Even the undead-obsessed may have a hard time sinking their fangs into 'Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant,' the underwhelming first offering of yet another series of vampire books. While critics seem to agree that the film is colorfully staged, they've been less than kind in their assessment of the directing and acting. Opinion is divided on whether star John C. Reilly, as an eccentric vampire who reigns over the titular Cirque du Freak, saves the film or goes down with the ship. If this is your cup of blood will depend on whether you're in the mood for a few laughs and an irreverent approach to bloodsuckers, rather than scares and suspense. Check out reviews below.
