The Paley Center NY "Vampire Weekend" on November 13-15, 2009

Dark Shadows at Twilight: A Paley Center Vampire Weekend

We are currently in the midst of an explosion in the popularity of vampires, with the Twilight movie franchise and HBO’s gothic soap True Blood leading the undead charge—suddenly, it seems, audiences want blood. Why now? Is it the parlous state of the world, economic anxieties, the end result of a morbidly sex-and-youth obsessed popular culture?

The Paley Center for Media has partnered with Entertainment Weekly to explore what’s going on. EW’s Ken Tucker will moderate a panel of informed fans to debate the relative merits of vampires across media, with special attention to the rankings of the Paley Center’s TV Vampire Poll (vote through November 2). A display of EW’s coverage of the undead phenomenon will be on view in the Spielberg Gallery through November 15.

And don’t miss the screenings of several past PALEYFEST events—with reunions of the casts and creative teams of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, True Blood, and Dark Shadows—along with the uber vamp Nosferatu and Guy Maddin’s hypnotic Dracula: Pages from a Virgin’s Diary.
