Movie Info

A bottom-shelf bar band gets a second shot at the big time when they're transformed into vampires and start to develop a loyal following. Joey (Rob Stefaniuk) fronts The Winners, a go-nowhere rock group accustomed to playing empty bowling alleys and deserted bars. They've never had a hit, and their manager Jeff (Dave Foley) voids them like the plague. Dumped by his girlfriend and advised by a sinister bartender (Alice Cooper) to simply snuff it, Joey keeps plugging away at his dreams until the one fateful night when everything changes. Hours after disappearing to an after party with a creepy goth guy (Dimitri Coats), sexy bass player Jennifer (Jessica Paré) shows up lacking more pigment than usual. Before long the Winners are dining on groupies, and dominating the charts. But their success has come at a particularly high price, and when Joey has the opportunity to set things right, he prepares to make the biggest decision of his life. Also featuring Henry Rollins, Iggy Pop, Moby, and Malcolm McDowell. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

  • [Not] to be confused with the current Twilight-glomming insta-spoof Vampires Suck -- but that doesn't mean it's an altogether sharper comedy, either.

  • An indie-rock-scene satire (plus vampires) whose songlist vastly outweighs its laugh (let alone scare) quotient.

  • Stefaniuk's directorial strengths lie in his creation of aesthetic...and mood. When the film is not self-conscious, it is extremely funny and while the subtext is noticeable, it's not overwhelming.

  • Like the obscure Vampire musical, ROCKULA- but, you know-good.

  • Cameos from the likes of Alice Cooper, Henry Rollins, Moby, Iggy Pop, and Alex Lifeson would seem to indicate that this is something to watch...instead, they clue us in that these no-longer-young rockers will apparently do anything for a buck.

  • A weeknight rental for those who can appreciate material both broadly goofy and amusingly gory.

    Rob Stafaniuk creates these movies like Phil the Alien and now Suck which are good but not great. There are good laughs but nothing terribly memorable. It will be interesting to see if he can piece together something that rises out of the "just okay" category.

    Hilarious! In hopes of landing a recording deal and achieving fame, an unknown rock band plays at various venues in parts of Canada and northeastern US. When a key member of the band becomes a vampire, the fellow band mates begin to ponder their own mortal existences as the rise of 'vampirism' infatuation becomes highly popular. Rob Stefaniuk, Jessica Paré, Paul Anthony, Mike Lobel, Chris Ratz, Malcolm McDowell, Dave Foley, Iggy Pop, Alice Cooper, Henry Rollins, Moby, and Dimitri Coats. Worthy!

    Oh so stupid funny. What's not to like? Rollicking fun with cameos by Alice Cooper, Henry Rollins, Iggy Pop, etc. Campy rock horror flick. I really liked the songs, too.
