MTV has got its hands on the first clip of "The Vampire's Assistant" and has shared it for viewing pleasure. The snippet brings to attention the fight scene between Chris Massoglia's Darren and Josh Hutcherson's Steve. While earlier trailer presents the two as best friends, this clip exposes that they have become estranged from one another after Darren is turned into a vampire.

Darren yearns to have something more than a normal, ordinary and predictable life. When he and buddy Steve stumble upon a pamphlet of Cirque Du Freak, his life gets interesting. After paying a visit to the traveling freak show, he gets an offer he couldn't bear to resist, becoming a vampire. Little that he knows, by being a vampire he breaks a 200-year-old truce between two warring factions of vampires.

Adapted from the first three books of Darren Shan's "The Saga of Darren Shan" series, "The Vampire's Assistant" was filmed on a set constructed within New Orleans City Park. Originally known as "Cirque du Freak", the horror fantasy is directed by "In Good Company" helmer Paul Weitz. John C. Reilly, Salma Hayek, Ken Watanabe and Jane Krakowski are among the cast. It will open wide in theaters across the U.S. October 23.

"I know the differences will come as a shock to a lot of fans -- they certainly came as a shock to ME when I first read the script!! -- but we have to live with the fact that the movie is its own beast. It's not a true adaptation of the books, but a re-imagining of them. You can moan about what the movie-makers haven't done, in which case you're doomed to go away miserable -- or you can treat it as a whole new story and give it a chance to win you over on its own terms" It makes sense.

you got your synopsis wayyyyy wrong. That is what the trailer and clip may make it out to be but the story is nothing like that.
