*Vampires Suck* Hits #1 and here is my thoughts as to why....

Celebrity Gossip Reports:

"It doesn’t seem to matter what type of vampire movie it is these days, when it hits the theaters it goes straight to the top.

The parody movie "Vampires Suck" - which opened yesterday (August 18) - shot straight to the top of the day’s box office chart, where it stayed put in the No. 1 spot for the day.

It pulled in over $4 million for the day and is now expected to pull in at least $10 million more dollars over the next five days.

The spoof on movies like "Twilight" is directed by Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, and stars Jenn Proske, Matt Lanter and Chris Riggi."

My opinion on why such a strong opening for a parody movie is this... Twihards/Twifans are looking for something to fill the void in between movies (and what a long void it will be). So what if this movie is making fun of all that we love, a person who can laugh at themselves is a strong person indeed.

On the flip side you have the population of people that *shudders* hates Twilight. So they will also flock to the theatre to see these guys making fun of what they hate.

So in reality you have a movie theatre of polar opposite people there for their own reasons of love and/or hate and yet all are laughing at the same thing. Bottom line, Vampire Sucks profits from it all...and will be laughing all the way to the bank.

I totally agree with this. I know a lot of TW fans that went to see this just to have something TW to think abt.

I have a few friends that (I shudder to say) hate Twilight and went to see this for that reason in itself. *shrugs*

I saw the movie, maybe the 1st 15 minutes was funny...It just made me appreciate the Twilight Saga so much more.., Some of it was inappropriate for kids and there were little kids there with their parents...

ITA, one of my best friends thinks this movie looks hilarious and she's a big Twilight fan too. I personally think it looks funny, but i don't think I'll see it until it hits the dollar theater in my town.

We can't wait to see! (Me, 1 friend who likes Twilight and 1 who but hate it). It's already in my country, but not in my the city, but it will be next week. I'm big fan of Twilight, like everybody else in here, but this is fun, time to laugh. Some fans, just not going to see it because it's Twilight parody. But see another side, how I said fun. :)

It opened in 2nd place with like 12 million. I think many of the people were twilight fans. Because personally where I work my manager wanted to see it and tried to get a bunch of us to go with her. Personally I dont think its worth 10 dollars to see it. I saw it when it leaked online and I only laughed in actually 2 parts. The rest of it was actually pretty dumb to me. All these parody movies really arent that great. The first Scary movie was the best the after that just got dumb. But if we want to fill our Twilight void, go watch any of the 3 movies again. To help time go by my manager is throwing a Twilight Themed Halloween party! hehe
