Twilight Spoof Movie: How To Make Lame Vampire Movies Even More Lame

A Twilight spoof movie is in the works for August.

A little over a month after The Twilight Saga: Eclipse hits theaters, the folks behind movies like Disaster Movie, Epic Movie, Date Movie and Meet the Spartans are planning to unveil their latest travesty: Untitled Vampire Spoof Movie. And no, that's not the official title (for those who thought the whole "Untitled" thing was part of the spoof), though we expect the title they do choose will specifically target the Twilight franchise since they know how lucrative anything related to it can be. August 18th is the day we'll all be able to run to the theater and purchase a ticket (so mark it on your calendar now … or not), though one imagines you Twi-hards out there will skip this one, unless you want to watch some Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson look-a-likes do absurd, unfunny things in
the name of "comedy." Of course Twilight won't be the only film spoofed (we assume), as the vampire genre has been pretty hot as of late. We may see some True Blood in there, as well as a little Blade – and maybe even a nod to the Lost Boys franchise, which returned with a cruddy sequel two years ago. (In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if we saw a cameo from Corey Feldman in this thing.)

Is it still too soon to spoof the Twilight movies, or do you think the hype has reached a level that demands it be spoofed? Will you go see Untitled Vampire Spoof Movie, or will you save it for a time when you're scrolling through the channel guide late at night and there's nothing else on?

The real question is, will Edward be gay? For Jacob? Will Bella finally get punched in the face? If so, then chances are I might actually see this movie.

Not at the theater or anything. I need to have some standards. But on Netflix. Eventually. Like in a year or two. When Garfield 3: Feline Groovy is on "very long wait", and there just isn't anything else. Or when I lose my sense of humor in a horribly disfiguring curling iron accident.

I really can't stand the team behind those spoof movies. Gross out humor just isn't my thing. Though I do love the idea of making fun of Twilight. You know that's one of my favorite pastimes.

Well-made spoofs are always fun, and the vampire thing is begging for a good spoof.

Unfortunately, the Scary/Date/Epic movie people are unfunny, stupid, and make these movies for 12-year-old boys.

I'm waiting for the next generation's Mel Brooks.

You both expressed what I was trying to say, in a much more coherent way. I am in favor of making fun of Twilight, but the recent spoof movies are terrible and surely Twilight haters deserve something more along the lines of Mel Brooks or Airplane. Right?

And don't call me Shirley.
