I SWEAR us folks down south aren’t THIS bad!
Inbred Redneck Vampires (2004)
Directed By: Mike Hegg & Joe Sherlock
Well today we have the very indie Inbred Redneck Vampires, a 2004 film that was formally known as Bloodsucking Redneck Vampires according to the fine folks over at IMDB. Thanks to the other fine folks over at MVD you can now get this film for the low low price of $7.46! They also are the place to look for the new edition of Truth or Dare: A Critical Madness which I soo soo recommend..
Oh but wait, this isn’t about Truth or Dare, this is about redneck vampires damn it!! And when it comes to a film like Inbred Redneck Vampires lets just say, it leaves a little to be desired.
While being hunted down by a vampire hunter a female Vampire and her human sidekick flee to a southern town where she hatches up the plan of turning these “rednecks” into a vampire army to help her do battle with the vampire hunter. Sadly however things don’t go as planned. I could also add the plot gets lost in a whole slew of other things but I’ll just stop with the plot summary there.
I must be honest folks, there’s a few things I need to point out that are bad about this film. It trails off the plot and gets more worried about showing how redneck the area is rather than sticking with the vampires all together. The films runs about 10 to 15 minutes longer than it ever need be. And since it’s an indie film and some of the actors were just locals used to fill in some spots, some of the acting is awful!! If I add in the bad CGI (which can be expected since it’s an indie film) I think I may have covered all the bad worth bringing up.
That’s not to say we don’t have at least a little something worth watching here. The movie is very gimmicky, with southern folks running all over the place, vampires sounding like they came right from Transylvania, and of course a very…um..shall we say..fruity decorator. Sure it’s a little out there but at times it’s good for a chuckle. One of the hicks is a midget that I think actually gives us the best performance for the whole film. I generally liked the little guy while he was on screen and he’s worth the cheap price of the film if anything.
Also we have ourselves a bit of nudity…some people like that ya know? Some of it you will want to see, and some of it you’ll be shielding your eyes from. But regardless if they kept their cloths on or not the movie does have it’s fair share of attractive women to look at. Even if it sends chills down your spine to hear them say very redneck like lingo, “Yall know what I mean?”. But that can be expected since that’s what the movie IS about.
Horror comedy films can be down right awful and for the most part this one avoids the down right awful label. There’s some very iffy moments and actions in the thing but it does have a few moments you could find actually funny. I do wish however that the movie had went with less “redneck” stuff and more vampire oriented things. But if you trimmed some time off and used less dick and fart jokes you might have something a little more watchable..Still, not totally horrible.
Well its not going to make you start adding it to any top 10 lists after you see it. It’s playing hard off the southern hicks angle and probably brushes off most it’s vampire plot for it. Not really my cup of tea but you may find it slightly more enjoyable than I. If so, don’t forget you can pick it up from MVD for the low low price of $7.46
Did I mention they also have Truth or Dare as well??
