The Canadian vampire horror/comedy flick Suck gets released to DVD and Blu-ray in the US tomorrow. The film was released to theaters in Canada back in October of 2009 and had its US premier at the SXSW Film Festival in March in Austin, TX on Wednesday March 17th. Alex Lifeson makes an appearance in the movie as a border guard. You can get a glimpse of him in the film's trailer at this link (at about the 1:50 mark) and here's a video of Alex's complete scenes.

Suck was shot entirely in Toronto and also stars Malcolm McDowell, Dave Foley, Henry Rollins, Iggy Pop, Moby, Carol Pope, Jessica Pare, Alice Cooper and his daughter Calico, and Dimitri Coates. Alex and Rob Stefaniuk talk about the movie in this 102.1 The Edge interview podcast (at about the 14 minute mark, runs 9 minutes) from just before the Canadian premier at the Toronto Film Festival. Here are some photos of Alex from the Suck premier: [photo 1] [photo 2] [photo 3]. And here's a bootleg video of Alex at the Suck after party at the Phoenix Theatre in Toronto. He joined the band Burning Brides onstage for the song Flesh and Bone which appears on the movie's soundtrack.
