Now I don't know crap all about Twilight and it's various incarnations and adaptations. But I do know that the next flick is apparently going to feature Peter "Freakin' Bauhaus" Murphy. In his first film role since The Hunger, Murphy is playing a vampire called "The Cold One." (I think – but in the franchise "cold one" is also a werewolf slur for vampires in general – I think. Who can keep up? Googling this stuff is like throwing yourself into maze where all the direction signs are in foreign language.)
Does this lend the franchise anymore cred in the horror blog-twitter pro-am? After all, there's always the possibility that some Twi-hater could ask: "Murphy's cool with it. And, honestly, am I more horror than Peter Murphy?" The answer, of course, would be no. You're just some freakishly untalented subliterate who rode the coattails of more established bloggers to a middling, but still utterly undeserved level of success. Of course you're not more horror than Murphy. Don't be an ass.
Here's a Bauhaus song to make us all feel better. Here's Peter Murphy, Trent Reznor, and TV on the Radio all doing "Bela Lugosi's Dead."
