Why Tween Trends Are Stupid

Were it not for a nationwide army of girls drawn to the idiotic soap operas of "The Vampire Diaries", "True Blood" (Anna Paquin's nudity excluded) and, of course, Twilight, then really awesome vampire movies like Let the Right One In wouldn't get shafted. Or director Park Chan-Wook's Thirst, sure to be seen as yet another blip on the zeitgeist radar by the rest of the world, even though it was in development before I'd ever heard of Stephenie Meyer.

This version of the trailer isn't the greatest, but it is the best one on YouTube at the moment.

Did I mention that Park Chan-Wook is the director of Oldboy and the underrated J.S.A.: Joint Security Area? I know the trailer makes mention of the former, but I figured I'd remind you again all the same. If you haven't seen either, go rent 'em. At the very least, they're all visually stunning, something that's equally evident in the above trailer.

Thirst opens in limited release on July 31st, 2009.
