Release date: 2011
There is one element missing from a lot of gay orientated horror and I’m afraid to say that it is the actual horror side. I can appreciate that a group of men looking like they just strolled out of a boy band is going to ring the correct bells for the target audience but there is that tendency to forget the horror.
Vampire Boys is no exception to this generic statement, and it is a shame. However, more of a shame was that this forgot to be a horror so much that it tried to be twilight, ish… well, at least these vampires had fangs.
It begins with a girl (Shana Eve), she appears to be being hunted by the four aforementioned refugees from the boyband. The boys are Jasin (Jason Lockhart), Logan (Dylan Vox, the Lair and Scab), Dane (Jess Allen) and Adam (Tanner Acord). She is attacked and it is suggested that she was not ‘the one’. Mention is made of it being close to the one hundredth year.

And we are back where we started, musing over the fact that the horror element was forgotten about. Some poor acting, a waste of good actors and poor dialogue… plus too much Twilight-envy… and we have a poor film. A shame as I actually hoped it might have been, at the very least, a guilty pleasure movie. 3 out of 10.
