Stefaniuk, a one-man band as writer, director, actor and author of seven of the film's songs, leavens the schtick of band humour with vampire lore.

Not to be confused with that horrible new movie "Vampires Suck". This one is entirely different. I wrote a script similar to this movie, only it was… More

A film that had no right to be good, and yet was consistently enjoyable. Not quite the next Rocky Horror like they're making it out to be, but certainly… More

This is the best movie I've seen of the film festival yet. I can't get over what a great sense of humour Rob Stefaniuk has, and it's got… More
