The New Moon werewolves?

I know Twilight in no way counts as a horror flick, but I just had to... This pic surfaced recently, depicting the werewolf clan from the upcoming Twilight sequel, New Moon. As if the vampires in Twilight weren't lame enough, this is what's supposed to strike fear into the hearts of 11 year-old girls everywhere? Seriously, they look like Menudo, only more gay. I guess it caters to the Twilight demographic though, which is apparently gay Menudo fans. Or teenage girls. *and before anybody asks, no, I have no issue with gay people, not one bit; I just can't bring myself to accept that werewolves actually look like Venezuelan cabana boys.


  1. I agree. This is worse than showcasing Ryan Reynolds' 12-pack as George Lutz in Amityville...

  2. It's OK...I'm the gay half of the Tower Farm team, and I totally agree with you. It actually looks very David DeCoteau circa "The Brotherhood" Part 1.

  3. As a member of 'teh gays', I do not endorse this - it's a pathetic marketing ploy aimed at twinky queens and squealing girls.

  4. That's what I mean... let the film stand on it's own merits.

    It's like when J.K. Rowling announced that Dumbledore was gay... why would you do that? His romantic/sexual orientation had nothing to do with the story whatsoever, so I have to believe that it was for publicity's sake.

    Then again, eye candy makes the movie world go round in many cases, but the whole thing just struck me as feeling really out of place.

  5. As the first female commenter, I'll officially agree that this is "gay."

    I guess I'm not into the airbrushed abs that have been sprayed down like a slip-n-slide.

  6. I just wanna know what happened to scary werewolves in movies, period? Can anyone remember one in the last 10 years besides Dog Soldiers?
