“Twilight-Just Shoot Me”May 4th, 2009 | By Krystal | Category: Featured Articles, Movie News
It seems that director David Slade might be regretting a Twitter entry (now deleted) he made slamming Twilight. Slash Film also has an audio clip of the director’s Twilight tirade here. Not a great way to introduce yourself to Twilighters, huh? Or do you think this was just a misunderstanding?
“…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.”
