Even if you’re not familiar with Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, chances are you’ll be familiar with their work. As ‘2 of the 6 writers of Scary Movie‘, they’ve exploited their inexplicable success rate at the box office to produce several of the worst films of all time, including Meet the Spartans and the ‘Movie‘ movies: Date, Epic and Disaster.
Now they’ve turned their attention to the vampire craze and am I insane or does Vampires Suck not actually look that bad?
I mean, don’t get me wrong, it looks very bad. But a few moments in the trailer sort of almost maybe made me smile, and the references to Lady Gaga and Jersey Shore seem impossibly relevant compared to some of the stuff in Disaster Movie. Apart from anything else, the fact that it adheres to most of our guide to Twilight shows that they were at least paying attention during New Moon, which is more than I could manage.
