The roles play by Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise from Interview with a Vampire left us wanting more...more vampire activity, that is. Years have passed and our desire for the sensual, dark side still remains. Then along comes Edward Cullen, whose character is based on the Twilight series, to steal our hearts. Based on the four-book complete set, Twilight has evolved the vampire phenomena to a whole new carnal, yet celibate, level.
Merchandise based on the Twilight movie is appearing on posters, tee shirts and decals. Skins for the Nintendo DS and Sony PSP featuring the movie’s characters are also popular. Novels about vampires are also being fiercely consumed by devout followers including the original Anne Rice novel: The Vampire Lestat. And the animated Japanese Vampire Knight series offers an array of fan classics such as comic books, pillows, and jewelry.
Can’t wait for Twilight to be released on DVD? Watch Interview with a Vampire. If a more humorous and lighter side to the vampire appeals to you, how about a boxed set of the television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer?
