Rock stars to 'Suck' in new vamp movie

Vampires have always been the rock stars of paranormal pop culture. They play by their own rules, frequently transcend sexual orientation, live forever and get caught up in an addiction. And let's not forget, both vampires and rock stars are known for their preference for wearing leather and lace.

It should come as no surprise, then, that rock stars will appear alongside vampires in upcoming horror-comedy Suck.

MTV.com reports that the "rock 'n' roll vampire spoof," which is an Official Selection at next month's 2009 Toronto Film Festival, stars Henry Rollins, Iggy Pop, Alice Cooper (right) and ... Moby.

The film is about a loser band, The Winners, who develop a new "gimmick"when their bass player disappears one night with a hip vampire and returns "with a sexually charged charisma that drives the audiences wild." But as the band gets bloody famous, vampire hunter Eddie Van Helsing (yuk, yuk), played by Malcolm McDowell tracks them down.

Keep posted on whether the movie lives up to its name or not.
