My favorite subgenre of horror is humorous horror, which gives me as many laughs per minute as screams. The last few years have given us Cabin in the Woods, Tucker and Dale vs. Evil, Horns and the upcoming Cooties. Now there’s a hilarious/horrible new entry: Bloodsucking Bastards. We have the trailer and three snippets from the film for you below.
Bloodsucking Bastards takes an everyday office with an ambitious wannabe sales manager (Fran Kranz) and introduces a vampire (Pedro Pascal) in the mix. When Pascal’s character says in the trailer, if they don’t make their goals, “We’re going to have to kill all of you,” we assume he means it.
Below the trailer are the snippets, which appear swiped from the office’s security camera. They’re brief, but they show us that your irritating office mates are still annoying even after they’ve become creatures of the night.
Check it out. And I hope you weren’t expecting subtlety. After all, the film’s titled Bloodsucking Bastards.
The movie will be getting a limited release on Sept. 4, in addition to being shown on demand.
