Universal Pictures just released the movie trailer for the upcoming horror-comedy Cirque de Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant, about a kid who goes to a freak show only to discover that it’s run by a vampire. Bored with his current life, he decides to accept the vampire’s invitation to become one himself. He then begins to learn about all the cool new powers he has. John C. Reilly plays the elder vampire.
Frankly, the movie doesn’t look all that funny. The trailer has its moments, but it’s hard to tell whether the film is really going to be funny or not. Most of the jokes evoke chuckles but nothing more. Watch the trailer for the movie and let me know what you think:
