Head over to Twilight Parents Examiner and join in on the Thirsty Thursday discussion- here's a preview:
The “Editing-Room” even chose the popular Twilight movie to spoof, and the content is definitely NOT appropriate for young readers. In this tame excerpt, the author, Rod Hilton, mocks both Stephenie Meyer’s Mormon religion and Bella’s place as a “hollow” teen figure:
INT. GLASS MANSION
KRISTEN meets ROBERT’S VAMPIRE FAMILY.
Welcome to our ridiculously expensive home. I’m the father figure of this family because I’m the one who turned them all into vampires. There’s something disturbing about the idea that I’ve only turned teenagers into vampires, but let’s ignore that.
Wow, you guys are so close. What keeps this family together so well?
Funny you should ask. Let me tell you about Count Joseph Von Smith. One day a vampire named Moronula appeared to him and told him to find these golden stakes buried in a coffin…
Knock it off, dad. So, Kristen, there must be something really special about you for Robert to take such a liking to you and risk the lives of his entire family. Tell us about yourself.
Me? Oh, no. I’m just a hollow placeholder for all of the teenage girls in the audience to project their personalities onto. I have none of my own whatsoever.
Though the script in its entirety is quite amusing for the adult sense of humor, the unfortunate fact is that anything with the name Twilight attached is an automatic draw for kids as well. A group of kids recently used Hilton’s script to perform their own play, complete with expletives:
