Cirque Du Freak:The Vampire's Assistant, based on the popular series of books by Darren Shan, is a fantasy-adventure about a teenager who unknowingly breaks a 200-year-old truce between two warring factions of vampires. Pulled into a fantastic life of misunderstood sideshow freaks and grotesque creatures of the night, one teen will vanish from the safety of a boring existence and fulfill his destiny in a place drawn from nightmares.

16-year-old Darren (Chris Massoglia) was like most kids in his suburban neighborhood. He hung out with his best friend, got decent grades and usually stayed out of trouble. But when he and his buddy stumble upon a traveling freak show, things begin to change inside Darren. That's the exact moment when a vampire named Larten Crepsley (John C. Reilly) turns him into something, well, bloodthirsty.

Newly undead, he joins the Cirque Du Freak, a touring sideshow filled with monstrous creatures from a snakeboy and a wolfman to a bearded lady (Salma Hayek) and a gigantic barker (Ken Watanabe). As Darren flexes his newfound powers in this dark world, he becomes a treasured pawn between the vampires and their deadlier counterparts. As war looms between the vampires and their evil counterparts, one boy's bravery will become humanity's last hope.

 A different view on the world of vampires

| | See all FatBuoy's reviews (5)

I saw this at the cinema when it first came out, more on a whim than actually expecting anything other than a typical teen-fest of ghouls, ghosties etc. etc. and I was very pleasantly surprised. Whilst there are some stereotypical American teen moments, the film as a whole offers a different view on the world of weird which lies just outside the world we all inhabit. The storyline is thoughtful and constructed to allow for proper character development. It also leaves it well placed for a follow up although I personally prefer Salma Hyack without her beard. Whilst not as dark and melodramatic at the Underworld trilogy, it is in its own way ploughing a different kind of supernatural furrow. Give it a go, who knows, you may (like me) be pleasantly surprised.

Hold up only 2 reviews inc mine! I was initially avoiding watching this movie cos the 12 rating.Watched it 5 mins ago, glad i purchased it on Blu-ray.An hour & 49mins of great entertainment, quality effects, and some good laughs.All the actors are very good.This is already a classic in my collection and well worth 5 stars.This is about the freaks as much as the vampires,a very different kind of of vamp movie.I have watched 2 fantastic films this week, Avatar & this one.But i get the feeling cirque du freak might not be getting the full appreciation it certainly deserves.
