Description & Features+

"Cirque Du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant", based on the popular series of books by Darren Shan, is a fantasy-adventure about a teenager who unknowingly breaks a 200-year-old truce between two warring factions of vampires. Pulled into a fantastic life of misunderstood sideshow freaks and grotesque creatures of the night, one teen will vanish from the safety of a boring existence and fulfill his destiny in a place drawn from nightmares. 16-year-old Darren (Chris Massoglia) was like most kids in his suburban neighborhood. He hung out with his best friend, got decent grades and usually stayed out of trouble. But when he and his buddy stumble upon a traveling freak show, things begin to change inside Darren. That's the exact moment when a vampire named Larten Crepsley (John C. Reilly) turns him into something, well, bloodthirsty. Newly undead, he joins the Cirque Du Freak, a touring sideshow filled with monstrous creatures from a snakeboy and a wolfman to a bearded lady (Salma Hayek) and a gigantic barker (Ken Watanabe). As Darren flexes his newfound powers in this dark world, he becomes a treasured pawn between the vampires and their deadlier counterparts. And while trying to survive, one boy will struggle to keep their brewing war from devouring what's left of humanity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Very Good Movie I believe that this was one of the best movies I've seen. It doesn't have to follow the series exactly, or even make sense, after all, it is only the first movie. The acting was pretty good. The characters were also very good, they filled the spots where they needed to be filled. I dislike how some critics compare this movie to Twilight, when it doesn't have anything in common, except for th efact that they both have vampires. Over all, I found this movie to very good, and I can't stop watching it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hmmmmm.... This movie got me interested in reading the books, which are way better. If you are a fan of the series then this film is not for you, but as the begining of a series of movies it, hopefully, should get better. So in short not the best movie, but not nearly the worst I"ve seen.
