Suck movie sceneRock stars Iggy Pop, Alice Cooper, Alex Lifeson, Henry Rollins and Moby put a little bite in their act with the vampire spoof movie Suck, which was released on DVD and Blu-ray on Sept. 28, 2010, from Entertainment One.

Touted as a “rock-n-roll vampire spoof,” Suck tells the story of a bottom-shelf bar band called The Winners that’ll do anything for a record deal. After an encounter with a vampire that turns their singer (Hot Tub Time Machine‘s Jessica Paré) into a sexual dynamo, the group rockets to stardom but discovers that fame and fortune comes with a price. The movie also stars Dave Foley (TV’s The Kids in the Hall) and Malcolm McDowell (TV’s Heroes).

In the movie, rocker Henry Rollins plays Rock’n Roger on a national radio show, Alice Cooper is a sinister bartender and Iggy Pop plays a veteran music producer.
