While backpacking across the country, bickering gay couple Cary and Vogel decide to speed up their trek by hitchhiking instead. That s when fate brings them Brewster, a sexually-confused trucker who picks the pair up on his way to delivering a shipment of coffins. After a few strokes of bad luck, the mismatched trio ends up lost and broken down in an abandoned junkyard. Though surviving a night of petty fights and sexual tension seems tough enough, the nightmare is only just getting started as strange noises in the back of the truck reveal the presence of five bloodthirsty vampires...
Mark Bessenger s directorial debut puts a smart, sexually charged spin on a genre that s been all but sucked dry. With buckets of blood, biting humor, and horrific thrills that pay homage to bloodsucker classics, Bite Marks is a fast-paced, sharp-tongued horror comedy that pushes sexual boundaries.

I'll admit being a big fan of really cheesy horror films, and this is actually better than most of that genre I have seen, with an impressive animated title sequence, capable acting and photography, great music, and - most of all - a script that doesn't take itself too seriously. With their knowledge of vampires a contradicting mess based on various movies they have seen, the boys plot with Brewster to survive the night, and hope that help comes with the dawn. It's a cute approach, kind of like a gay "An American Werewolf in London." Not rated, but would be an R for violence and simulated sex; DVD promises many extras, including interviews, a behind the scenes, and a gag reel. I give it four stars out of five.
Directed and written by Mark Bessenger.
A Trucker (Lou Cass) arrives at work to begin another week on the road. At his diesel turck, he hears a noise. He opens the door and sees nothing in there. He walks inside to the back. Sudden;y, we hear him scream and blood is pouring out and onto the ground. An apple has bite marks in it.
We are then treated to animated opening credits sequence.
Brewster (Benjamin Lutz) is making love to Amber Lynn (Miranda Downey). Well, he is trying to. Brewster has a male problem. He gets a cell phone call from Caplan (Jon Gale) who tells him his brother is late and he will be fired in 10 minutes if he doesn't show up. Better yet, he wants Brewster to take his brother's place and take a shipment to Topeka, Kansas. When Brewster arrives at the workplace, he doesn't find caplan, but there is blood everywhere. Brewster steps into the pool of blood where the previous trucker's was at. Now his shoe is bloody, but he is on the road anyway. Along the way, he picks up two gay hitchhikers, Vogel (David Alanson Bradberry) and Cary (Windham Beachma).

While the opening animated credits were admittedly first-rate in terms of both their quirky artistry and "promise of things to come," those of you cursed with an unyieldingly discriminating nature, requiring at least a modicum of quality production in a film, will doubtless wind up tossing "Bite Marks" into the nearest available trash can.
Uh, oh! In a last-minute qualm of conscience, I fear that David Alanson Bradberry's pretty little face compels me to award the film an extra quarter star. I should have quit while ahead.

I wanted so much to love this movie. However, I could only tolerate about 10 minutes as the acting was very poor. I decided with so many other options, it wasn't worth my time.Published 4 months ago by Anna Book
