Editorial Reviews

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 channelling 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.
 
Winner of the Audience Award at the prestigious Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival, 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.

Upon the opening sequence in the Belgian horror/comedy/documentary mash-up "Vampires," I literally laughed out loud in hysteria. It was just so perfect, so unexpected, and yet so completely rational that I was caught utterly by surprise. But while Vincent Lannoo's delightful idea certainly has its share of inspired lunacy, the film never quite maintains that level of ridiculous genius throughout. Still, it's hard not to recommend this oddball creation that combines elements of the supernatural with family dysfunction with reality show posturing. More comedy than horror, "Vampires" posits what would happen if an undead brood granted access to a documentary film crew to share their lives. As it turns out, a vampire family has many of the same domestic problems as anyone else. Sure, there's that whole feasting on human blood element at work--but at least they share the same dinner table while doing it!

"Vampires" does begin (after a couple of false starts) with a film crew arriving for this unique documentary experiment. The patriarch seems to take tradition very seriously even as he has been seduced by an easy existence in modern day Belgium. The mother seems a little scattered--another of the brilliantly batty moments occurs as she adjusts to the filming microphone. The son is a bit of a player, and his dalliance with the sect leader's woman might put the clan in hot water. And the daughter is going through an unusual phase, she wants to be human. To the chagrin of her father, she likes to wear pink. This quartet manage to be surprisingly likable and even, dare I say, believable as a contemporary family unit. It's a fun idea with moments of brilliance, but there is a bit of unevenness with the pacing.

Still, I love the premise of the movie and each of cast members is terrific.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spinal Tap Goes Undead October 27, 2013
Format:DVD
Ah, the difficult life of the modern day vampire family. Ungrateful daughters who dye their hair blonde and want to sleep in pink (pink!) coffins. Governmental restrictions that limit food supplies to illegal immigrants and other such undesirables. And the often dreariness of eternal life...It's not easy trying to keep oneself amused year after year after year.

Forced to share ones home with a childless couple (there are rules that prohibit vampires who have no children from owning property...just one in a slew of zany laws dictated by the "vampire code"), suburban husband and wife Georges and Bertha, and their "children" Samson and Grace, face the daily problems of vampire life with a combination of sophistication and hilariously high handed eye rolling at the difficulties they must face in order to remain both law abiding vampire citizens AND bloodthirsty monsters.

This Belgium "mockumentary" (French with English subtitles) is clever and very, very funny, with absolutely terrific ensemble acting that relies heavily on improvisation. Although obviously very low budget, "Vampires" succeeds completely, despite its similarities to the earlier cult Belgian film "Man Bites Dog". Chock full of comedic golden nuggets, "Vampires" is a fresh and delightfully inventive antidote to the insipid world of the "Twilight" vampire community, and thank the dark spirits for that, wherever they are.

Hilarious, period. Who wouldn't love a Belgian mockumentary on a Family of vampires. It's Modern Family meets Bram Stoker! Bravo.
