Did you know that Cirque du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant is a book first published in 2000? Apparently it is Book 2 in The Saga of Darren Shan. Interestingly enough, these books are also written by who else? Darren Shan. (a.k.a. Darren O’Shaughnessy which is his real name, and his other pen name is D.B. Shan F.Y.I.)
And here I thought The Vampire’s Assistant was just another mind-to-script-to-screen movie hopping on the vampire hype wagon taking full advantage of the fang fever sweeping the world! I guess it’s good to have fangs these days!
Will you go see it? Or will you, like me, wait for that other fang-tabulous movie that is on the near horizon? The countdown has begun, BTW!
