Vampires Really Do Suck!

On Tuesday, 20th Century Fox threw a Vampires Suck release party at the Dave & Buster’s at Discover Mills. In case you couldn’t deduce from its title, the film’s a riff on the Twilight series and the fanaticism the franchise has inspired.

Twilight is about a girl choosing between necrophilia and bestiality — between a dead guy or a dog,” said Jeff Davis, who works at Netherworld Haunted House, which co-hosted the event. “ …and somehow parents let their children watch. We don’t really get it either.”

It may not have been the intention, but based on what we saw at the party, Vampires Suck seems to be helping the trend more than hurting it.

Even some Twi-hards couldn’t resist the parody and came out the party. Twenty-three-year-old Katie Quinn from Lawrenceville, for instance, moonlights as Bella Swan. Quinn surfs the web to track down Bella’s outfits and stocks up. Quinn mentioned she currently has four complete outfits — with jewelry — and some miscellaneous shirts, dresses, and other articles of clothing. It doesn’t stop there; her bedroom set down to the candles and action figures is copied straight from the Twilight films.

“I’m a Twi-hard, but if I can’t make fun of it, then what’s the point?”, she explains.

Indeed. Now where can we get one of those “Team I don’t give a @!*#” t-shirts.

Vampires Suck opens Friday, August 20 at area theaters.
