Vampire Academy Soundtrack

Posted on Updated on


The listing for the Vampire Academy Soundtrack, due for release on February 4, is out on Amazon [US/UK].

With a month left before the film is released, there have been many exciting developments in the “Vampire Academy” world.  A slew of new stills from the film have been popping up on the Internet and the final trailer is set for release on January 17. The premiere is scheduled for February 3 in Los Angeles and US residents can enter a competition to be Danila Kozlovsky’s date on the red carpet. Further, the film’s release date has been pre-poned by a week in Australia and the film is now releasing there on March 6 instead of March 14.

But without further ado, here are the songs listed on the VAMovie Soundtrack (subject to change).

1) Jaymes Bullet – In Your Grave

[UPDATE – February 1] This song has now been released and the explicit version is available on the artist’s SoundCloud. Listen to this really awesome track and make sure to leave a comment for the artist.

2) Sky Ferreira – Red Lips

3) Max Frost – Nice and Slow

4) Goldfrapp – Thea

5) Natalia Kills – Boys Don’t Cry

6) Iggy Azalea – Bounce

7) Bear In Heaven – Sinful Nature

8) Naughty Boy – Think About It

9) Rats – Rainy Milo

10) Katy Perry – Spiritual

11) Au Revoir Simone – Crazy

12) CHVRCHES – Bela Lugosi’s Dead

This cover of ”Bela Lugosi’s Dead” by CHVRCHES will be an exclusive version for the Vampire Academy soundtrack and we’ll have to wait until the release of the album to listen to it! According to Mark Waters, this song will play during the end credits of the film and he “dare[s] anyone to try walking out on the closing credits when their [Chvrches] version of Bela is playing!” In the meantime, you can check out the original song below by Bauhaus –

UPDATE – The song has been released on January 27, 2014 via CHVRCHES soundclound.

You can also listen to it on YouTube, below –

13.Goldfrapp – Felt Mountain

[UPDATED – January 29, 2014] The album is now available to pre-order from the iTunes store [US] and this album includes another song. A mostly instrumental, ethereal and calming tune, Goldfrapp’s previously released Felt Mountain. It is unknown if this song will be included in the CD version of the album. Listen to the song below

The following is the description given about the forthcoming album on Amazon –

This eclectic soundtrack to the major motion picture VAMPIRE ACADEMY brings together the music from the movie including tracks by Katy Perry, Goldfrapp, Naughty Boy, Iggy Azalea, Sky Ferreira and many more. It’s also the only album to include the unforgettable end credit track, a cover of the Bauhaus song ‘Bella Lugosi is Dead’ by indie darlings CHVRCHES.

Seems like the VAMovie soundtrack has everything, from Pop to Alternative and Indie to Hip Hop. Further, as director Mark Waters indicated back in October at NYCC that there would be at least one original song (Jaymes Bullet – In Your Grave) and a cover song (CHVRCHES – Bela Lugosi is Dead), so could the songs indicated in the brackets be those songs?

Which song is your favourite from the Soundtrack?

Vampire Academy Theatrical Trailer

Posted on Updated on

The thing with God’s Green Earth is that when it is night time in half the world, the other side is still rocking on. But things like these are only trivial for fans of Vampire Academy who all convened at the launch of the theatrical trailer and boy was it GOOD!!

Check out the trailer below in FULL HD!



So we start off with the sounds of crickets in the background


And we move to the fridge – part of the opening sequence in the book.


Soon we are whisked away to the beautiful backdrop of Montana, the setting for the Academy.


The gorgeous, regal Lissa Dragomir and guys, the cat is too cute – but it is looking right at US!


Here is the Academy you guys, the beautiful Charterhouse School in Surrey and damn it looks magical!


Flocking to the Church at night, the lighting is freaking amazing!




WHOA! VIKTOR …. What happened to you?

Lets meet the FACULTY!

Contrary to popular belief, Dimitri can be found lurking around throughout the trailer!

Vampire Academy: New HD Stills!

Posted on Updated on

So many VA feels! If you haven’t died yet, wait for it… This could finish you off.

EW have released 5 new HD stills from the upcoming movie, Vampire Academy, here.

Be sure to check out Director Mark Waters’ captions for some insight into these scenes.


Zoey Deutch looking badass as Rose Hathaway.

Rose”This is a little bit of a leap off the book,” teases Vampire Academy director Mark Waters, ”but Rose has a brief moment where she has a chance to kill a Strigoi, but then she hesitates because she’s still a novice, and fails to go through with it. I have to keep it a little cryptic because I don’t want to reveal too many things that happen in the movie, but it is her brief moment of trying to do something, but her training is not quite up to it yet.”


BEWARE: DRAGOZERA FEELS. Dominic Sherwood and Lucy Fry getting all snuggly as Christian and Lissa.

Christian and Lissa”If you know the story between Christian and Lissa, they have an attraction and Rose tries to sabotage the relationship,” explains Waters, ”but then when they come to the dance is when they come together for the first time and actually bend to the fact that they like each other and want to be boyfriend/girlfriend. So it’s a very nice moment where they realize they’re allowed to be together.”

Waters continues, ”Their [chemistry is] fantastic. It was interesting because Dominic Sherwood was cast very late in the game. We saw many people for the part and weren’t happy with anybody until Dominic came in at a very late juncture. This [scene] was actually shot on the first or second day of shooting. We just threw them into the fire. They start slow dancing, and [we said], ‘You’re going to kiss now.’ And they literally had only met once before. But they did it with gusto and didn’t lose any enthusiasm.”
OH EM GEE. The Romitri feels are OFF THE CHARTS on this one! Just KISS already!

kiss”This is an interesting one because there’s a running gag in the movie where Rose tries to surprise attack Dimitri, and this is the first time she tries to do it,” previews Waters. ”She says, ‘I should have had you!’ And he says, ‘Well, keep it up. Keep trying to attack. It’s good training for both of us.’ But the tension of this moment is nice because after he tackles her and pins her down, they realize, ‘Wait a second. I’m still holding you down. And we’re still really close to each other.’ It’s a bit of an uncomfortable, awkward, romantic moment when they realize that they’re this close to each other and they have to kind of quickly disengage.”


The beginning of a beautiful, albeit forbidden, romance. Zoey and Danila, ladies and gentlemen. 

training”[Dimitri is] kind of her mentor and trainer,” says Waters. ”Rose comes back to the academy after having missed a year from training and is kind of out of shape and not as impressive as she once was. But after him taking her under his wing and really busting her in training, she gets better and better at these martial-arts moves that she’ll need later.”


And with every teen movie, comes High School cliques. Aaron, Mia and Camille, played by Edward Holcroft, Sami Gayle and Bronté Norman-Terrell.

mia3”This is actually a moment right when Mia is playing a prank on Lissa,” explains Waters. ”It’s Lissa’s first day of school after coming back to the academy, and she’s leaning down to have a drink at the water fountain. And Mia — who’s a water magic user — causes the water fountain to explode and completely splatter her face and clothes.”

Thanks to both EW and Mark Waters for this amazing article!
