Cirque Du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant
Mildly diverting comedy horror about a 14-year-old boy (Chris Massoglia) who breaks an ancient truce between two warring factions of vampires. Sideshow freaks and creatures of the night come to his aid. John C Reilly, Salma Hayek and Ken Watanabe save things from getting too schlocky. Paul About A Boy Weitz directs with a restrained humour.
