The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn

After 'Twilight': Where Do Vampires in Pop Culture Go From Here?

If Dracula wrote the book on the modern vampire fiction, Twilight creator Stephenie Meyer's four Twilight books (and their five film adaptations) have given it an enormously unfaithful, enormously successful rewrite. Even before the release of Breaking Dawn--Part 2, the Twilight franchise had earned $2.5 billion dollars at the worldwide box-office, and Breaking Dawn--Part 2 is on track to make hundreds of millions more.

Nooooo.... sparkly vampires!

Should vampires sparkle?

Vampires are definitely in vogue right now. Browse through any bookstore's racks and you'll find a score of novels with ‘vampire' in the title. This theme is especially notable in the young adult lit sections, where the reader will observe pieces such as the Twilight series, Vampire Diaries, Vampire Kisses, Vampire Academy and, my personal favorite, Vampire Beach. Has anyone noticed a trend?

Black Vampires in Film

Vampires have always been known as seductive creatures of the night They have pale skin, glowing eyes, and very sharp sexy phallic like fangs. When one says vampire they often think of the very dark Gary Oldman in Bram Stoker’s Dracula, Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise in Interview with a Vampire, and of course the beautiful vampires in the Twilight movies. But so often there are another group of vampires that are often overlooked- Black Vampires. They are very sensual and sexy creatures. They range from the blaxpoitation of early film to very strong lead characters such as Blade.

Have vampires been a socialization tool for the last two generations?

The last two decades have brought about a welcoming of vampires in society. Long gone are the days of children cowering in the dark from fear of the vampire. The 1970’s opened the door to change that not only affected the image of the vampire but how we accepted them into our lives.
