If the Twilight saga and The Vampire Diaries were not enough, cashing in on the popularity of the genre among young-adults is Vampire Academy.
The film is yet another high school romance, although focusing on vampires alone. The good vampires or the Moroi possess magical powers, but are mortal and thrive on blood donors, unlike the immortal and evil bloodsuckers, Strigoi. Guardians of the Moroi are the half-human-half-vampire species called Dhampir, who must protect them from the Strigoi. The harmless vampires study in St. Vladimir's Academy, a college hidden deep in the forest.
An accident helps the ass-kicking, fast-talking protagonist Rose (Dhampir) and her kind and soft-spoken best friend Lissa (the Moroi princess) escape the academy and enjoy a normal 'Facebook and Iphone 5' life in the city. But two years later, their cover is blown and they must return to the academy to face the usual high school bullying and a deadly threat. Can Rose protect Lissa?
If you like campus romances disguised as thrillers, you are bound to be entertained. And if you happen to be a fangirl/fanboy of those good-looking brooding vampires, then you're in for a treat as Mark Waters blends just the right amount of action, humour, suspense and romance to make his adaptation engaging enough.
Unlike Twilight, the series doesn't take itself too seriously, which is a huge relief as we are spared pain and emotional distress. The light-hearted proceedings keep the atmosphere alive. Rose Hathaway (Zoey Deutch) is quirky, smart and isn't blinded by romance like Bella. Lissa Dragomir (Lucy Fry) isn't your typical damsel in distress either. Lissa's love interest Christian (British actor, Dominic Sherwood) bears a slight resemblance to Robert Pattinson, proving the latter will always be the certified poster boy of the vampires.
In spite of using the standard elements of a high school drama (read: Mean Girls-meets-The Princess Diaries), Vampire Academy doesn't suck (pun intended)! It's about friendship, high-school crushes, romance and much more.
For the role of Natalie Dashkov, actress Sarah Hyland has an unusual audition when she gave it over Skype.
Actor Dominic Sherwood was cast right in the end just before the film's shooting schedule began.
