Disney Channel Staking Claim to My Babysitter’s a Vampire

Watching the trailer for the Canadian-produced TV movie My Babysitter’s a Vampire (making its American premiere Friday on the Disney Channel), the most glaring thing I couldn’t wrap my head around is why a kid that far in his teens still needs a babysitter – a babysitter that looks to be the same age as him.

Is this boy a juvenile delinquent? Is he a total sissy? Are his parents super overprotective? What’s the deal? And is it really a good idea to pair a teenage boy almost assuredly experiencing hormonal overdrive with a really cute girl of an appropriate age for him to engage in the sort of carnal activity the adult film world has taught me always happens whenever an attractive babysitter is hired? That doesn’t seem right at all. Same reason I think it should be illegal for women to order pizza or hire handymen; I know what’s really going to happen after they answer the door.

Anyway, because I’m lazy, and because this a Disney movie I really don’t give a spit about, here’s the press release to better explain My Babysitter’s a Vampire:

My Babysitter’s a Vampire, a comedic spin on pop culture vampires and scary movies in general, tells the story of three teens who believe their new babysitter is a real bloodsucking creature of the night — and it’s now up to them to rid their sleepy little town of the menace. The movie premieres FRIDAY, JUNE 10 (7:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel. Produced by Fresh TV and distributed by FremantleMedia Enterprises (FME), it will usher in a summer series premiering Monday, June 27 (7:00 p.m., ET/PT).

In the movie, geeky 14-year old Ethan (played by Matthew Knight) is left to babysit his younger sister, Jane (played by Ella Jonas Farlinger), with his best friend Benny (played by Atticus Mitchell). But after Ethan inadvertently puts Jane in harm’s way, his parents hire a professional sitter, the beautiful yet mysterious 17-year-old Sarah (played by Vanessa Morgan), who, unbeknownst to them, is actually a fledgling vampire.

When the boys discover Sarah’s secret, she enlists their help in stopping her vampire ex-boyfriend, Jesse, from taking over their town, Whitechapel. Along the way they discover that Whitechapel holds a few secrets of its own and that they themselves might actually even have supernatural powers. When fans of the newest vampire movie “Dusk 3” gather for its premiere, Jesse and his clan of followers plan their vengeance on Whitechapel that night, and only Sarah, Ethan and Benny can stop them from destroying their town.

The story was created by the award-winning team of Tom McGillis and Jennifer Pertsch, with screenplay by Tim Burns. My Babysitter’s a Vampire was developed by Fresh TV in association with Teletoon. Executive producers are Tom McGillis, Jennifer Pertsch, Brian Irving and George Elliott, as well as FME’s Sander Schwartz and Bob Higgins.

But will My Babysitter’s a Vampire be as good as My Best Friend is a Vampire, My Grandpa is a Vampire, My Son, The Vampire, or I Bought a Vampire Motorcycle? If you’re Canadian, then you probably already know the answer. We Americans will have to wait and find out this Friday on Disney.

Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation – First Trailer and Artwork!

Published

on

As a fan of flicks like Mad Monster Party, I was surprisingly pleased with the last two Hotel Transylvania affairs. For my money you can put the classic monsters in just about anything, and I’ll watch it happily, and these animated features feel like a natural progression of the 1967 Rankin and Bass classic. Which is why I’m looking forward to Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation, and if you are too, check out the film’s new trailer and poster.

Directed by Genndy Tartakovsky, who co-wrote the film with Michael McCullers, Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation features the voices of Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg, Selena Gomez, Kevin James, Fran Drescher, Steve Buscemi, Molly Shannon, David Spade, Keegan-Michael Key, and Mel Brooks.

Look for it in theaters on July 13, 2018.

Synopsis:
In Sony Pictures Animation’s Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation, join our favorite monster family as they embark on a vacation on a luxury monster cruise ship so Drac can take a summer vacation from providing everyone else’s vacation at the hotel. It’s smooth sailing for Drac’s Pack as the monsters indulge in all of the shipboard fun the cruise has to offer, from monster volleyball to exotic excursions, and catching up on their moon tans.

But the dream vacation turns into a nightmare when Mavis realizes Drac has fallen for the mysterious captain of the ship, Ericka, who hides a dangerous secret that could destroy all of monsterkind.

Universal Acquires Riley Sager’s Final Girls for Film Adaptation

Published

on

The “final girl” has long been a staple of the horror film genre, and lately there have been several films with just about that very same title focusing on her and/or them. Well, guess what… there’s another one coming as Deadline is reporting that Universal Pictures has won a bidding battle to option rights for Final Girls, the bestselling novel from Riley Sager that hit shelves this past July.

The movie adaptation will be produced by Anonymous Content’s Nicole Clemens along with Sugar23’s Ashley Zalta and Michael Sugar as that stand-alone company continues to ramp up.

Sager’s book centers on Quincy Carpenter, who 10 years ago as a college student went on vacation to Pine Cottage with five friends and came back alone, the only survivor of a horror movie-scale massacre. In an instant, the press dubbed her a “Final Girl,” coined for the group of similar survivors.

We’ll have more for you on this as it comes.
