Coming Distractions: Trailer for Bloodsucking Bastards combines office tedium with vampires
“Kill my boss? Do I dare live out the American dream?” That Simpsons quote seems to be at the undead heart of Bloodsucking Bastards, which features office drones realizing that their new bosses are, in fact, vampires, giving them license to do them in. The film is directed by Brian James O’Connell and stars Fran Kranz (The Cabin In The Woods), Joel Murray (God Bless America), and Pedro Pascal (Game Of Thrones). Bloodsucking Bastards doesn’t premiere until Slamdance on January 23, but the trailer makes it look like a fun, gory romp worth anticipating, with elements of Fright Night, The Lost Boys, Shaun Of The Dead, and Office Space all put into a bloody blender.
