My Sucky Teen Romance movie scene

Elaine Hurt is trapped in My Sucky Teen Romance.

On 17-year-old Kate’s (Elaine Hurt) last weekend in town before heading to college, she and her geeky friends head to SpaceCON, the local sci-fi/fantasy convention. There, Kate meets Paul (Patrick Delgado), a recently turned teen vampire (who takes advantage of the gathering’s costume atmosphere by actually dressing as a bloodsucker). But when Kate tries to make a move on him, he gives her the hickey from hell.  Kate and her pals then discover that Paul is not the only vampire at the convention, and it is up to them to kick some vampire butt, or Kate’s going to be attending permanent night school from now on!

Written and directed by 18-year-old Hagins, the film also stars young actors Gina Rodriguez, Lauren Vunderink and Lauren Lee.

My Sucky Teen Romance premiered at the 2011 SXSW Film Festival, is the third feature  from young Ms.Hagins. At the age of 12, Hagins was the subject of Zombie Girl! The Movie, a documentary about the making of her first  feature, Pathogen.

Prior to the release of the DVD and Blu-ray, the unrated film will embark on a four-city fan tour with Dark Sky Films and Ain’t It Cool News, beginning with a premiere at Cinespace in Los Angeles.

No bonus features are on the discs.
