Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant

A fantasy-adventure, based on the popular series of books by Darren Shan, about a teenager who unknowingly breaks a 200-year-old truce between two warring factions of vampires.

16-year-old Darren (Chris Massoglia) was like most kids in his suburban neighborhood. But when he and his buddy stumble upon a traveling freak show, things begin to change inside Darren. That’s the exact moment when a vampire named Larten Crepsley (John C. Reilly) turns him into something, well, bloodthirsty.

Newly undead, he joins the Cirque Du Freak, a touring sideshow filled with monstrous creatures from a snakeboy and a wolfman to a bearded lady (Salma Hayek) and a gigantic barker (Ken Watanabe).

The Vampire's Assistant is too busy making impossible claims about just how spectacular its sequels will be to serve up a self-contained story with a satisfying finale.

Jammed with story threads that don’t cohere, Cirque commits the cardinal sin for a vampire movie: It’s bloodless.

The movie has good special effects and suitably gruesome characters, but it's bloodless.

Cirque is a harmless bit of fluff with a very cool look, but there's just never enough bite.

Making a vampire movie without any bite is like removing guns from a Western.

I'm 13 years old and the film was great and I could relate with some of the characters. This is the really the first proper vampire movie to come out in a long while!! Just because it's not...

From the looks of the trailers...it looks interesting but the books are way better!! I don't know who John Reily is and what his acting style is, but I can say for one thing that the actor acting the character, looks crazy rather than serious character.
