David Slade Climbs out of the Twilight Saga Hole of Shame

Ok. wow. David Slade, Eclipse director, slashing Twilight. But I'll give him this. He's directing Eclipse, which is much darker than the original, fluffier Twilight book. I was quite excited to hear that this slasher director will head Eclipse, because it needs to get tangled and drippy.

Regardless, here's the audio and transcript of Slade talking to the BDK Movie Show in Washington D.C. about which movie to go see when nothing good is playing:

…and so yesterday we were trying to find a movie to see and we’d seen all the good ones, you know, and there was nothing really coming out this weekend that we really fancied at all and having directed a vampire film and really gone for something completely different to the kind of romantic, you know, repressed hormone teen vampire movie we really weren’t interested in seeing Twilight but a lot of people said lets go so I wrote -

Twilight drunk? No, not even drunk. Twilight on acid? No, not even on acid? Twilight at gun point? Just shoot me.”

[That’s like] a poem in a way [...] at this point excites me even though people think I’m a really violent and unpleasant person I actually do have this romantic violent side to me. Maybe I should have seen Twilight.
