True Blood heads to high school in 1st trailer for Vampire Academy

If you’re not getting enough bloody, sexy vampire stories elsewhere, then you’re in luck — because Vampire Academy is taking all that craziness back to high school.

The first trailer for the upcoming supernatural drama flick, based on Richelle Mead’s popular book series, is surely aiming to fill that gaping box-office hole left by Twilight. But judging by the footage, it has a lot more in common with the fang-banging of HBO’s True Blood.

It might just be high school kids, but there looks to be more than enough sex, blood and freakiness to go around. Toss in a bit of a Vampire Diaries vibe as well, and this movie could hit the bloody sweet spot to kick off yet another young adult-aimed supernatural franchise.

Much as Twilight did (at the time), this one also stars a pretty, young cast of relative unknowns. Come February 2014, get ready to meet Zoey Deutch, Lucy Fry, Danila Kozlovsky, Gabriel Byrne, Sarah Hyland, Joely Richardson and the rest of the gang.
