The online British and Irish TV guide website Digiguide is reporting the fangtastic news that Nickelodeon UK and Ireland and Nickelodeon HD UK, the number one commercial kids TV network in the UK, will premiere the popular movie I Kissed A Vampire, a rock musical in which a desperate teen tries to save himself and the girl he loves after discovering he's transforming into a vampire, on Friday 3rd March 2017 at 7:00pm, as part of Nick UK & Eire's nick@nite evening programming block!
In I Kissed a Vampire (2012), haunted by bizarre dreams about Goth rocker Trey Sylvania (Drew Seeley, High School Musical, Pitch Perfect), and experiencing a growing lust for blood, Dylan Knight (Lucas Grabeel, Pinky Malinky, Glenn Martin DDS, High School Musical), a not-so-average teenager finds himself transforming into a vampire! It all started when he was bitten by a voracious fanged exchange student, and it's a process he is desperate to stop - but how? His demented dentist can t do anything about Dylan's aching teeth and emerging fangs, and the anti-bloodsucking pills he gets from his para-psychologist just give him a rash. Dylan is terrified and he doesn't know what to do - especially about his beautiful girlfriend Sara Lane (Adrian Slade).
Every time Dylan gets close to Sara, his fangs pop out and he gets an overwhelming urge to bite her. He isn't sure how much longer he can stop himself, so he's been avoiding her and she has no idea why. Confused and hurt, Sara sings about her frustration. Dylan knows he's got to explain himself, and vocalises his torment.
Rounding out the cast is Chris Coppola (The Middle, Santa Paws 2: The Santa Pups, The Search for Santa Paws, The Polar Express, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul) as Dr. Dan Helsing, Mekia Cox (My Brother and Me, Impastor, Modern Family, Gotham) as Nikki No, Amy Paffrath as Luna Dark, Emily Morris as Desiree Damned, Lori Lively (Alfred Hitchcock Presents) as Dr. Lori Light, Sally Slade as Bitty Kilgore, Katie Seeley (Noah Knows Best) as Lydia Bloodworthy, Autumn Grabeel as Penny Plasma, Mike Slade as Dr. Payne, and Tahlena Chikami (Parks and Recreation, See Dad Run, How to Rock, The Middle) as a Exchange Student.
The movie features 17 songs, and is based on the I Kissed a Vampire vampire rock musical web series starring Lucas Grabeel, Drew Seeley, and introducing Adrian Slade. The series, comprising of three acts, was one of the most popular webseries ever to appear on iTunes.
