More teen vampires in VAMPIRE ACADEMY trailer
Basically there are two reasons this film may be of any interest, VAMPIRE ACADEMY: BLOOD SISTERS is a teen vampire film based on a novel (since when aren’t they?). The screenplay though was written by Daniel Waters, he also wrote HEATHERS (and a bunch of other stuff that hasn’t quite matches up) and it was directed by Mark Waters who previous directed MEAN GIRLS.
Perhaps this could be a mix and blend for a film that has the essence of those two, and it might be less TWILIGHT like. At least that is what one can hope for. The trailer actually isn’t all that terrible, you can scope it out below, but at least with those two Waters involved there is hope.
Judge for yourselves, check out the synopsis and the trailer – worth your time or another lame teen vamp flick?
Rose Hathaway is a dhampir, half-vampire and half-human, who is training to be a guardian at St Vladimir’s Academy along with many others like her. There are good and bad vampires in their world: Moroi, who co-exist peacefully among the humans and only take blood from donors, and also possess the ability to control one of the four elements – water, earth, fire or air; and Strigoi, blood-sucking, evil vampires who drink to kill. Rose and other dhampir guardians are trained to protect Moroi and kill Strigoi throughout their education. Along with her best friend, Princess Vasilisa Dragomir, a Moroi and the last of her line, with whom she has a nigh unbreakable bond, Rose must run away from St Vladimir’s, in order to protect Lissa from those who wish to harm the princess and use her for their own means.
