The Twilight books were a phenomenon that lasted for an entire generation. Young adult supernatural romance, it dealt with a young girl having to choose between a vampire and a werewolf, both of which she finds when she moves back in with her dad. The hit book series eventually led to a series of movies, which launched some careers and helped to stop others dead in their tracks. However, due to the low quality of the writing and the entire community of ridicule built up around Twilight like fire breaks, another movie was made. That movie is Vampires Suck, a spoof of all things Twilight. Vampires Suck follows, more or less, the plot of Twilight. The same girl moves to the same rainy town and meets the same two supernatural boys. However, every trope and formula of the book series is mixed up and taken to extremes, turning a series that many people already found ridiculous into something outright slapstick. Whether it's the overly sexualized virgin depicted in bondage lingerie, the immovable hair of the lead vampire, or the rabid fan girls that will beat each other with bats and brass knuckles over which leading man is better, the film captures it all. While Vampires Suck succeeds at satirizing both Twilight culture and the fan culture that surrounds the books and films, it is not subtle about it. This spoof is more about pies in the face and guys taking off their shirts for no good reason than it is about subtle humor and puns. Audiences that wanted a punch in the eye to a fan base, and who generally were looking for something making fun of modern supernatural romance, as well as all the tropes in teen romance in general, are likely to find at least a few jokes and sight gags that they can really get behind. It's like Scary Movie if the franchise took on a young adult series. That said, comedy like horror is a very delicate thing and it can be broken into pieces just like that. And just how different people find different things scary, soo too will different people find different things funny. For die hard fans of the series for instance, there's very little in Vampires Suck to laugh about. For those that know a joke isn't necessarily funny because of the actual lines of text, but rather because of the huge deal that people can make out of a series, the film offers quite a few chuckles.

Description
The Twilight books were a phenomenon that lasted for an entire generation.
