NEAR DARK DVD Re-Issue Panders to TWILIGHT Crowd.

Posted by Peter Hall - June 30th 2009 @ 7:00 am

I present to you for quick assessment two items.

Immediately below is Exhibit A, a side-by-side of the TWILIGHT DVD cover and that of the new re-issue disc for the 22 year old NEAR DARK due out from Lions Gate on July 7th.  Below that is Exhibit B, a roughly 16 month view of the publicly traded stock price of Lions Gate Films (LGF).

Task: Note correlations between Exhibit A and Exhibit B.

    I PRAY pre-teen girls rent NEAR DARK for a sleepover thinking it is TWILIGHT-esque. I can only imagine how their “special parts” will tingle when Lance Henrickson slashes the waitress’ throat with his boot spur.

    That being said, how do people who make decisions like this keep their jobs?

    That is so very, VERY wrong!

    Yes a real site and not just busting on this one. I feel the same about this. Fuck Twilight. I was recently just bitching about how Tweenlight er Twilight and Vampire Diaries has nearly killed my trust in anything Vamp related in films and tv.
    Briand and Gorefirl I noded my head more than once when I read your thoughts on this.

    Thanks for the blog. It’s great and I loved all 3 of them!!! The movie isn’t supposed to have blood thirsty human hungry vampires. It’s a love story. I really like it……..
