Whether he’s trying to adapt difficult William Faulkner novels or retelling the making of one of the worst movies ever made, he moves in strange directions and his latest grasp for greatness might be a masterwork.

In his vision, the film is now features original star Tori Spelling as the titular mother trying to save her daughter from a new sort of a lesbian vampire danger.
