Brace yourselves, horror fans...

If you're looking for a genuinely creepy take on the vampire genre (versus, say, a mopey, dopey, heavy-on-the-sixpack-abs one), check out the trailer for Let Me In, the upcoming film remake of the 2008 Swedish movie Let The Right One In, which was based on a 2004 novel by horror writer John Ajvide Lindqvist. I've never had the stomach to read the book (there's more horror in it than just the vampire stuff, apparently), but I hear it's very good.

That looks rather intriguing... at least a nice change from sparkling, obsessive, mopey, dopey (I love your description) teens. Vampires are blood-sucking zombies, for goodness sake. Let the creepy back in!

I don't mind a little so-called "seductive appeal" with my vampire action, but I want said appeal to actually, y'know, be appealing. I recently read Meg Cabot's Insatiable, and there's a particularly fun sequence where the heroine is considering running away with the hot vampire prince who's been courting her... until she realizes that would mean giving up her job, her apartment, and her dog, and she totally turns him down. I fully approved. Why would anyone want to spend eternity staring at their navels?
