After Edward: What Will Be The Next Big Post-Vampire Craze?

Team Edward or Team Jacob. “True Blood” and “The Vampire Diaries.” It’s clear that blood-sucking vampires are having a cultural moment. In fact, since the first “Twilight” movie was released in 2008, vampire-related products have grossed more than $7 billion worldwide. That’s a whole lot of blood at the bloodbank.

But “Twilight” and “True Blood” won’t be around forever (sad but true). So we’ve provided a list of several hot-to-trot contenders ready to replace the vampire craze with all the Burger King merchandising tie-ins your heart desires. Keep reading »

Quotable: “True Blood” Creator Alan Ball Takes A Shot At “Twilight”

“To me, vampires are sex. I don’t get a vampire story about abstinence. I’m 53. I don’t care about high school students. I find them irritating and uninformed.”

– Alan Ball, who brought “True Blood” to the masses, takes a well-deserved shot at Stephenie Meyer‘s Twilight series, which I hear has implied sex in the fourth novel that I’m too frustrated to read. [Just Jared] Keep reading »

How To Write Like Stephenie Meyer

The website “I Write Like” analyzes a block of text and tells you which famous author the writing is reminiscent of. Depending on what article I put in, my writing style is either similar to Jane Austen (um, boring?) or Stephen King (supermarket trash?). Writing like Stephenie Meyer, the woman behind the hugely popular Twilight series, is even easier. Clearly. [via BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Quotable: Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg Majorly Spoils Key Moment In “Breaking Dawn”

“The childbirth—all the scenes, I feel—should be on screen. Would we actually see Edward’s teeth through the placenta? I don’t think so. I don’t think we need to see that.”

—Melissa Rosenberg, the screenwriter behind all three “Twilight” flicks, talks about how they plan to take out a few gory details from the childbirth scene in “Breaking Dawn.” Now, I know I’m the only person on the planet who hasn’t read the book—but thanks for ruining it, Melissa. [People]

“Vampires Suck” Looks Like It … Sucks


I’m still reeling from the atrocity that was “Date Movie,” but now Aaron Seltzer and Jason Friedberg are back to make fun of “Twilight” and all the other fangy movies and TV shows with the flick “Vampires Suck.” I’m not sure why they wasted all that production value on churning out these movies. But even more so, I’m annoyed at how out of control they’ve gotten. Is it really necessary to parody like 40 movies at once and insert a zillion pop culture references? What does “Alice in Wonderland” have to do with vampires? And why do the actors look more like the actors from “Twilight” than the actors from “Twilight” look like themselves? I’ll admit that the Black Eyed Peas joke made me chuckle, but it just seems silly to parody a movie that is already so ridiculously silly half the time. That paper-cut scene actually happened! That’s not parody. That’s just mimicking. [NYMag.com] Keep reading »
