In time we will see that the vampire movies and books are just flavour of the month.
They make money, so the entertainment industry cranks them out.
When they stop making money....................................next!
In three years it will be something else.
You're missing the point.
I'm not 'selling' anything - I don't need to. What I mentioned is going on, is going on. That's a fact, and anyone willing to spend a few minutes researching it for themselves will very quickly find this out.
There is a much bigger picture than just money.

Yes they are, and so is religion, and they have all been used to control the masses since time immemorial. People are naturally inclined to let their imaginations run away with them, and the elites know how to harness this propensity for their own selfish motives.
What the elites want, above all else, is power. Money is only one tool of wielding power. Moulding the consciousness of the mass population yields massive power, and of course this is in addition to the subjugation of the population via a corrupt banking system which drives the population, individually and nationally, into servitude through debt.
These elites worship a certain belief system, and they desire the symbology of their belief system to be engrained in the consciousness of the mass population, so that they can mould the behaviour of the populace more easily.
Just think about that the next time you're considering going to the cinema (or sitting down in front of the TV) to watch a film about vampires, war, violence, etc. I'm not saying don't watch films, I'm just saying try to be conscious of what is really going on; what the hidden motives might be to spend hundreds of millions of dollars on ways to grip your attention for 2 hours at a time, in a highly-suggestible state of mind. Some films genuinely are for casual entertainment, but many have very, very sinister motives underlying their production. If you doubt the ability of films to mould mass consciousness, then ask yourself why there have been so many films about topics which affect political decisions in the real world (it's very useful to certain people to influence public opinion about the 'legitimacy' of waging war against certain groups or countries, or the supposed 'truth' of what the media has told them to be so about certain shocking 'events', for example). Other films strive to mould public consciousness about wealthy/powerful figures alive today, that essentially promote their positions of power and their acceptance in the public eye. Remember, the same wealthy, powerful, elites also own the television and print media, too, and there is a vast fortune to be made by controlling, and de-stabilising, nations (look what's currently happening in southern Europe, for example). Banking and war are extremely profitable industries.
I'm not religious, and I'm not moralising here - I'm just saying open your eyes to what is going on right underneath your nose. You can start by using the search term I mentioned in the previous post, and go from there. Amongst all the crackpot theories, you will find some information which is quite indisputable. I could easily provide more specific search terms, but I decline to post them here.
I'm going to draw a line under this side-discussion now, but for anyone who reads the preceding couple of posts, just do a little research of your own before jumping to conclusions one way or the other.
Now, can we hear some more bad date stories?
