A few months ago, everyone's favourite 'gay in his art and straight in his life' artist James Franco decided that he would remake the 1996 TV movie Mother, May I Sleep With Danger?

The original film starred Tori Spelling as a college student who falls in love with the perfect man (Ivan Sergei), only to have her mother realise that her daughter's perfect boyfriend is a crazy, dangerous lunatic. So, it's the plot of every '90s straight-to-VHS thriller, which is obviously a good thing.

James Franco is making a lesbian vampire film because of course he is
Peak Franco.

Franco, being the ~creative genius~ that he is, though, decided to "revamp" (get it???! BECAUSE IT'S A VAMPIRE FILM! CLEVER JOKE, JAMES FRANCO!) the cult fave, and turn it into a lesbian vampire film. Tori Spelling returns, playing the titular mother this time around, and Franco also stars, along with Leila George and Emily Meade. 

Today, the trailer is here, and it looks campy and insane and like it may be everyone's new favourite film. Have a look:

The film will premiere on US network Lifetime on June 18, so you've got mere weeks to plan your viewing parties and drinking games.
