Full Parody Movie of 'Twilight' Called 'Untitled Vampire Spoof' Coming Soon

It was all but inevitable that the creators of the Scary Movie series, Date Movie, Epic Movie, Disaster Movie, and Meet The Spartans (Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer) would be putting together a vampire spoof movie, "Untitled Vampire Spoof" now that the genre has picked up in speed thanks to, well, Twilight, True Blood, and The Vampire Diaries.

According to Dread Central, "the film -- whatever it is -- has already earned itself a PG-13 rating and will be in theatres on August 18th."

Cinematical's Scott Weinberg predicts that this project is "sure to hit theaters with a big, hollow thud," and Movie Cultists' Scott Yacyshyn says "The movie is supposed to be a spoof on the vampiric tropes of Twilight, but if you’ve seen even a minute of any of the other mind-numbing SelzBerg movies you know it’s just a loosely tied-up series of jokes (not jokes, really: just characters literally saying what they are referencing, exactly)."

So, while the "Untitle Vampire Spoof" might be picking up on the popularity of series like Twilight, it probably won't be catering to that audience (and thusly enjoying the Saga's successes).
