abraham Lincoln, vampire hunter was not a big hit. And this despite a nice casting with, in addition to Benjamin Walker in the main role, the presence of Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Dominic Cooper or Anthony Mackie.
We know what you’re going to say. that Vampires in complete privacy is a great comedy which has nothing to do with the films mentioned above. In a way, we agree. But we are talking about “improbable” films here. And for once, before Taika Waititi, we never imagined seeing one day the daily life of vampires be immortalized by a film crew.
With his mock documentary, the director has done a lot. He signs a film, basically, totally absurd but which functions precisely by the shift from the usual image of vampires. Clearly the movie on this list that will make you laugh the most. At least voluntarily …
