The Vampire's Assistant

The Cirque du Freak series is apparently popular among young adult readers who have already plowed through the Twilight books. Here, the first book gets translated to the big screen. Would-be hunk Chris Massoglia ("Wanted") stars as a teen who meets a mysterious magician (John C. Reilly) at a freak show and agrees to become his half-vampire "assistant" for some allegedly non-gay reason. 108 minutes PG-13.
