What do you think about Mainstream Hollywood, Film, Art, and “vampires” as a subject?

Do you enjoy the fictitious world or are you insulted by the picture Hollywood paints of vampirism? What about “coming out of the coffin”, as being a topic for many youtuber’s videos?

In contrast to these two recent styles of art, do you enjoy works which are more on the informational side, such as books about folklore, or that which has been published by this generation of vampires?

I think, at a glance, the Vampire-themed Art of the 21st century is very unique, and the medias are vast.

Everything from the popular modern recordings of haunted events, which can be found in multiple areas of the web, to the brief time in which certain vampires were “coming out of the coffin” to be a part of the general public’s eye, bring some diversity to “tasteful entertainment”. It seems, within the audience, vampires, artists, and even “the mundane” are evident.

Artistic and informational videos, strange video diaries, combined with modern renovations of haunted cities and gothic/elegant, or even upscale takes on recycled art, has become a vast gallery with an endless amount of masterpieces. I think it’s a very impressive collection so far.

The strive towards success has had some real benefit for those who have produced it, from my understanding.

Are you watching "Midnight Texas"? the vampires portrait are the typical Vampires. No outside during the day. Super strong. and for sure, thirst for blood. Typical entertainment for the masses. Remember, Vampirism is a way of living, just like everything else. Books are in the same classification as movies. and nope, I am not offended because someone wants to make some millions.

I personally enjoy all vampire content whether it be a documentary about staking innocent corpses in graves or television series like the new spin off to the vampire diaries Legacies. I do not believe in the content of every source of course but this does not make them less fun to watch.

I’ve not seen Midnight Texas, interesting though. I made the forum post because I personally would love to get some feedback about how people feel in regards to film and literature whose main subject is vampires/vampirism... it’s something of a task to check off from my list of research. And my first response in the thread/topic would be my answer to the question. Thank you for your answers I’ll be checking the forum, from time to time, to see what others have to say.

In one of my journal posts, I had briefly talked about how Vampirism is a phenomenon in today's world. Hollywood does nothing but romanticise these supposedly creatures of the night, turning the characters into role-models for the youth. This is not how it ought to have been. Anything that is being churned out by Hollywood must be taken with a pinch of salt. There are plenty of Indie artistes who make lots of B-movies out there, and I don't think these movies have anything to do with "Hollywood". I am not insulted by it all, as discernment is crucial, especially when it comes to the media.

YouTubers who have "come out of the coffin"... well, they can have their 5 seconds of fame! I believe highly in social responsibility. So, just be careful. The internet is most definitely a dangerous place.

I never liked folklores... not even the vampire ones. Al these diseases and how they are brought to life by corpses... nah, it's too scientific. I am a dark romanticist. So yes, I don't work well with science or empirical research.

Books are awesome. There aren't many books out there that provide in-depth insight and help... basically, an instruction manual. There are some vampiric leaders I look up to and absolutely adore, but that's about it. I have utterly stopped reading vampire teen fiction. I am too old for that, really... I'm way past my prime.

What Hollywood has done is to sensationalise vampires. I have not watched a single episode of Vampire Diaries, or Tru Blood. None of that... Sad, but, they just don't appeal to me. I prefer the old-school kind of tormented vampires, who are very philosophical. A philosophical vampire... if you will. Nothing too gory or over the top or too posh.

So yeah. There are too many sub-elements in the original post... got me thinking, nonetheless. :)

I’d have to say mine is the classic one which is Nosferatu. It’s just captivating to watch for me, how everything was back then. I mean who can argue with a classic movie like this one. I feel that this movie is probably the most entertaining film to watch. as far as vampires are concerned with the Hollywood image that is.
