    […] Vampires have had many reincarnations since their birth into modern popular fiction with John Polidori’s “The Vampyre: A Tale” two centuries ago. Until relatively recently, it seemed that our collective fascination with the enigmatic immortals would endure as long as they themselves could (that is, forever). But since the final “Twilight” film “Breaking Dawn: Part 2” was released in 2012, interest has largely dwindled. Tim Burton’s dire 2012 offering “Dark Shadows” — featuring (shocker) Johnny Depp as the chalk white, kohl-rimmed lead — sucked the life out of its victims both on and off-screen. 2014’s “Dracula Untold” bombed commercially despite the livelier talents of Luke Evans and Sarah Gadon. HBO killed off the series “True Blood” in 2014, and the CW’s “The Vampire Diaries” finished in 2017 after eight seasons with a steadily diminishing viewership. […]

And there’s no indication that this newest “Twilight” providing — starring Edward Cullen, the repressed, regressive male love curiosity of the unique sequence — will revitalize the style now, so is not it about time vampires left the chat? Vampires have had many reincarnations since their beginning into fashionable widespread fiction with John Polidori’s “The Vampyre: A Tale” two centuries in the past. Till comparatively lately, it appeared that our collective fascination with the enigmatic immortals would endure so long as they themselves might (that’s, ceaselessly). However because the closing “Twilight” movie “Breaking Daybreak: Half 2” was launched in 2012, curiosity has largely dwindled. Tim Burton’s dire 2012 providing “Darkish Shadows” — that includes (shocker) Johnny Depp because the chalk white, kohl-rimmed lead — sucked the life out of its victims each on and off-screen. 2014’s “Dracula Untold” bombed commercially regardless of the livelier abilities of Luke Evans and Sarah Gadon. HBO killed off the sequence “True Blood” in 2014, and the CW’s “The Vampire Diaries” completed in 2017 after eight seasons with a steadily diminishing viewership. […]
