Are You Tired of Vampire Entertainment?

You'd probably have to have taken up residence beneath a rock to miss the fact that the entertainment world has been experiencing a bit of a vampire craze. There's Twilight, of course, the HBO series True Blood, and the upcoming CW show Vampire Diaries to name just a handful.

This week I saw the trailer for Cirque Du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant — and groaned. For one thing, I'd envisioned something darker and cooler than the movie seems to be. For another thing, I was way more interested in this project when it was just called Cirque Du Freak. Now it's The Vampire's Assistant.

Are you approaching your breaking point on vampire stuff? Or maybe you've surpassed it? Or can you just not get enough of the vampires?

SO happy to see that the majority of voters are sick of the trend. I would be okay with it if all the current vampire movies/shows weren't terrible.

i loved Anne Rice and the movies based on her books. why don't they continue those stories? they were awesome, creepy, sexy, etc all at the same time. edward cullen does not compare to Anne's vamps....

Akasha I agree! I am reading book 4 and book 3 was pretty darn good, especially the ending. Eric is by far my favorite character.

I love True Blood. Mostly for Eric (the character) but Alexander Skarsgard is pretty smokin' hot too. I read all the books, and I'm very much enjoying the series. Although I have to say that if they hold to the current formula (1 book = 1 season), I am very much looking forward to seasons 3 and 4. If you haven't read the books you'll just have to trust me on this.

Just hearing my friends talk about Twilight back when it was just a book made me cringe. They're obsessed with a fictional character. I never read it and I just don't get it. Vampires are not and have never been my thing.

See, now I LOVE the Cirque du Freak series (I'm a teacher)--but this trailer seems to change the plot A LOT. I really hope I'm not disappointed by this movie, though I feel like I might be.

I loved Buffy and Angel when they were on, although I never watched the later seasons. Not into Twilight at all, tried True Blook but it's not that good either.

YES- And it's not even that I don't like vampires, it's that the market's flooded with so much stuff that isn't even good just because vamps are the new "in" thing. It happens when any genre gets too popular.

i've been expecting that i'll like vampire diaries cos i really like nina dobrev, but now that the commercials are starting to air it seems they're trying really hard to make it look EXACTLY like twilight... hopefully it's just to get attention and not an indication of how the series will really be. i like vampire entertainment as long as it offers something a little bit original... twilight was cute but not good enough to sit through a knock-off :)

I liked the trailer for Cirque Du Freak, its look fun and eccentric. That said, True Blood is enough for me. Twilight was just eh, and not looking forward to the CW show but I may watch.

No. I am tired of "Vampire NOT Entertainment". There is a long time I don't see anything good. :zzz: Cirque Du Freak is a good name but The Vampire's Assistant? No!

Cirque du Freak is an amazing series for kids, I cannot wait to see it.

I grew up reading Anne Rice and loved her books! Not a Twilight Fan at all. Love True Blood (mostly for Eric). I've always liked vampire stuff - anybody remember when Fox did a show in the mid-90's for a season (I think it was called "The Brethren"). But it does seem overkill right now. I still prefer Anne Rice - the characters are way more complex and compelling.

It's definitely getting old. But if I was in the entertainment business and was looking for a cash cow, I'd probably get involved in vampire-related entertainment as well. It's freaking GOLD right now. I just wish it was actually GOOD. P.S. Buffy forever

i keep saying this: just cuz it worked ONE TIME with twilight, why kill the trend by literally saturating entertainment with it? it makes NO SENSE

No, not yet. I fall in love with True Blood more and more every episode and I cannot wait for New Moon and Eclipse to come out. I do think that we have reached our quota for Vampire entertainment for a few years though so potential new writers, directors and whoever else needs to steer clear of Vampires because it will only look like they are jumping on the bandwagon.
