This new trailer for Cirque du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant (really needs to pick one title or the other) has given me hope the the genre isn’t dead. Why? It’s a vampire comedy! It may sound like a lame idea, but watch the trailer and tell me it doesn’t look good. As tired as I’ve grown of John C. Reilly, I think he’s great here and Salma Hayek as the Bearded Lady and Ken Wantanabe as the circus ringmaster help out as well.
It comes out this October, and looks to be a nice compliment to this years other horror comedy, Zombieland.
