Welcome back to The MonsterGrrls' 31 Days Of Halloween, and today we report that Cirque Du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant will be opening in theaters this Friday, October 23rd!
Based on the popular book series by Darren Shan, Cirque Du Freak follows the story of Darren (Chris Massoglia), an ordinary teen who wants a more exciting life, but gets a lot more than he bargained for when he encounters a traveling freak show led by vampire Larten Crepsley (John C. Reilly), who transforms Darren into a vampire. Brought into the world of the freaks, the newly undead Darren accidentally breaks a 200-year-old truce between two warring vampire factions, and things rapidly get, well, freakier from there. This terrifically dark movie is our theatrical-release pick for the Halloween season, and is also featured as a part of Universal's Halloween Horror Nights attractions at Orlando.
