E1 Reveals the Special Features for Suck’s DVD and Blu-ray Release

We’ve known for a while now that E1 will be releasing Suck, a rock & roll vampire spoof, on Blu-ray and DVD this September 28th, and now the picture is a bit clearer as to what types of extras will be included.

From the Press Release:
Fresh off of a series of theatrical screenings across the country, SUCK follows a bottom-shelf bar band that’ll do anything for a record deal. After a life-changing encounter with a vampire, they rocket to stardom only to discover that fame and fortune are not all they are cracked up to be. Featuring an all-star ensemble, riotous cameos from rock icons along with a killer soundtrack – and arriving while our culture is transfixed by all things vampiric – SUCK is sure to be devoured by horror lovers and music fans alike, when the DVD and Blu-ray versions ($24.98 SRP each) are unleashed on September 28.

The Winners are a go-nowhere rock band, living out of the back of a hearse, which is also doubling as their “tour van.” When their disgruntled manager (Dave Foley, “NewsRadio”, “The Kids in the Hall”) tells them that they are getting “long in the tooth,” he doesn’t know that his words are truly prophetic. During a road trip, however, their humdrum image radically changes after bass player Jennifer (Jessica Paré, Hot Tub Time Machine, Wicker Park), disappears one night with a hip, goth vampire (played by Dimitri Coats of the band Burning Brides). Shortly thereafter she emerges, lacking more pigment than usual, but possessing a new sexually-charged charisma that drives the audiences wild.

As the band members succumb one by one to blood lust, their new “gimmick” launches them into the limelight. Following an incident on a national radio show with “Rock’n Roger” (Henry Rollins), they hit mega-stardom beyond their wildest dreams. But fame comes with a price as Joey (Rob Stefaniuk), the front man, is haunted by a sinister bartender (Alice Cooper), who turns out to be much more. Meanwhile, a legendary vampire hunter, Eddie Van Helsig (Malcolm McDowell, Halloween, “Entourage”, A Clockwork Orange), is tracking them down, despite his fear of the dark. When a veteran music producer (Iggy Pop) calls them on becoming a vampire freak show, they begin to realize that the thirst for fame may not be worth the price of their souls.

A wild ride down the highway to hell, SUCK also boasts a soundtrack that includes Iggy Pop’s, “TVeye” and “Success”; Alice Cooper’s, “I am a Spider”; Lou Reed’s Velvet Underground’s “Sweet Nuthin”; David Bowie’s, “Here Comes the Night” and The Rolling Stones, “Sympathy for the Devil.”

The DVD and Blu-ray editions of SUCK both include a mesmerizing collection of extras, including:

  • The comprehensive making-of featurette “Down to the Crossroads or: How to Make a Movie SUCK”
  • An audio commentary track
  • Burning Bride’s music video for “Flesh and Bone”
  • The DVD for SUCK is presented in 16×9 anamorphic widescreen with 5.1 Surround Sound. On Blu-ray, the film is presented with DTS-HD Master Audio. Both releases include English SDH Subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing.
