Am I the only one shocked that The Asylum is not getting in on the Twilight bandwagon with a mockbuster? It seems like a no-brainer; yet, here we sit, mockbuster-less. Someone has to pick up the Asylum’s slack, and that’s where Tempe Video’s Splatter Rampage label and writer-director Chris Seaver come in with their horror parody Taintlight.
“Riding the lofty coattails of the international tween sensation, TAINTLIGHT is the tale of Stella, a young girl who falls in love with an ancient, beautifully-behaired bloodsucker named Edgar. They struggle to stay together in the midst of vampire carnage, but a love triangle bubbles up when a Michael Jackson-loving werewolf named Jack comes forward professing his own love for Stella. Meanwhile, a rival group of “real” vampires led by the evil Razor McBleed are on the prowl, looking to put the stake to Edgar so they can feast on Stella and the rest of Bonejack Heights in this over-the-top horror parody with tongue firmly in cheek!”
Tempe Video will be releasing Taintlight upon the world on the breaking dawn of November 17th. DVD extras will include an audio commentary track with the cast and crew, trailer for other Splatter Rampage flicks, and a 25-minute long behind-the-scenes featurette (nearly half the length of the movie itself that only runs 65 minutes).
But can a parody of Twilight possibly be funnier than the real thing?
