IT’S ON! Between Anne Rice’s Vampires And The “Twilight” Vampires

Anne Rice’s “The Vampire Chronicles” novels are probably responsible, at least partially, for the whole “Twilight” phenomenon. Does that mean that Anne is down with “Twilight”? Absolutely NOT.

In fact, It’s on, after Anne laid the verbal smackdown on “Twilight” on her Facebook page.

She said,  “Lestat and Louie feel sorry for vampires that sparkle in the sun.”

“They would never hurt immortals who choose to spend eternity going to high school over and over again in a small town anymore than they would hurt the physically disabled or the mentally challenged.”

“My vampires possess gravitas.  They can afford to be merciful.”

Not surprisingly, this caused a HUGE reaction.  Last we checked, her post had almost 10,000 “Likes”, and had elicited almost 2,200 comments.

Check out this chaos for yourself here.

And by the way, there are those of us who think BOTH sides are wrong.  The vampires of both Anne Rice and Stephenie Meyer are ALL WUSSES.

I’ll take “Nosferatu”, “Salem’s Lot”, Christopher Lee’s Dracula or “John Carpenter’s Vampires” over ALL of these sharp-toothed style queens ANY DAY.  Blacula, too?  RIGHT ON.
