Halloween is over for another year, but there’s plenty to look forward to in the next few months. Of course the next Twilight movie will be hitting screens in a few weeks, but there is plenty of things worth waiting for. Aside from much to look forward to from Twinklight, there will be a few books coming up. Here’s a review of the latest gay vampire news and what’s coming up.
Vampires: Brighter in Darkness
If you have been following past news, Brighter in Darkness is a great independent gay vampire series which got it’s start online before getting onto a satellite channel. Well the episodes were re-cut into a feature film that’s been hitting screens around the UK. Plans are in the works for a DVD release followed by three further feature films. Expect a bigger budget and better quality.
Now making the festival rounds, Vamperifica looks like a great vampire film. Carmen is a gay college drama student who happens to be the reincarnation of a vampire king, and his followers have found him and restored him, but Carmen is not finding being a vampire that easy. Read the full story and watch the trailer.
A nice proper horror film, Bite Marks stars a hitch-hiking gay couple who get picked up by a truck driver hauling a load of coffins. The coffins ain’t empty and when the GPS leads them astray the vampires awake. I don’t anticipate the couple get lucky and become vampires, but who knows (actually there’s a brilliant comment after our write up which is pretty good spoiler that answers some questions). It’s coming out on DVD this month, if you can wait! Pre-order it from amazon.com or from tlavideo.com.
1313: Boy crazies
David DeCoteau’s latest movie will the released on DVD in February. Boy Crazies is the story of a house full of models who happen to be vampires. Trent’s dream to become a model is coming along nicely, that is until he moves into the model house and is turned into a vampire. Basically it’s more hot vampires with their shirts off strutting around; nothing wrong with that (although one of the guys has long hair). Read more about the film.
I’m still holding out hope that a gay character will be introduced to the show, one who will be vampire would be nice, or at least someone other than Caroline’s father. Yes I’m asking a lot, but show creator Kevin Williamson used to run Dawson’s Creek which was going well until gay-character Jack McPhee (played by Kerr Smith) joined the cast and the show took off.
