But just think of all the tweenie twilight fans who are gonna pee their pants when this movie scares the living daylights out of them wink
Now that's a thought that amuses big_smile

Re: Near Dark Bluray Art is Twilight'ish

^They may however be off-put by the "Scruffy" looking not "Sparkley"  vampires on the cover!:P

Re: Near Dark Bluray Art is Twilight'ish

You really expect them to look "that"closely? Surely they'll just see the surface impression and jump at it like catgirls at a convention?
Plus you fail to take into account the well meaning but uninformed parents of said tweenlighters wink

Re: Near Dark Bluray Art is Twilight'ish

^Excelent point Macho.  Their attention will be easily swayed by the imense teen heart-throb in the upper right corner.:D

Re: Near Dark Bluray Art is Twilight'ish

I see lots of half watched tear-stained copies turning up on ebay very quickly wink lol:lol:

Re: Near Dark Bluray Art is Twilight'ish

Ah, to see the dismayed look upon the face of the Twi-hard when they realize their error.....:lol:

Re: Near Dark Bluray Art is Twilight'ish

And to hear the recriminations aimed at the parents "Why do you hate me mummy and daddy? why???"

The TV spots will be classic wink

"Near Dark is sponsored by Kleenex Tissues, Strong enough for men, soft enough for tweenlighters"

Re: Near Dark Bluray Art is Twilight'ish

The kids sure will be disappointed when Bill Paxton doesn't sparkle.

Re: Near Dark Bluray Art is Twilight'ish

But there is a cool side to this , traumatised twiglet fans can only be a good thing  lol

Re: Near Dark Bluray Art is Twilight'ish

^and dead one's even better! lol

Re: Near Dark Bluray Art is Twilight'ish

Never wish death  ( great believer in what goes around comes around ) smile

Re: Near Dark Bluray Art is Twilight'ish

^True, true.  It's Baaaaad ju ju!

Re: Near Dark Bluray Art is Twilight'ish

Ugh can everything stop being compared to twilight or called Twilightish. Sickening

Re: Near Dark Bluray Art is Twilight'ish

Oh come on dude just look at the side by side cover art.
That's a deliberate attempt to cash in on the Twilight fanbase.

Re: Near Dark Bluray Art is Twilight'ish

Yeah but if they are dumb enough to buy something because it has a similar cover then fuck em cause they deserve to be tricked. Why not repackage movies that would appeal to Twilight fans, like The Covenant or Blood &Chocolate, instead of dragging good movies through the mud

Re: Near Dark Bluray Art is Twilight'ish

I'm puking. How much photoshop did it take to make Paxton look that gay?

Re: Near Dark Bluray Art is Twilight'ish

Never thought they would sink that low to sell copies of that movie.  In a way, it's smart.  People who like Twilight but never heard of Near Dark may look into it now.  But the movies are so different, I don't think they would like it.

Re: Near Dark Bluray Art is Twilight'ish

For farks sake is nothin sacred.The original had Bill Paxton looking like he just came outta a microwave with daylight bullet holes in him-great cover.Pple will see this and think not another Twilight rip off
