Vampires get all the record deals.
“Suck” offers up a comically gorey satire of the Indie rock scene with an excellent sound track. Fans of vampires who don't sparkle, dark comedy, and rock music will readily fall under this film's spell. Best described as a horror-inspired comedy, “Suck,” like the music industry, is rated R for violence, gore, language, drugs, and sexual innuendo.
The plot follows a small-time band foreman, Joey, who experiences sudden success after his bassist (and ex girlfriend) spends the night with a vampire. She shows up at the gig looking extra pale, but draws lots of attention from the crowd. Encouraged, the band continues to book gigs as their lives are transformed in more than one way. Malcom McDowell plays vengeful vampire hunter Eddie Van Hellsing who happens to be afraid of the dark.
Rock legends Alice Cooper and Iggy Pop star; their characters offer conflicting advice to Joey on his journey as a musician. A host of other musicians appear in the film, including: Henry Rollins of Black Flag, Dimitri Coats of Burning Brides, Moby, Alex Lifeson of Rush, Carole Pope of Rough Trade, and Danny Smith of The City Drive. Alice Cooper's daughter, Calico Cooper, also drops in.
