Synopsis

An encounter with a real vampire (John C Reilly) at a travelling freak show signals the end of life as they know it for grade-A student Darren (Chris Massoglia) and his slacker friend Steve (Josh Hutcherson). In a freakish turn of events, Darren become the good vampire's apprentice while Steve is recruited by their vicious rivals, the vampaneze. Adapted from the first-person novels by Darren Shan, Paul 'American Pie' Weitz's gothic fantasy is a teen-skewed carnival of grotesque fun and fiendish games.
