Kindred: The reign of terror over popular culture persists.
And for once, a Svennebanan got in among the absolute elite.
It was well thought 2008 would be the vampire of great years.
But chopping tooth wave in popular culture has not waned in the least in 2009, but rather to take, and while the horror fantasy which was predicted to take over the throne – as werewolves and zombies – may have begun to rehabilitate themselves, they have so far not a chance against the much sexy bloodsucker.
There are still vampires are masters of the Hill.
Fanhysterin about Alan Ball “True blood” – whose first season will premiere on SVT this Wednesday, and the others have already shown in the U.S. (and soon in Swedish Canal Plus) – keeps growing. The U.S. ungdomsnischade channel CW’s “The Vampire Diaries” is one of autumn’s most hajypade new TV series. And “Twilight” sequel “New Moon”, which is in the pipeline in the cinemas, are unlikely to make less noise about himself than his predecessor.
In addition, the South Korean master director Park Chan-wook vampire roll “Thirst” – which is hardly a blockbuster, but guaranteed to attract its fair share of connoisseurs and cineaster with a taste for blood.
Vampires in other words, more bite than ever.
And the lead is a tall, blond and handsome Swedish, whose teeth right now seems to have the whole USA to drool.
And no, it’s not just that we Swedes (which we usually do once a compatriot has done a job on the other side of the Atlantic) imagines us.
Alexander Skarsgård has taken over there now. For real. Net full of tributes to his old “True Blood” character Eric Northman, and the guy is in the peak shift on numerous sexiest vampires-lists in both blogs and newspapers.
Entertainment Entertainment Weekly Bible speaks even of “the cult of Skarsgard, and has put out a clip from the old abused” dog trick “on their site, so readers should be able to see the Scandinavian bull taking a shower in their natural habitat. (And then share with their aunt dirty thoughts in the comments box below …)
And if not, the fact that “Dog Trick” of all movies, has won an international audience, telling you something about how hot Skarsgård is visiting … Well, then learns nothing to do it.
