Vampire Academy

In a year devoid of Twilight installments, it’s up to another intrepid film franchise to step in and fill the void it left for sexy teen vampires to stomp all over real-life squealing teen girl hearts. Enter Mark Waters‘ Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters, a film based on a popular paranormal YA series about (not sparkly) dhampirs, half human/vampires attending a private high school and just trying to live normal lives.

I say “normal” in an “attempting to be human” aspect, because these kids all look like they just waltzed off the set of Gossip Girl or that party in Pretty in Pink where they tell Andie she’s poor. One of the gossip dampirs, Rose Hathaway (Zoey Deutch), has been tasked with protecting the others from sinister, immortal vampires – it’s her legacy. Her other classmates, played by Danila Kozlovsky, Olga Kurylenko, Joely Richardson, Sarah Hyland, and Gabriel Byrne, do not seem to appreciate this one bit. High school is really hard for everyone.

I say it’s up to you to decide whether it’s time for more vampire/dhampir action, or if the wounds that Edward and company have left in our hearts (necks?) are too fresh to move on to a new crowd. Check out the trailer for yourself after the break.

Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters is in theaters February 24th, 2014.
