MPI Media Group’s My Sucky Teen Romance, the breakthrough feature film from 18-year-old writer-director Emily Hagins (interview), is now on DVD and Blu-ray. We’ve landed an exclusive new look at the film where the gang check to see if their friend is a vampire.
My Sucky Teen Romance is the third feature written and directed by Hagins, who made her debut – at age 12(!) – with the horror film Pathogen. Working out of Austin, Tex., Hagins has created an original new movie about “a group of teens whose normal romantic awkwardness becomes compounded when they discover that some of the kids they’ve just met at a sci-fi convention are honest-to-goodness neck-biting vampires.”
The young cast includes Tina Rodriguez (Machete, Inglourious Basterds), Devin Bonneacute’e (TV’s “Chase”), Lauren Lee and, in their movie debuts, Elaine Hurt and Patrick Delgado.
