Vampiress Review: "Bloodsucking Bastards"

The Gist:  3 employees try to survive as a vampire co-worker with intentions of taking over the office kills co workers he hates and turns the ones he likes.

Clarification:  So basically we have the movie "Office Space" but one step further where the co-workers aren't just annoying they're blood sucking vampires.  The film starts out similar to office space in that you are introduced to an office and you get the different annoying quirks of the employees prior to the whole "vampire" portion starting.  Once everyone is introduced then it takes a darker (but still comedic) survival horror turn.

Selling Point: The movies climax is pretty entertaining.

Female Vampire Factor:  Only one female main character (Amanda played by Emma Fitzpatrick) but she doesn't get turned via the "main vampire waits to turn her last" cliche.  There are several females in the office with one being very attractive (Zabeth played by Yvette Yates) and she does get a few seduction scenes including an attempt at seducing the female main character (to no avail unfortunately).
Problem is on my end that when she does finally fang out its the demon vampire look.
This is made much worse in the fact that many of the rest of the vampires in the film are just pail people with fangs.  Not sure why she would be different.
 Thanks to the miracle of instagram she does take a picture with the fangs and without the makeup.

The pre horror office parts of the film aren't that entertaining. Unlike Office Space which was funny due to relate-able humor this office is mostly just a bunch of people with weird quirks that make all of them pretty annoying. Once those weird quirks get combined with the vampirism you get some pretty funny scenes out of it.  I give it a Vampire Beauty Rating of 2 out of 5.
