Far more diabolically evil -- and infinitely more fun -- was Alex Munoz's bloody 17-minute romp entitled Spout (which received its world premiere at the festival). With all the attention recently bestowed upon sexy vampire tales like the Twilight Saga films, it's refreshing to see someone give vampirism a delicious new twist.
Spout features an unusual pair of vampires who like to hunt as a team: young Bobby (Tristan Bice-Bey) and Oma (Rena Owen), his dragon lady of a grandmother. After tiring of lame challenges like the two male twins (Anthony Quinonez and Mario Quinonez, Jr.) who go to school with Bobby, grandma and grandson set their eyes on bigger, juicier game.
Bobby's father, Wilhelm (Brandon Hirsch) is eager to get married again. A handsome, dark-skinned man, he seems to have a penchant for bimbos. Tasty bimbos filled with lots of blood.
Carefully drugging Wilhelm's coffee each time he brings a young woman home for dinner, Oma waits near the bathroom with a mallet in her hand for the moment when her son's date will need to urinate. Soon, there is a succulent young corpse offering a fine dining experience in the shower stall. While Wilhelm sleeps, Oma wastes no time shoving a silver spout into each victim's body so that she and her grandson can take turns drinking fresh blood.
When Wilhelm finally finds a buxom blonde he really likes, the deadly duo decide to move on. Dressing up one of the undead twins to replace Bobby, they drive off in a taxi, headed for new and frequent feeding frenzies. Needless to say, Munoz's film delighted the audience.
