Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant

  Come one; come all to the Cirque du Freak1! However, don't expect to see typical circus scenes, such as clowns trying to make you laugh, elephants balancing on rolling balls, or acrobats2 flying through the air. Instead, get ready for a world filled with freaks, strange creatures of the night, and vampires3. This is where the 16-year-old teenager, Darren Shan, is brought by his friend, Steve. Little do they know what they are getting into.

  The dark and mysterious vampire master of ceremonies4, Larten Crepsley, makes his entrance. Mr. Crepsley puts Darren through a lot of challenges after he turns him into one of his kind—a vampire. As the vampire's assistant, Darren learns to use his new-found powers and joins the close community of freaks, including a wolfman, a snakeboy, and a bearded5 lady. However, this is only the beginning of Darren's troubles. He gets himself into a war between two vampire clans6 that were previously at peace for 200 years. Will Darren be able to stop the conflict? To find out, join the fans of the already popular book series and catch "Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant" in theaters this month.
