'Vampires Suck' and more spoofs to sink your teeth into

Whether its westerns, romantic comedies or vampires, it would seem some producers just can’t seem to sit through another predictable film. Enter the spoof, a genre that has put films including Psycho, She’s All That and Harry Potter in the firing line. The latest instalment comes from 20th Century Fox, as they take a dig at Twilight in their new comedy Vampires Suck. To celebrate its release, in cinemas 15th October, they've given us their take on the 10 best spoof movies.


Vampires Suck

Spoofing hit franchise Twilight,Vampires Suck might not be a first choice for the twi-hards out there. Becca Crane (Jenn Proske) is torn between two boys, mysterious vampire Edward Sullen (Matt Lanter) and hairy wolf man Jacob White (Chris Riggi). Expect glittery vampires, denim hotpant clad wolf packs and special appearances from ‘the dirt bags’ of Jersey Shore and Lady Gaga.

Airplane!

If there were any airport films out there this would definitely be a spoof of one of them. Starring Robert Hays as Ted Striker who follows the love of his life Elaine (Julie Hagerty) onto a flight, this parody is comedy gold. Disaster strikes when the passengers and crew are struck down with food positioning, a series of slap stick gags and an appearance by Leslie Nielsen as a doctor follow.

Date Movie

Romantic comedies are under fire in this spoof which centres on Julie Jones (Alyson Hannigan) an overweight singleton who thinks she is destined for a life of loneliness. Cue Grant Fockyerdoder (Adam Campbell) the new man in Julie’s life that she instantly wants to marry. Before they can have their dream wedding and sail off into the sunset they must meet each other parents, obviously with crude and hilarious consequences. Expect spoofs of popular rom-coms Shallow Hall, There’s Something About Mary and Meet The Parents.

Blazing Saddles

Fabulously politically, this is an incorrect western spoof from Mel Brooks. In a town where everyone’s named Johnson, corrupt Hedley Lemar (Harvey Korman) appoints black sheriff Bart (Cleavon Little) in an attempt to cause unrest. Bart is the first black sheriff in the west and unlike the Johnson’s off the town, is an educated urbanite much to the dismay of Lemar.

Disaster Movie

Over one evening, a group of twenty-something’s find themselves in the midst of a series of natural disasters. On the way they encounter the likes of Batman, Hannah Montana, Indiana Jones and Michael Jackson. Carmen Electra and Matt Lanter star in this spoof that features comical impersonations of Amy Winehouse and Juno.

The Naked Gun: From The Files of Police Squad

Also starring Leslie Nielsen, Naked Gun is a hilarious parody of the detective movie using many of the gags from the original television series ‘Police Squad.’ With Queen Elizabeth II coming to town, an assignation plot involving Vincent Ludwig (Ricardo Montalban), a baseball player wreaks havoc resulting in some ridiculous gags.

Scary Movie

A year after they accidentally killed a man and got rid of his body, a group of teenagers are stalked by a masked serial killer. This laugh out loud spoof starring Anna Faris and Carmen Electra pokes fun at a number of horror movies including Scream, I Know What You Did Last Summer and The Sixth Sense.

High Anxiety

Spoofing the thrillers of Alfred Hitchcock, High Anxiety is a Psycho-Comedy written and directed by Mel Brooks. Dr. Richard Thorndyke (Mel Brooks), a new administrator at the Psychoneurotic Institute for the Very Very Nervous has been framed for murder. To save his job and clear his name he must first deal with his own condition: high anxiety. Expect parodies from popular Hitchcock films including The Birds, Psycho and Vertigo.

Not Another Teen Movie

This parody throws all the teen movie stereotypes into the mix; think popular cheerleaders, geeks, naked foreign exchange students and jocks. At John Hughes High School, Austin bets jock Jake that he can’t transform Janey, the schools nerd into prom queen. Standing in his way are Jake’s sister Catherine and popular cheerleader Pricilla. Expect comical spoofs of teen classics She’s All That, American Pie and Bring It On.

Epic Movie

Another spoof from the guys who bought us Scary Movie, Epic Movie follows four orphans from separate movie scenario’s who are connected after receiving golden tickets for a chocolate factory. After escaping from the evil Willy Wonka they stumble upon a wardrobe that leads to the enchanted world of ‘Gnarnia.’ Once they reach Gnarnia they come across a series of parodied characters from films including Harry Potter, Pirates of the Caribbean and Superman.
