New Vampires Suck Movie Poster and Clip
08.07.10 by REELZ
Two fun new items for the upcoming Twilight Saga parody Vampires Suck have been released online. The parody, written by Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, attempts to over-exaggerate Stephenie Meyer's worldwide phenomenon, in what some are sure to consider the funniest movie of the year.
The new poster — complete with a great "Some Sagas Just Won't Die" tagline — shows Matt Lanter (Edward), Jenn Proske (Becca), and Chris Riggi (Jacob) flanked by three Nomad vampires and a comical Lady Gaga knock-off. Edward is sporting a "Team Jacob" T-shirt, while Jacob repays the favor by donning "Team Edward." Becca — looking as morose as ever — stands in the middle of both supernatural creatures, holding a clove of garlic instead of the saga's iconic red apple. Also present is Edward's perfectly coiffed hair, standing at least 6 inches above his head. Robert Pattinson would be proud.
The new 47-second "Pale Guy" movie clip parodies Twilight's famous cafeteria scene where Bella first meets the Cullens. This Vampires Suck version introduces us to the Sullen family, in particular Edward, who Becca describes as "a pale dude, big hair, constipated look". You'll then see him applying make-up and hairspray while walking through the cafeteria, in what is a hilarious play on the real Edward Cullen's remarkable God-like beauty.
Take a look at the new footage below, and let us know your thoughts on the Vampires Suck vs. Twilight Saga debate.
