Thanks to the I’m With Geek connections, an opportunity to grab my plus one and head to a glorious cinema for a Vampire Academy screening shone down on me. Not only did I have an excuse for a date but I also discovered a cinema that I had never been to before; Showcase Cinemas which I recommend entirely. Even though I am a bookworm by profession, I must confess, I’d never read this series and was relying on the cinematic version to introduce me to the hallowed halls of the Vampire Academy. And I wasn’t the only one, with the audience filled with adults and teenagers alike ready to sink their teeth into it.
There seems to be an abundance of books to films based on vampires and it largely follows the Twilight suite (I am partially unashamed of my middling level of fandom.) Vampire Academy could be the most teen one of them all. If you thought prior vamped up romps were as tween as you can get, then prepare for the worst of them.
