Re: Entertainment Weekly's Top 20 Vampires of all time

Before I opened the thread, I figured this was EW taking the opportunity to pimp Twilight.

No Blacula? No sale!

This list sucks blood.

No mention of everyone's favorite childhood count?

And how about the vampire from THE NIGHT STALKER.

Good god, I hadn't noticed Schrek wasn't on the list before. That's blasphemy right there! (Although I still argue Lugosi was more influential on the general vampire archetype as we know it, "I vant to drink your blood" and all that lot; but "Nosferatu" stlll remains one hell of a visual.)

Jamie Farr?



I'm surprised EW ranked the Twilight kid so low considering how much they suck up to that franchise.

Re: Entertainment Weekly's Top 20 Vampires of all time

I'm glad I'm not the only one who has noticed this link between Twilight and EW. I actually didn't renew my subscription for that very reason (go figure, my last issue had Twilight on the cover). I did a big cleaning last week and was going through back issues, when I came across a July 2008 issue with Twilight on the cover. I decided to see how many other covers and mentions is has received since July 2008.
Full Cover - 4
Small Pics on Cover - 4
Mentions in Text Only - 6

That's 14 fucking references to Twilight on their covers in a one year span. This is over 1 fucking movie that has been out less than a year! I can't imagine how many times it's been mentioned inside the magazine. For instance, in this issue they have a Muse single on their Must List. Muse is a great band and deserves to be on that list, but check out their notes under the pick "Twilight author Stephanie Meyer endorsed these epic Brits, and her fans will love their new single: The song evokes Edward spending a dark, stormy night playing Queen covers on the living room piano."
What the fuck does Twilght have to do with Muse?!!

End rant.

p.s. I want to marry Twilight (translation: Twilight makes me want to drown kittens)

Not to mention it's a terrible movie with a terrible script and terrible acting. Did I mention it was terrible.

I too am sick at all this twilight shit i see everywhere. But one has to remember that it isnt just one movie. It is also the four best selling books, and the sequel coming out in november, and the sequel to that coming out next year.

The same shit happened with the Harry Potter series when it was at this stage of production.

Well... see that's just about the worst list of its kind ever assembled.

So it sucks and all.

Including, but not limited to, the whole Schrek thing amongst others.

I did not renew this year after being a subscriber since year one.
To me EW has turned into what you posted.
On one of their lists about all-time t.v. icons they had John Stewert on the list but not Bill O'Reilly. Even though Bill beats him in the ratings.

it's just seriously mind blowing- the top 3 people I think of when I think of Dracula are Lugosi, Schreck, and Lee.

well to make some of you happy, they also did a 'sexiest vampires' list and Eric from True Blood did beat out Edward (and Eric was no 1). The magazine also has interviews with the 2 authors of those books

My guess is they see newsstand spikes when they feature Twilight on the cover

Yes.

And I agree with those who say that no Schreck = no sale. Or, more accurately, big sale for EW since the kiddies haven't heard of him but squee over Twilight.

Salma Hayek should be on there. What a load of BS most of that list is.

Agreed, it's no different than any gossip rag and caters to 15-year-old girls and brain dead movie fans who think Transformers is the pinnacle of entertainment. I get sent it for free and it goes right in the trash along with all the Bed Bath & Beyond coupons.
