They're not scary. Not sexy. Not trendy. Just Belgian.
Vincent Lannoo's Vampires is the This Is Spinal Tap of vampire films, the 'true' story of a clan of vampires trying to hold their family together and get along with the neighbors. Dad seems to be channeling Bela Lugosi. Mom's a little bit off. Throw a rebellious son and a daughter pining for her lost mortality into the mix and it's a recipe for family discord. Add a bewildered documentary crew and things are bound to get a little chaotic. Vampires is a hilarious re-imagining of the vampire mythos, a poke in the eye to both the glamour of Lestat and the glittery teen angst of Twilight.
