1814 - Suck
I feel badly that it took me this long to get around to this film. If you're into Canadian comedy then you're hopefully aware of Rob Stefanuik and his previous film, Phil The Alien. This time out it's a rock opera about a band that'll do anything to become famous - including selling their souls and becoming vampires. Outside of Stefaniuk in the cast there's also the amazing Jessica Pare, Dave Foley not to mention some fantastic cameos by rock legends such as: Henry Rollins, Iggy Pop, Alice Cooper, and Moby.
As usual I don't like giving much away, and I won't here. But this is something unique and special. It's fun, funny, and it looks goddamn great. If you like dark comedies, vampires, and rock and roll then you really can't go wrong with this one. Shit tonnes of fun.
