A party at the GAT's Yorkville headquarters, September 11, honouring cast and crew before the TIFF 2009 world premiere screening of the new rock 'n roll vampire movie "Suck", was followed by a gala concert/party at Toronto's Phoenix Theatre, celebrating the recent US/International sales acquisition by Tim Brown's Joker Films of the $3.5 million, Toronto-lensed feature, written, directed and starring Rob "Phil The Alien" Stefaniuk.

“I am thrilled to be a part of the film 'Suck'", said Brown.

"Rob Stefaniuk is a tremendously talented writer/director/actor who has put together an enormously entertaining movie that audiences are going to love.”

"...Seemingly doomed to road trip doldrums and dives, the band The Winners breaks its slump when its female bass player (Jessica Paré) disappears one night with a hip vampire. She returns charged with sexual charisma that creates audience frenzy and eventually ensnares the rest of the band to trade their souls (literally) for fame and fortune..."

Filmed in Toronto, November 2008, "Suck" is jointly produced by Robin Crumley, VP of Capri Vision and Jeff Rogers, co-produced by Victoria Hirst for executive producers Jeff Sackman, Gabriella Martinelli, Terry Markus and Brad Peyton. DP was D. Gregor Hagey, with editing by Michele Conroy. John "The Doughboys" Kastner composed the soundtrack, Jim Goodall provided production design, costume designer was Mario Davignon with key makeup by Jordan Samuel.
