2009. Canada. Written and directed by Rob Stefaniuk. With Stefaniuk, Jessica Paré, Iggy Pop, Malcolm McDowell, Henry Rollins, Alice Cooper, Carole Pope, Paul Anthony, Mike Lobel. Stefaniuk, whose first feature, Phil the Alien, was shown in Canadian Front, 2005, returns with his newest genre mash-up. Suck follows the curious journey of a Canadian rock band who achieve celebrity by becoming vampires, a move that seriously complicates the musicians’ itinerary. How can they travel by day? And how can the undead get past the U.S. Department of Homeland Security? Laden with super-cool rock ’n’ roll cameos, Suck is as peppy and lively as a recently nourished creature of the night. 90 min.
