The Sundance Film Festival kicks off this Thursday in Park City, Utah, which means film lovers are about to discover a whole bevy of indie flicks hoping to be the next “Little Miss Sunshine” or “Blue Valentine” or… “Twilight”?
One film on the Sundance docket that will surely catch the eye of bloodsucker-loving moviegoers is “Vampire,” though upon closer inspection — and a viewing of the below exclusive clip — the film shares precious little in common with “http://moviesblog.mtv.com/tag/twilight/The Twilight Saga.”
Kevin Zegers (“Gossip Girl,” “Transamerica”) stars as Simon, an average guy who’s dedicated to three things: his teaching job, taking care of his apparently mentally imbalanced mother (unless there’s a reason she has all those balloons strapped to her in the clip) and, you know, drinking blood. And so Simon trolls the Internet, looking for girls who are beautiful, shy and suicidal — in other words, the perfect source to get his fix.
Keisha Castle-Hughes (“Nativity Story”), Amanda Plummer (“So I Married an Axe Murderer), Rachel Leigh Cook (“She’s All That”) and Kristin Kreuk (“Smallville”) also star, with Japanese filmmaker
Iwai Shunji at the helm.
