Movie: Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant (2009)

Meet Darren. He's sixteen going on immortal

"Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant" is an interesting movie, adapted from the first three books of "The Saga of Darren Shan" by Darren Shan. I haven't read the books, so I've no preconception about this movie.

Strictly speaking, this is a movie that appeals to young adults. This is my view concerning movies with vampires or zombies or any of the undead beings as the theme. Another example is the Twilight series. The lead stars are young adults anyway. :)

Okay. Now let's come back to this movie. Cirque du Freak, led by ringleader Mr. Tall, is a troupe of people with abnomalities, or in short, circus freaks. They stay and travel together while making a living out of live, freaky performances.

The zest of the movie is actually the relationship triangle between Darren, his envious friend Steve, and Darren's mentor, Larten Crepsley, the Vampire who "forced" Darren into becoming a Vampire in order to save Steve's life from the venomous bite of Madame Octa (Crepsley's spider).

Mr. Tiny, the so-called "neutral" villain in the movie is plotting to trigger a war, which was already brewing between Larten's camp of docile Vampires and the devilish Vampaneze for centuries. Did he succeed? It's up to Darren and Steve to pull the final trigger.

So, is this a recommended movie? I'd say it's a recommendable entertaining movie - neither morbid nor gory, which is a relief to me. John C. Reilly as Larten Crepsley gave me a good impression and an uplifted understanding about Vampires. Is this good? Well, maybe. :)
