|Here’s an interesting one for you. Take a bit of geek culture, mix it with some teen drama, then do your best to spoof on the Twilight series, and it looks like you might come up with the trailer for My Sucky Teen Romance. Directed by the very young Emily Hagins (She is about to turn 20 years old!), this looks like it could build a decent amount of buzz behind it. Her third feature film, Hagins has been directing since the age of 12. The release date for My Sucky Teen Romance was just yesterday, so it should be available to most readers. So, if you’re intrigued by the project, here is the trailer for the film. Jump after the break for an official plot summary.|
The kids are biting and the blood is flowing in teenage writer-director Emily Hagins’ horror-comedy breakthrough, MY SUCKY TEEN ROMANCE, the buzzed-about genre sensation. On 17-year-old Kate’s last weekend in town before heading to college, she and her geeky friends head to SpaceCON, the local sci-fi/fantasy convention. There, Kate meets Paul, a recently turned teen vampire (who takes advantage of the gathering’s costume atmosphere by actually dressing as a bloodsucker). But when Kate tries to make a move on him, he gives her the hickey from hell.
Kate and her pals then discover that Paul is not the only vampire at the convention, and it is up to them to kick some vampire butt, or Kate’s going to be attending permanent night school from now on!
