Product Description

Starring a rock royalty cast including Iggy Pop (Iggy & the Stooges), Alice Cooper, Henry Rollins and Moby, Suck is a rock’n’roll vampire comedy-horror about a down and out band, The Winners, who will do anything for a record deal. Their luck suddenly changes when Jennifer the bass player, disappears one night with a Vampire and emerges with a sexually charged charisma that drives the audiences wild. As the band members succumb, one by one, to blood lust, their “gimmick” launches them into the limelight.

4.0 out of 5 stars Blood, fangs and rock'n'roll 24 Sep 2010
By PJ Rankine TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
At last a vampire movie worth watching. Suck is about a washed up band called the Winners who are so bad their manager reccommends that they fire him. One night in Montreal their female bass player is lured away by a vampire who turns her. Next night the audience are entranced by the vamp in the band and their fortunes start to improve. Their roady is roped in as a Rensfield type character and they soon have a Van Helsing on their tail played tongue in cheek by Malcom McDowell. One by one the band succumb to the temptation to become vampires until a showdown with Van Helsing forces them to reconsider their life style. The film is a blend of black comedy and musical and it works really well. Big names Iggy Pop, Alice Cooper and Moby all play secondary roles to good effect but don't overshadow the largely unknown stars. It has good production values and my copy was anamorphic widescreen so no black bars. Being musical it also has a good rock soundtrack which I had no volume issues with. I'm sure this film didn't have a large budget but you'd never know, it is so well produced and was a great 90 minutes entertainment.

Having watched the BD of Suck tonight, I perused the reviews here with interest. Each to their own I guess, but I cannot honestly see how this could be rated as either a 1 or a 5-star movie.

For my money, Suck is a reasonably entertaining campy comedy/horror yarn, where the humour just about hits more targets than it misses. Think Lost Boys meets Rocky Horror, with the faintest hint of Spinal Tap and you're getting pretty close. If you're in the right frame of mind (i.e. leave your brain at home) you'll probably laugh out loud a couple of times and have a grin on your face for much of the rest. Rock icons Alice Cooper and Iggy Pop join in the fun and do a pretty decent job - as does Malcolm McDowell (both in the flesh and via some clever cuts from Lucky Man) - his errant crossbow fire was hilarious! Moby also gets a 'bit part' (ouch - sorry!). The story though, it has to be said, is pretty flimsy and the original songs are OK but never really strong enough to raise Suck up there to compete with the likes of Rocky Horror or Hedwig & The Angry Inch.

The Blu-Ray presentation is very good, with excellent image definition and solid 5.1 sound (listen out for when Queen Vamp is trying to disorientate Malcolm McDowell!). The making-of extras includes interviews with Alice and Iggy and so are worth a look.

It's light, it's fun most of the time and there are far worse ways to spend 90 minutes, but I doubt if Suck has the genuine depth in quality to make it a future classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun, inventive, great cameos 27 Nov 2010
Format:DVD
I really liked this film. It is a guilty bit of fun, with great actors and musicians in every scene. It doesn't take itself too seriously, and it looks like the actors are having a good time.

Is it the greatest vampire flick ever made -- probably not, but it has no such pretension, either. It is a fun, quite novel look at vampires.

Very little in the way of exposition on what vampires are (or are not) is given, which was actually quite refreshing. In this story vampires don't need to be taught their natures, so there are no how-to hunting scenes, or anything like that ... it just chugs along with a rock and roll road trip story, and just assumes that the audience can accept that the vampires are vampires, and that they do vampire-like stuff. (Stakes and sunlight are bad, no mention of crosses or religious relics, no glittering like twilight - though they do shine sometimes)

I went into it expecting a bit of creative indie film fun, and that's exactly what I got.

Things that I especially liked -

Moby as an obnoxious hard rocker (the biggest rock star in Buffalo! -- People from the UK may not necessarily get why that is funny, but it is.)
Hugo, the hapless French Canadian roadie
Dmitri Coats as Queeny the head vampire, who was accurately described as being, "like a junkie from hell."
Alice Cooper & Iggie Pop, having fun being versions of themselves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blu ray review 4 Feb 2011
By Chinatown Blue TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this film in every way. The comedy actually works without beating every gag to death, the script is intelligent without trying to be utterly meaningful all the time, the music is great and nobody sparkles. And while it does feature some boy-girl stuff, the romantic angst never gets in the way of a good, light-hearted road trip tale of rock wannabes. The acting is great, and I was delighted to see Iggy Pop, Alice Cooper and Moby turn in sterling performances - and Malcolm McDowell too, as vampire hunter Eddie Van Helsing (keep watching as the credits roll to see his musical complaint that of all the cast, he doesn't get a song). There is some really clever use of footage from O Lucky Man to give us a flashback on van Helsing's reasons for his enmity to the undead. And there's a nice little making-of documentary too. As for the blu ray, both picture and sound quality are excellent, and I am glad I paid extra to have it; I saw part of this on a dvd a friend had rented, and the blu ray is a clear and visible improvement. If you liked Lost Boys, you will indeed enjoy this; and if you didn't, there's a pretty good chance you'll like this anyway.

Obviously certain 'actors' in the movie make it's appeal. It's light, easy-to-watch and funny! Give it a go. I have watched it a few times now.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Fun but not a masterpiece
FIrst off this is not a great cult musical movie like 'Phantom of The Paradise' or 'Shock Treatment' or 'Rocky Horror' perhaps because it is 90% comedy/horror and only 10% drama. Read more
