Synopsis

VAMPIRES combines the darkly satiric edge of all-time cult classic MAN BITES DOG with a fresh and funny take on the much-loved conventions of the vampire film. After a few failed attempts (costing the lives of some crew members) a TV crew interviews a family of malcontent vampires for a documentary. George and Bertha are your classic modern day parents, remote and out of touch with their kids’ lives, bourgeois-boring, and, of course, consummate drinkers of human blood. Their teenage daughter Grace is on a fast track to self-destruction while their errant son Samson carries on like a blood-sucking Casanova, leaving a trail of bodies in his wake. Hilarious and disquieting in equal measure.

"Far more credible than Twilight’s vampire family...At times it can be very disturbing, at other times, laugh-out loud funny."
