On October 26 Bloodsucking Cinema premieres on Starz at 8pm et/pt. This special examines the vampire film and the effect that it has had on both the cinematic landscape and the American landscape as a whole.
Movie PictureAll in all, despite what gripes I might have about Bloodsucking Cinema, I really do think that this special is a worthy viewing experience. It seems that Starz is really trying to court horror fans (heck, they did buy Anchor Bay, right?) and because of this I feel it only makes sense to support their efforts. The horror genre as a whole seems to be experiencing a highpoint right now. Granted a lot of the movies being made leave something to be desired, there are enough good ones that that should show people the genre still has a lot of life in it. Sure Bloodsucking Cinema might only play in an informational way for people just getting into the vampire genre, but this special's openended quality makes it so that if people are interested they can certainly look deeper.
