I’m not presenting this as a serious concern – more as an idle question – but, I was wondering:
You’ve heard of the idea that once a file enters the winding tubes of the internet, it can never truly be erased? Well, will we ever reach a point where we’ve produced so much content; content which no longer disappears when libraries burn, or pages rip, or film degrades; that we’ll simply have no need to produce more?
If youtube readily provides five-thousand flavours, spanning a hundred years, of undead movies, why create yet another vampire flick?
Because we need more Sparkly Vampires! They’re under represented ya know.
Movies are expressions of the human experience and while some things are universal and never change, man keeps growing and evolving so the movies must too. Much as I love Nosferatu and despise Twilight the genre does keep evolving. I assume that in 100 years they will have so messed up vampire lore that we will pine for the good old days of sparkly vampires.
