Movie Review: Bloodsucking Bastards

Storyline: Bloodsucking Bastards takes audiences on a hilarious, blood-spattered roller coaster ride in the most terrifying locale of all: the American workplace. The film stars Fran Kranz as Evan Sanders, a low-level, dutiful employee stuck in a boring job at a soul-killing every corporation. Evan’s the kind of guy who does all the work and gets none of the credit, but at least he gets to spend his days with his beautiful co-worker/girlfriend Amanda (Emma Fitzpatrick) and his slacker best friend Tim (Joey Kern), so he soldiers on in the hope of one day getting his coveted sales director position. Unfortunately, it all falls apart in one fell swoop when Amanda breaks up with him and Evan’s boss Ted (Joel Murray) hands his promotion to his college nemesis Max (Pedro Pascal). And it isn’t just their sordid past Evan has to deal with. After his fellow officemates start going through disturbing changes (which, paradoxically, make them better employees) and bodies begin to pile up, Evan learns the horrible truth: Max is a vampire. And even worse… a vamp with a plan. Evan must find a way to stop the evil brewing amidst the cubicles, expose Max as the bloodsucking bastard that he is, and save his pals before his life and career go from dead-end…to just dead.

Directed by Brian James O’Connell and penned by the popular comedy troupe Dr. God and Ryan Mitts,Bloodsucking Bastards recently made its world premiere as the opening night film at the Slamdance Film Festival 2015.

Fangirl Thoughts: This movie is Office Space meets The Lost Boys. It has humor and fun evil vampires trying to take over the world one cubicle farm at a time. If you have ever worked in a cubicle farm then you understand how it will be easy to have vampires take over the office. 

This is another movie that we can add into the cult classics of vampire movies. Fran Kranz plays Evan that has to save the office from doom. Kranz delivers in this role and you cannot help but chuckle at his dilemma of saving his ex and best friend. Even watching the fight sequence leads the viewer to release some chuckles. Overall this is a movie I would recommend for anyone that enjoys vampires, cubicles, and laughs.
