Universal Studios Home Entertainment has shared some details and artwork for its upcoming DVD and Blu-ray releases of Cirque du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant and we have them for you all bland and uninspired. Much like the film itself.
Look for the film in stores on February 23rd with not a whole hell of a lot going on in terms of extra content. All there is are two quick featurettes — Guide to Becoming a Vampire and Tour du Freak. How exciting! Dig on the artwork below.
Pulled into a fantastic life of misunderstood sideshow freaks and grotesque creatures of the night, one teen will vanish from the safety of a boring existence and fulfill his destiny in a place drawn from nightmares.
14-year-old Darren (Chris Massoglia) was like most kids in his suburban neighborhood. He hung out with his best friend, got decent grades and usually stayed out of trouble. But when he and his buddy stumble upon a traveling freak show, things begin to change inside Darren. That’s the exact moment when a vampire named Larten Crepsley (John C. Reilly) turns him into something, well, bloodthirsty.
Newly undead, he joins the Cirque Du Freak, a touring sideshow filled with monstrous creatures from a snakeboy and a wolfman to a bearded lady (Salma Hayek) and a gigantic barker (Ken Watanabe). As Darren flexes his newfound powers in this dark world, he becomes a treasured pawn between the vampires and their deadlier counterparts. And while trying to survive, one boy will struggle to keep their brewing war from devouring what’s left of his humanity.
