Sheep?!?!?! No, please. Anything but sheep.

You gotta love this:

Hello, my name is Vic...

(crowd): Hi, Vic!

...and I'm a vampire.

Vic has a problem. He's a young vampire (as vampire ages go) who only wants a reasonably normal life. But every time he gets a girlfriend, when things get hot and heavy he's overcome with bloodlust and winds up killing her.

The only thing to do is to join a 12-step program: Vampires Anonymous.

The first part of the process involved taking a battery of tests to develop a complete psychological and physical profile. At the end, the vampire is presented with an animal especially matched to provide an alternative to feeding on human blood.

So Vic gets sent to a small town in North Carolina, known for it's sheep farms. You can imagine the fuss when sheep start disappearing, and of course there are complications with the small town badasses and women troubles.

Things really go to hell when a corporate slayer shows up in town.

There are mildly gory scenes and blood (it's a vampire movie, whaddaya expect?), and some nice minor plotlines and running gags appearing throughout the story. The VA meetings are a riot. A good description would be Doc Hollywood with fangs.

I like this movie. It's a nice blend of comedy and vampires.

1 Oh, it's a movie. I thought you were going to review some of the M.Y.T.H., Inc. books, which feature a vampire named Victor (no relation, BTW).

3 I ordered it from Amazon.com, since my local video store usually only carries blockbusters...

4 ...and I watched it last night. I liked the fact that it was almost gore-less, and that Michael Madsen was in it (be still my heart!). It was mildly amusing, but no Sean of the Dead (which had me laughing out loud). Maybe guys find sheep-shagging funnier than women do....
