Behind-the-Scenes of Twilight





Behind-the-scenes of Twilight (click for larger image)Ah, yes! Cute kids! Bare branches! Wire work! You can just smell the happiness in the air when it comes to the cotton candy sweetness that is the upcoming slice of teeny-bopper horror Twilight.

Eagle-eyed reader Hunter Lurie pointed us in the direction of a bunch of on-set practice photos that have seared their way into my memory. Sure I could be discounting this movie completely but ... but ... Screw it. I don't have any buts. I think this flick is gonna inhale a copious amount of yak balls.

Nevertheless, we here at Dread Central make it a practice to cover all types of horror even when it's just on the fringe of our genre. Someone out there is interested in this, and I say more power to them. Whatever makes you happy! Click here for the rest of the pictures.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to buy some Hello Kitty merch on eBay so that I can have the pleasure of burning it on my front lawn while dancing nude around the soaring flames of burning rainbows, unrequited happiness, and pencil shavings littered from the plastic of a thousand sharpeners. Huzzah.

I'm not sure I get why everyone's so down on this, site unseen (granted I haven't read the source material, but from what I've heard it's not poorly written, whatever your take on the subject matter). I think there's a place in the genre for films that are "kiddie" or more light-weight fare.

I'd be willing to bet there are a lot of adult horror fans now who started off as young kids being interested in just that kind of thing, which led to the more grown up stuff. Not everyone starts off being into the hardcore movies and whatnot. Things that die hard horror fans might not consider horror, or that really aren't even horror, can open the door to the genre for people. Heck, my childish enjoyment of Nancy Drew mysteries led me to start reading horror when I was just a tyke. This is kind of like that... a safe way to start exploring that thrill you get from fear.

Again ... vampires in daylight. What the fuck?

I don't mind when people put their own spin on the vampire mythos. I just read Barbeau's Vampyres of Hollywood, and they could walk in daylight, which didn't bother me at all. It all boils down to how well done something is, not whether or not they follow the regular conventions. And again I have to say it's not really fair to pick on Twilight for not being a typical vamp flick; it is being made for a VERY specific audience, not hardcore horror fans.

I have this creeping suspicion that this movie is not intended for anyone who isn't a 14 year old girl.
