Transylmania Movie Trailer: Finally, A Vampire Movie Spoof


Even before the Twilight revolution, vampires were in. Before pink was the new black, vampire movies were making their way into the mainstream with a vengeance. And now, with franchises like the aforementioned teen broodfest Twilight and the low-down and dirty HBO series True Blood, it seems that we just can’t escape the fangs of a vampire-crazy culture. Which makes the whole thing ripe for spoofing.

Enter brothers David and Scott Hillenbrand, the writer/director team behind such gems as King Cobra, National Lampoon Presents Dorm Daze and the ever-popular Dorm Daze 2. They are taking the vampire fad to task in their new movie, Transylmania, a spoof that appears to be one part Twilight, one part wannabe Monster Squad (I stress the word wannabe) and one part ever other National Lampoons Presents movie of the past 5 years. Except, based on the trailer below, this movie looks downright awful. Not awful in the Friedberg/Seltzer sense, but not far off. The only thing we can hope for is that the movie is smarter than what we’re seeing here (which I doubt) and that they stay on the topic of vampires (if Amy Winehouse shows up in this movie, I’m going on a killing spree). All I know is that it’s clearly no Lesbian Vampire Killers.

Transylmania is in theaters (or on DVD, I can’t tell) December 4, 2009. Check out the trailer below, courtesy of Yahoo Movies.
