The Vampire's Assistant  

Posted by: Isabel in , ,

A boy unknowingly breaks a 200-year-old truce between two warring factions of vampires. 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 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 turns him into something, well, bloodthirsty.

I was expecting something a little different with this movie. I was expecting a little more screw ball comedy. Like poking fun at all the vampire movies.

It’s about two sets of vampires. Vampires who drink from humans but don’t kill them. Vampineze, vampires who enjoy killing humans for their blood.

The plot is as follows: Two BFFS, steve and Darrin go to a freak show. Steve tries to get the vampire to turn him. Vampire Krepsley says Steve’s blood is evil. Darrin witness the convo while hiding in the closet. He’s attempting to steal Krepsley’s pet spider Lady Octa.

Spider bits Steve. Darrin asks for antidote. Krepsley says sure in exchange you become half vampire. Steve gets all upset, gets turned into a vampire and becomes vampineze. Darrin lives with the freaks in their camp. The BFF’s fight. War has started between vampire and vampineze!

The movie was all right. J. C. Reilly looked like he was trying really hard not to laugh and it just seemed… not natural at all. And I knew the BFF’s Daren and Steve would need to face up when they looked in the book of shadows. Or whatever it was called.

I thought John C Reilly was hilarious in this movie. But yeah, that's really the only good thing about it.
