The Film: Twilight (2008)
The Vamp: Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson), a brooding, lonely sort who travels with his “family” and strikes up a relationship with the clearly insane Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart).
Edward is the sort of dreamboat that makes girls go tingly in the nethers – and their mothers like him too. Did they all forget that he’s a killer? An undead monster of a killer. It must be the hair.
Why Are They Weird? He and the rest of his clan have sworn off human blood. Oh, and they don’t have fangs. And can go out in the sun, but they avoid that because it makes them look like they’ve overdone the glitter body makeup.
As vampires, they make great emo band members.
Fangs for the trivia: Henry Cavil was the first – and novel writer Stephanie Meyer’s choice for the lead, but by the time the film was shooting, he was 25 and looked too old to play 17.
