Jenn Proske and Matt Lanter star in 'Vampires Suck.'

"Vampire Suck," a broad sendup of the "Twilight Saga" films and books, makes its point and runs out of steam long before it ends. Even so, teens who are into those films and books will likely appreciate the spoofery and get even the subtlest jabs, though subtlety is not what "Vampires Suck" is mostly about.

Moody 18-year-old Becca Crane (Jenn Proske) moves back to the Pacific Northwest to live with her sheriff dad (Diedrich Bader). She falls for the oddly pale and sparkly Edward Sullen (Matt Lanter) and his clan of high-class vampires, while the furry, werewolf-ish Jacob (Chris Riggi) falls for her. There are bad vampires eager for Becca's blood, and it all plays out at the prom.

The bottom line: The PG-13 rating is pushed to the limit with phoney-looking violence that features heads knocked off, limbs severed and necks bitten, along with lots of sexual innuendo, near-frontal nudity, full total backview nudity and nonexplicit, comically played sexual situations. The dialogue has midrange profanity and crude sexual slang. The innuendo and language are far stronger than in the films being spoofed, making "Vampires Suck" more for high-schoolers.
