Written, Directed by (and starring) Rob Stefaniuk, this Vampire comedy follows the struggling not-so-impressive band “The Winners” along their quest for fame and fortune. Stefaniuk plays the lead plays the lead singer and guitarist, Joey and the rest of the band is made by Jennifer (Jessica Pare), Tyler (Paul Anthony), Sam (Mike Lobel) and their roadie Hugo (Chris Ratz). The band has been trying to make a name for themselves for over ten years, and this year Joey is convinced that the band’s dream will happen. After a set one night, Jennifer decides to party with a couple of Goth looking dudes she meets (Alice Cooper cameos as a goth-type bartender) while the rest of the band warns her against it. They tell her that if she doesn’t show up the next day for their tour that they’ll leave her behind. She goes anyway, and ends up at party full of rock-star vampires. Come morning, Jennifer is a no-show and the band heads off without her. Jennifer shows up later at their gig and they notice there is something different about her. Of course, they hadn’t noticed before because before she wasn’t a vampire. On this same night, we meet Van Helsing (played by Malcolm McDowell), an aging vampire hunter. And, thus the story begins, but with a comedic stab at the age old tale. The band partakes in Jennifer’s new lifestyle and the next thing you know, the band is wildly popular and riding along in the fast lane as well as feasting on groupies after the show. Joey, however is torn between what he knows is morally right and the sudden celebrity status the band has attained. In the end, he decides he will do what’s right, regardless of the sacrifice. Also in the film you will find cameo appearances by Cooper, his daughter Calico, Moby, Henry Rollins and Iggy Pop.
