How to redeem the vampire genre after “Twilight”?
Take an old vampire story (not “Dracula”… it’s way overdone and frankly - boring), perhaps a good lesbian romance… Let all the action take place in a single dorm room. Let it all happen in the form of vlogs. Turn it into a web series… about a web series. Let 90% of the cast be female and let the characters act naturally, none of that “submissive damsel in distress” or “I’m only acting tough so the guys would like me” stuff. Name your creation “Carmilla”.
Voila - you just brought into the world the best thing to ever involve vampires!
