Bloodsucka Jones vs The Creeping Death is the follow-up to the more simply titled Bloodsucka Jones from 2013. If, like me, you didn’t see it, don’t worry, there’s an animated recap that will tell you what you need to know.
But now it seems the vampires, or at least Stewart (Matt Kelly) and Kenny (William Cutting) have returned. Well somewhat returned, it’s complicated. And this time there are zombies as well. Bloodsucka Jones (Preston Gant) is going to have to put his Afro on and get back to business. Luckily, he’s got his sidekick Vanessa (Maria Canapino) to help him. David (Justin Armao) is back as well. And he’s teamed up with Timmy (Brian Girard), the younger and dumber brother of the original film’s Tony. But whether they count as help isn’t exactly clear.
Bloodsucka Jones vs The Creeping Death isn’t really a parody of blaxploitation films or horror films. It’s more like 96 minutes worth of jokes about whatever writer/director Justin Armao thought was funny. There is the barest thread of a plot, but even that is all but ignored as jokes about weight gain, roller derby and flesh-eating fly by. Along with any and all other subjects you can think of.
How random is the humour? At one point, David and Timmy hear a strange noise. “What was that?” “Sounds like a cat on a skateboard.” Followed by a cat skateboarding past. Is that random enough for you? It’s almost as random as the familiar faces making cameos through the film. They include Jennifer Runyon (Charles in Charge, To All a Goodnight), Nick Principe (Sky Sharks, The 27 Club), Noel Jason Scott (Lillith, Blade: The Iron Cross), Jason Trost (How to Save Us, FP2: Beats of Rage) and James Balsamo (The Litch, Hanukkah).
It’s not entirely my style of comedy, but I still found plenty of it absurdly amusing. So if you like that kind of film, you should love Bloodsucka Jones vs. The Creeping Death. I apologize for the short review, but that’s really all I can say about it. Watch the trailer, see if it makes you laugh, and act accordingly.
Bloodsucka Jones vs The Creeping Death is available to stream and on Blu-ray. You can hit up the film’s Facebook page for more information.
