Rock music and horror go hand-in-hand, like comedy and horror. Sometimes a flick comes along that can give us all three! Enter Suck, the new vampire-comedy from Rob Stefaniuk that is poised to premiere at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival.
Seemingly doomed to road trip doldrums and dives, the band The Winners break their slump when their female bass player disappears one night with a studly, stylin’ vampire. She returns charged with sexual charisma that creates audience frenzy and eventually ensnares the rest of the band. Their “hook” launches them to fame. But fame turns out to be a different kind of Hell than AC/DC promised.
Following an “incident” on a national radio show with “Rockn’ Roger”, The Winners hit mega-stardom beyond their wildest dreams. But Joey is haunted by an eerie bartender with a dark secret. And legendary vampire hunter Eddie Van Helsing is on their tail tracking them down despite his fear of the dark. But when a veteran music producer calls them on becoming a vampire freak show, their rock ’n roll bubble bursts.
Look for more on the film, which features Iggy Pop, Moby, Alice Cooper, Henry Rollins, and Malcolm McDowell, soon. Check out the trailer below courtesy of Twitch.
