Angst-y Vampires (in Off-topic)

So the other day I was lamenting the seeming inundation of our world with tales of angst riddled teenage vampires at which point my brother offered the following gem:

"The angst is due to Vitamin D deficiency... vampires don't get enough sun and thus don't produce enough vitamin D"

Like, wow, so Vampires suffer from an extreme form of Seasonal Affective Disorder and being immortal rules out the suicide solution.

No wonder they are cranky....

I wonder if supplements are enough to prevent all future twilight installments?

We can only hope this knowledge spreads through the inter-tubes and reaches those who it can help the most.

Well if you're into Twilight (if you're a teenage girl, I mean), then you believe vampires LOVE the sun because it makes them sparkly and shiny. So, that rules your theory out..

have we really reached the age in which we dismiss theories because the stupid people (teenage girls in this case) don't believe it?

"If well adults and adolescents regularly avoid sunlight exposure, research indicates a necessity to supplement with at least 5,000 units (IU) of vitamin D daily. To obtain this amount from milk one would need to consume 50 glasses. With a multivitamin more than 10 tablets would be necessary. Neither is advisable."

"Neither is advisable."

Nor is seeing this movie, standing near anyone who has had contact with this movie, or speaking aloud about said movie =D

I think the last vampire movie I saw was Lost Boys

a great movie, kevlar.

We can't classify Twilight as a vampire movie, regardless of how its author wants to label their supernatural beings, because there are NO VAMPIRES INVOLVED.

John Carpenter's Vampires was not a horrible movie, just not that great...

There's a Swedish film, Let the Right One In which was adapted from a novel. It's about a child aged vampire who is friends with the boy next door. Creepy, yet not overdone. Very original. It's in Swedish, but Amazon has a subtitled version.
