The Vampires Are Coming!

I myself have long been a fan of anything to do with vampires. “The Lost Boys” and “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” are examples of my favorite movie and Tv show about them. From the episode of “Are you afraid of the dark” where the neighbors are vampires, to the dressing up as one almost every Halloween as a kid, they are awesome. So now that Vampires are the hottest new trend in almost everything, it seems that we have a few new shows coming out that help showcase these fascinating creatures. The whole “Twilight” phenomenon blows me away. I guess it makes sense, vampires are sensual, sexy and seductive, therefore attractive to lonely women who like to read such as housewives, single ladies etc. I am by no way stereotyping that these are the only people that like “Twilight”, but they seem to be a majority. Also, with HBO and the series “True Blood”, which happened to come out at the perfect moment for vampire fans. Anyways, the point of this article is that there are some ridiculous copycat shows and movies coming out thanks to the sucess of “True Blood”, which is pretty much rated R “Twilight.” Here are a few examples, I will let you have your own opinion. I feel this is just the tip of the iceberg, and over the next few months we will se and hear about more things coming down the pipeline.

Buffy The Vampire Slayer
I hear they are thinking of making a remake of the 1992 movie, or even a reboot without Sarah Michelle Gellar. Thoughts?
