TIFF 09: Moby, Alice Cooper, Iggy Pop, And More In The Trailer For Rob Stefaniuk's SUCK!
Seemingly doomed to roadtrip doldrums and dives, the band The Winners break their slump when their female bass player disappears one night with a studly, stylin’ vampire. She returns charged with sexual charisma that creates audience frenzy and eventually ensnares the rest of the band. Their “hook” launches them to fame. But fame turns out to be a different kind of Hell than AC/DC promised.
Following an “incident” on a national radio show with “Rockn’ Roger” The Winners hit mega-stardom beyond their wildest dreams. But Joey is haunted by an eerie bartender with a dark secret. And legendary vampire hunter, Eddie Van Helsing, is on their tail tracking them down despite his fear of the dark. But when a veteran music producer calls them on becoming a vampire freak show, their rock’n’roll bubble bursts.
How's this for a cast on your basic rock and roll vampire comedy: Iggy Pop. Alice Cooper. Henry Rollins. Carol Pope. And - in a hysterical bit of stunt casting - the vigilantly vegan Moby as the lead singer of a punk rock band who is pelted with raw meat by fans at every live show. Throw in a bit of Malcolm McDowell and a dash of Kid In The Hall Dave Foley and that, kids, is one fine cast. We first wrote about this one a while back when we posted the first stills from the film and now we follow that up with your very first look at the film's first trailer. It actually plays more like a promo reel than a trailer, per se, but it gives you an excellent look at the film itself, the cast, the vampire effects, most of the cameo appearances, the music - largely co-written by Stefaniuk hiumself - while also making it pretty clear what direction they aim to play the vampire metaphor.
