So, has anyone painted this up with that sparkly craft paint so he resembles a "Twilight" vampire?


Thought not.

Me either.

{What ridiculous excuses for vampires]!

The last time I painted something up in sparkly paint I nearly got arrested for indecent exposure.....

I think I saw that guy riding one of the Metro buses in Seattle.

No wonder the Lugosi estate is so particular.

The teen girls at my school are hysterical over the book/movie (I've read/seen neither, nor plan to). A reviewer figured out why they're so successful. The author was very clever to describe the pretty vamp boy in great and repetitive detail, but gave relatively little description to the angsty lead girl character. That way, any girl who reads the book naturally imagines herself in her role. Very clever tactic, that.

My daughter is 10 and has read all the books and seen all the movies. The net effect of her interest in Twilight is that it's peaked a broader interest in vampires. We've recently watched Nosferatu (1922), Salem's Lot (1979) and Dracula (1979) together and she wants to see more. She's even expressed an interest in reading Bram Stoker's novel - which is something I've never done. I'm happy that her interest has been stoked.

Good for her! :thumbsup: Reading is fundamental, as they used to say. Lot of people are put off reading Dracula b/c they imagine it's like reading Frankenstein, which can be a chore. But it is not anything like reading Shelley. I find Stoker draws you in really well, and there are some good spooky parts she'll probably like (or not)...the baby in the bag, when they track down Lucy, etc.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't like to read the Frankenstein novel. I started it back when I was a teenager and never could stand to finish it.

Dracula, on the other hand, was excellent reading, from what I remember, and I really enjoyed that book.

Bruce, may I recommend you try to grab Bernie Wrightson's Frankenstein? 'Tis Mary Shelley illustrated with Bernie's inimitable pen-and-ink drawings...helps to add a little extra POP to the narrative.

The scene in Stoker's Dracula where they break into the bedroom and find Dracula turning Mina into a minion is one of the best written, most terrifying scenes I've ever read.

Is Wrightson's Frankenstein still available? I gave my copy away to a friend about 15 years ago, but the illustrations were amazing.
