I was pleasantly surprised by Rob Stefaniuk's vampire comedy Suck at SXSW (my review). I, like many people, was already flirting with vampire fatigue, and horror comedies are hit and miss as it is, but I actually thought the writer-director-star mixed the two quite while. So I'm glad to see the Canadian-born film get a decent release here in the US of A thanks to Fangoria, Entertainment One and D&E Entertainment.

The trio of sponsors have released where precisely Suck will be playing come this September 2nd and it looks like they're going to be giving it a commendable run. It's not opening in a huge number of theaters, but they're definitely spread pretty far around the nation, so hopefully a theater near you has picked it up.

As for what Suck is all about, from Fangoria: "Written/directed by and starring Rob Stefaniuk, Suck follows a down-and-out rock band, ironically known as The Winners, who are desperately seeking a record deal and will do anything to make it big. After a life-changing encounter with a notorious bloodsucker (Dimitri Coats as Queeny), they rocket to stardom, only to discover that fame and fortune are not all they are cracked up to be. As their fanbase grows, the Winners soon find themselves stalked by creepy producers, wild groupies and vampire hunter Eddie Van Helsing (genre legend Malcolm McDowell). For these rockers, fame becomes a fate worse than death."
