So, sometimes my tastes run to the teenage girl (or, perhaps more accurately, the gay teenage boy). Give me some kick ass chicks, some handsome dudes and a little bit o’ horror styling and I am more than happy to go along for the ride!
Therefore, I had a great time with Vampire Academy, the recent big screen adaptation of the first story in Richelle Mead’s popular young adult series. Detailing the adventures of the vibrant Rose (a compelling Zoey Deutch) who is driven to protect vampire princess Lissa (regal Lucy Fry), this flick skitters along with plots of high school rivalry and seduction, the passions of fang worshippers (a la True Blood) and insidious schemes to destroy the possible heiress to the throne.
The fact that there are a number of sequels to Mead’s original book may clue you in to the fact that Lissa and Rose are sure to survive this onslaught. Your giggles upon witnessing these ferocious beasts, however, may lead to your ultimate undoing!
Until the next time – SWEET love and pink GRUE, Big Gay Horror Fan!
