Written and directed by Rob Stefaniuk. Stars Rob Stefaniuk, Jessica Paré and Paul Anthony.
An unpopular rock band sees changes as one of the members is seduced by a vampire.
How had I not been aware of this movie until now? There are so many goddamned cameos, it should be mandatory for all rock fans to watch it. Alice Cooper, Moby, Henry Rollins, Iggy Pop and greats like Malcolm McDowell and Dave Foley and that’s just skimming the surface. For instance, how the hell have they gotten Rush’s Alex Lifeson to play a border guard?!
There was definitely sorcery at hand here, as the amount of rock stars in this movie is too damn high. I’m honestly interested in knowing how Rob Stefaniuk got everyone involved into something relatively indie like Suck. IMDB and Wikipedia say nothing of it. If it hadn’t been from the fact that it was streaming on Screambox, I wouldn’t have known the movie existed.
At any rate, Suck is a fun little dark comedy. It doesn’t have the best story and doesn’t have the best main cast (with the exception of Jessica Paré, one of our hometown stars). What it lacks in originality, it makes up with sincere efforts, good laughs and the ridiculous amount of people you’ll recognize along the way. As a package deal, it’s decent and I ended up liking it a lot more than I thought.
If anything, Jessica Paré as a glamourous rock vampire should be enough to keep you watching.
