Release date: 2012
I Kissed a Vampire was based on a short, 3 episode series of the same name that was released on iTunes some time ago. Those initial episodes (or at least the script and songs thereof) made up the beginning of this film with the only real difference that main character Dylan Knight (Lucas Grabeel) was changed into a vampire (or more accurately a half vampire as the film begins) by being bitten by a foreign exchange student (Tahlena Chikami) rather than a bat.
Now, the fact that I know this indicates that I have seen the shorts but you might be aware that I have never reviewed them. I have them but could never summon up the gumption to put finger to keyboard and wax lyrical about them. Why? Probably because of a word that danced its way into the first paragraph… did you notice it? Songs… Yes the shorts were, and this is, a musical and the blurbs try to suggest that this is a vampiric High School Musical… honestly, I wouldn’t know if that is accurate or not.

From the rest of the review it is clear I was very underwhelmed but I got the real sense that if you were a young person, probably just pre-teen, who liked stuff like High School Musical you’d get a lot out of it probably. For adults, well it was low budget but it wasn’t offensive, just bland . 3 out of 10 as I am far too old to appreciate it.
