Twilight spoof coming to theaters & more Twi-News

* There have been lots of Twilight spoofs out there, but for the first time one is making its way to the big screen. Fandango reports:

A little over a month after The Twilight Saga: Eclipse hits theaters, the folks behind movies like Disaster Movie, Epic Movie, Date Movie and Meet the Spartans are planning to unveil their latest travesty: Untitled Vampire Spoof Movie. And no, that’s not the official title (for those who thought the whole “Untitled” thing was part of the spoof), though we expect the title they do choose will specifically target the Twilight franchise since they know how lucrative anything related to it can be.

August 18th is the day we’ll all be able to run to the theater and purchase a ticket (so mark it on your calendar now … or not), though one imagines you Twi-hards out there will skip this one, unless you want to watch some Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson look-a-likes do absurd, unfunny things in the name of “comedy.” Of course Twilight won’t be the only film spoofed (we assume), as the vampire genre has been pretty hot as of late. We may see some True Blood in there, as well as a little Blade – and maybe even a nod to the Lost Boys franchise, which returned with a cruddy sequel two years ago. (In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw a cameo from Corey Feldman in this thing.)

  1. I dont know if its just me.,but honestly i hate things like this -the spoof thing- i don’t know why, but that’s what i feel ever since., i hate it when people like make fun of my favorites. I think like they’re being disrepectful.,
    that’s just my opinion though.

    • While not every spoof is funny, I think it’s healthy to have a sense of humor about things you love.

      I think it’s good to be able to laugh at both yourself & the things you like … especially since most spoofs/parodies are not meant to be mean.

      If someone is making a spoof, it’s a just a tribute to the popularity of the original material.

    • Spoofs CAN be funny, but SOME are just a pain. πŸ˜›

  2. Oh I’d see it if there was a Corey Feldman cameo! Too bad no Corey Haim cameo. 😦

  3. Hey, Twi-Hards have a sense of humor! I’d totally go see a spoof. There are things about the actual movies that I make fun of myself, but it doesn’t mean I’m not still a fan. (Although I do prefer the books, which are way funnier than the movies, IMO.)

    • Yeah, some things are just funny. For example, in New Moon, it was like the whole movie was filmed by a teen, with the girly drama slow-mo of Bella running towards Edward in Italy. I mean, come on, she even did a hair flick in slo-mo. It was dramatic, in a good way, but still funny. πŸ™‚

      • The Hillywood show spoofs are AMAZING tho. Those girls put so much work into their videos…. thoroughly impressive.

        Also, the Glee moment on Tuesday was hilarious. And definitely what a spoof should be. A short, funny take on what everyone is really thinking, but no one wants to say out loud. (I’m all for being a die-hard fan, but sometimes, obsession overtakes rational thinking.)
