True Blood and Twilight Similarities

True Blood and Twilight: 5 Laws of Attraction

Vampire tales change the rules to suit the story's time and place, but little changes when it comes to the human-vampire attraction. It's intoxicating, addictive, and eternally hot.


Twilight may be a safer, chaster look at vampires, but obsession is obsession. See the five laws of attraction that govern both tales below.

  • So innocent: Sookie may be the cheerful blonde, but Bella's snow-white skin and wide eyes say the same thing — virgin.
  • A clouded mind reader: In True Blood, it's Sookie, and in Twilight, it's Edward, but when it comes to the objects of their affections their mind-reading gifts are gladly set to off.
  • Unglamorous: Unlike all other humans, both Sookie and Bella are above the influence of vampires. Vampire Bill is drawn to Sookie because she cannot be glamoured, while Edward is attracted to Bella for being unafraid of him and the Cullen brood.
  • Jealous competition: Both Sookie and Bella have bad-boy vampires undying to drink to their blood. In True Blood, it's Eric, and in Twilight, it's James. Though we may root for Eric, both are obsessed with the other vampire's girl.
  • Self-loathing vampires: Bill and Edward are embarrassed by what they are, and view Sookie and Bella's acceptance to be acts of love.

I love when people pretend or fight over which is better. They're both pretty campy, but that doesn't mean they aren't enjoyable.

Let's not get crazy, True Blood can be pretty bad at times. It's just more grown up.
