year 3 day 131

movie: Vamp U
starring: Gary Cole, Adam Johnson

plot:A centuries old vampire currently working as a history professor, is unable to make his fangs extend. The guilt of having killed the love of his life 300 years before is keeping him from being able. That is until he meets a young student whom he starts an affair with, and accidentally turns into a vampire. He then learns that she is the daughter of his long lost love, who herself had been accidentally turned into a vampire when he bit her. The trouble then starts as the new vamp plots to turn half the university campus into more vamps.

This had me laughing out loud for most of it. Twilight is a running theme in this, as the Gary Cole character is obsessed with the books. ("No I marked the page, when exposed to sunlight they sparkle") I love the Wayne Gretzky stuff...the lead character is constantly being asked if he was named after the hockey player.

I did not escape my notice that once someone is vamped, they end up looking like a goth kid, or that we only ever see female vampires other then the Johnson character.

This is one of those movies that if you liked the original Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie or Lesbian Vampire Killers for that matter, you will dig this.
