Understanding the Twilight Movies: Dracula Has a New Messenger

Stephenie Meyer is the new Anne Rice! It's true, Count Dracula has been disappointed with Rice lately for not creating enough excitement for the terror mogul's burgeoning enterprise. Rice seems to have outgrown her usefulness. Of course, Meyer is only too happy to take her place. In a YouTube video, the author recounts her inspiration for Twilight: "I had a dream, and it was this cool, crazy dream about a vampire and a human girl."

Indeed, the novel was Meyer's first foray at literary writing and book publishing. Although she was an English major in college, she never planned to become a writer. See for yourself by watching the interview at YouTube. She had help!

The worldwide Dracula conspiracy aims to keep the vampire story alive by always appealing to the most influential segments of the population. Here's the master plan:

*Put the target population under some form of trance or hypnosis

*Start the mental domination by appealing to their vanity or self-interests at the time

*Be always creative in your approaches

*Be subtle and only drop hints so you can totally subdue their collective subconscious

*Always employ unsuspecting writers and movie producers to carry on the message

*Harness the proven power of music to make the message more palatable and therefore, irresistible

*Always entice the unsuspecting target population to spend their hard-earned cash in the Dracula enterprise--when they are broke, they are easier to subdue

In Twilight, the mission is clear. Rice's failure is Meyer's gain. One clear proof of the conspiracy is how it always begins with an innocent kiss.

Definitely, Twilight as the current vehicle for Dracula's modern day resurgence is a stroke of genius. Truly, the master knows which segment of the world population to exploit, after all, Girl Power has been ruling the box office lately. This explains why Twilight is told from a girl's perspective! Author Meyer is adamant about this: "The way it's meant to be discovered is the same way that Bella discovers it. And I do not want to take that experience away from anybody!"

So successful is the Twilight franchise that its sequels are already a hit before they even come out in theaters.

Just check how many hits the New Moon movie trailer has had so far; and Breaking Dawn?

It has happened before, it is happening again. The Paramore band's hypnotic rendition of Decode, Twilight's theme song says it all. Open your eyes, and examine the music video.
