We may never see the day Edward Cullen breaks into song, but, no doubt, it’s every Gleek and Twi-Hard’s fantasy. Bringing you the best of both worlds, I Kissed a Vampire might just fill the void.
The rock musical, which premiered at the Seattle International Film Festival this past weekend, follows three teens navigating the fang-tastic world of the undead. Dylan (Lucas Grabeel of High School Musical fame) is going through some major life changes – he’s transforming into a vampire. His efforts to protect his girlfriend Sara (Adrian Slade) from a similar fate and the deliciously deviant vampire Trey Sylvania (Drew Seeley) prove fruitless. His beauty gets bitten, and pretty soon everyone wants to “go for the throat.”
Will they ever be human again? With songs like “Just a Little Peck” and “Love’s in Vein,” we’ll sing along, either way.
