Ever want to be an undead rock star? Now you can, as Entertainment One, D&E Entertainment and Gibson are giving away one Gibson Flying V guitar (approximate retail value $1,199.00) autographed by the fanged cast of SUCK. Go here for complete terms and conditions.
FANGORIA is partnering with Entertainment One and D&E Entertainment for a nationwide, one-time only theatrical screening of the raucous horror comedy this Thursday, September 2 in over 100 digital cinemas. Participating venues include: AMC, Carmike, Celebration Cinemas, Dipson, Lee Neighborhood, Mann, Marcus, Clearview, Wehrenberg, Bow Tie, Rave, Studio Movie Grill, Cleveland Cinemas, Allen Theatres, Harkins, Alamo Drafthouse, Regent Theatre, The Michigan Theatre, Cinema West, Spectrum 8, The Movie Experience, Cinema Café and Showplace East Cinemas. Showtimes and theater locations are now available for this bloody fun event here.
Written, directed and starring Rob Stefaniuk, SUCK follows a down and out rock band, ironically known as The Winners, who are desperately seeking a record deal and will do anything to make it big. After a life-changing encounter with a notorious bloodsucker (Dimitri Coats as Queeny), they rocket to stardom only to discover that fame and fortune are not all they are cracked up to be. As their fanbase grows, the Winners soon find themselves stalked by creepy producers, wild groupies and the legendary vampire hunter Eddie Van Helsig (genre legend Malcolm McDowell). For these rockers, fame becomes a fate worse than death.
After its world premiere at the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival, SUCK made its U.S. debut at the South by Southwest in Austin earlier this year. The movie co-stars Jessica Pare (HOT TUB TIME MACHINE) and Dave Foley (THE KIDS IN THE HALL) and features memorable supporting turns by music greats Iggy Pop, Henry Rollins, Moby, Alex Lifeson of Rush and Alice Cooper.
Besides screening last month to a rabid audience at San Diego during Comic-Con, SUCK also played Montreal’s Fantasia film festival (see review), bringing home the Silver Prize for Best Canadian Feature.
Reviewing the film, Quiet Earth’s Marina Antunes said: “SUCK is great fun, a film that entertains from beginning to end and which left me wanting for more.” Twitch’s Todd Brown commented, “SUCK has all the ingredients for an instant cult hit.” To see if SUCK is coming to your town and to purchase tickets, as well as view the trailer, sink your fangs into the official site and see FANGORIA #297 for an exclusive set report to the film’s Toronto location.
