Apparently Kevin Scott Richardson is a Backstreet Boy (a boyband and not a sexual proclivity) and the thought of a pop person jumping onto the vampire bandwagon, replete with musical wheels, is not new. After all British pop combo McFly also did it, four years before, with the film Nowhere Left to Run.
The big difference with this vehicle is writer/director Ken Roht has not made this based on some radio friendly basis to please prepubescent fans. This is a gory, drug fuelled trip into a warped rock and roll dystopia, with lyrics that plumb sexual depths – and it is genuinely funny.

The film nicely mashes horror (or gore at least), music and (most importantly) comedy together and I genuinely found this funny. All in all this gets a well-deserved 7 out of 10.
