Even if you haven’t worked in an office environment, you probably have an idea what it’s like. Monotonous, quiet, bland—at times, it’s almost like everyone is possessed. Which is pretty much the set up of the new vampire movie Bloodsucking Bastards. Check out three exclusive clips!
The film, which hits limited theaters and on demand September 4, is a comedy about what happens when an office gets taken over by vampires. Really, what more do you need to know? Blood, humor, heroism, death, dumb people: It’s a potent mix. But does the film pull off this tricky combo of horror and humor? Judge for yourself—here are three viral videos that aren’t actually from the movie, but do capture some of the film’s humor and that oblivious office mentality that could lead to people not noticing a blood-thirsty invasion.
I have yet to see Bloodsucking Bastards, but you almost get the feeling that these clips could include spoilers. Like this is what will happen if the vampires win, take over the office and make severed heads in the fridge a normal thing. And even they’re not, they’re still great.
Bloodsucking Bastards was written by the comedy troupe Dr. God and Ryan Mitts, and is directed by Brian James O’Connell. It stars Fran Kranz (the stoner from Cabin in the Woods) Pedro Pascal (Oberyn Martell in Game of Thrones) and Joel Murray (needs no introduction). We’ll have a full review Friday.
