David Slade is set to direct another vampire film.  “The Last Voyage of the Demeter” will be Slade’s third vampire film to be added to his resume.  His credits currently include “30 Days of Night” and “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse”.  Digital Spy reports that the script for the film was written over a decade ago and that the project had struggled to find a director.  They also describe the film as follows:

The film tells the story of the ship featured in Bram Stoker’s classic Dracula, which transports Dracula from Transylvania to London but is found washed up on the English shore filled with the bodies of dead sailors.


“Remember Me”,Robert Pattinson’s non-Twilight release of 2010, recently claimed the number two spot in the “10 Best Chick Flicks 2010” list over on 

2.”Remember Me” – Featuring career-defining performances by Emilie de Ravin and “Twilight” star Robert Pattinson, this film about two tortured college students who find love and comfort in one another while enduring painful losses remains one of the ten best chick flicks of 2010, despite its lukewarm reception by critics and audiences.

 “TWILIGHT” ONE OF MOST ROMANTIC MOVIES OF MILLENIUM has named “Twilight” to their list of “Most Romantic Movies Ever…This Millenium”.  The film ranks at the #18 spot out of 20 movies on the list, edging out “Bridget Jones’ Diary” and “Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist”.  Topping the list is “The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”.   Here’s what they had to say about “Twilight”:

Like you haven’t heard of this one. The global phenomenon that keeps on giving, “Twilight” was the film that launched Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart into the stratosphere as the hottest on-screen (and off?) couple to come along in quite some time. As the resident high school vampire Edward, Pattinson broods and poses his way through class, attracting the attention of Bella (Stewart), a shy teen who quickly takes a liking to the pale-skinned looker. Together, the two embark on a passionate (albeit chaste) romance. Edward doesn’t have blood running through his veins; Lucky for us, the same can’t be said of this hormonally-charged film.

 What do you think of the film that David Slade will be directing?  From the sound of things, I think that they’ve found a great director for the project.  I love what he did with the vampires (newborn and Cullens) in “Eclipse” and the tone that he set for the film.  “30 Days of Night”, while gruesome, was a great vampire flick.

I was glad to see “Remember Me” on a top 10 list for last year.  A lot of sites have bashed the movie because it didn’t rake in boatloads of cash like the “Twilight” films have done, but it still made money and no one expected it to be a blockbuster.  Personally, I loved the movie and can’t help but get teary eyed thinking of the ending and the little girl who was Tyler’s little sister.  If you haven’t seen it yet, you should. 

What do you think about the ranking of “Twilight” on the romantic movies list?   While I am a big fan and won’t argue that it should be at the top of the list, I do question having “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” ahead of it.
