Forget The Sopranos, Meet the Vampire Mob!
“We are all famous to a few people.”
He’s a hitman and a vampire, and he just found out his mother-in-law is moving in for eternity.
Got your attention yet? Good, because this catchy title is what first intrigued me into taking a further look into the webseries that is the Vampire Mob. Created by writer/director Joe Wilson, Vampire Mob is a unique blend of crime and comedy of the intelligent kind. No slapstick here, but genuine laughs provided by Wilson’s smart and witty scriptwriting.
Lending to the entertainment value of the show is Don Grigioni (John Colella) who plays the smart-ass, vampire hitman in which one of his priorities, aside from watching his own back, is to provide food for he and his wife Annie Grigioni (Reamy Hall); food being blood. Subsequently, since Don’s mother-in-law, Virginia Jones (Marcia Wallace), is moving in, Don’s task of bringing home food has become daunting. No man would want to upset their mother-in-law, right?
Virginia, now a creature of the night, thanks to Annie turning her (yes, her own daughter) for what seems to be a pretty smart idea; Virginia is now able to provide Annie and her sister (who is a non-vamp) the long-term/life duty of being babysitter to their children, granted she doesn’t go out in the sun. Of course, there is the matter of the fangs which will undoubtedly scare the kids. But fear not for prior to being turned, Virginia was relegated to using false teeth, that’s right dentures.
Now in it’s Second Season, this is merely a taste (no pun intended) of what Vampire Mob has to offer!
Vampire Mob is not to be missed; the great camera work, acting and writing for the show displays just how this could be a show worthy of being on television and not just on the web; it is truly a good time!
