Modern day vampire themed books, television serials and movies are all the rage and there is no stopping the trend. I was completely disinterested in the phenomenon until I saw teenage actress Kristen Stewart play a superb role in a recent movie called “Adventureland”. Her talent piqued my interest so I NetFlixed the much acclaimed vampire movie “Twilight” and saw it over Thanksgiving weekend. Good grief! I too have been completely sucked in by the vampire movie trend.

I was so, so unexpectedly mesmerized with the story line and chemistry between the main actors in Twilight that I dragged poor Greg to see “New Moon”, which is playing in theaters right now. I was equally captivated by the sequel and I’m already champing at the bit to see the third movie in the series.

Vampire themed movies, books, and TV shows are one thing, but now you can even shop the “New Moon Fashion Line” in the junior section at Nordstrom. Apart from movie-specific slogans and illustrations on T’s and hoodies, this fashion range looks like everything else at young adult retail clothing stores like Abercrombie & Fitch, Hollister and American Eagle. I’m not a young adult so I’m not drawn to the fashion line or to the clothing worn on the movies. But I have been wondering whether it’s been appealing to the target audience. Are these clothing lines resonating with your teenagers?

Also, are the Twilight movies and their fashion a big thing where you live? Have you been captivated by the movies (or books) like I have?
