What werewolf movie are you talking about

How come whenever there is a movie in it that includes both werewolves and vampires, the movie is automatically dubbed a “vampire” movie? Take for example Twilight – the other day I tried to refer to it as a werewolf movie, and everyone looked at me in confusion – “what werewolf movie are you talking about? Is there another movie called Twilight with werewolf moviewerewolves? Hey, I want to see the werewolf version of Twilight!” Of course the movie has both vampires and werewolves in it – in fact, the same number of each! But automatically, it’s known as a vampire movie! Noone can even fathom it as a werewolf movie! A better example is the movie New Moon – in New Moon, the vampires hardly play a role at all until the end of the movie. Most of the movie is in fact all about Bella and Jacob (the werewolf)….but does anyone consider New Moon a werewolf movie?  Just try to refer to it as a werewolf movie to one of your friends, and you’ll see the reaction…in everyone’s mind it too is clearly a vampire movie.  And another example is Underworld – I think of it as a werewolf movie, but I have been corrected many many times that it is a vampire movie.  Vampire movie, really?!   It’s about a vampire-werewolf war! Why can’t it be a werewolf movie?!

The two key characteristics of the werewolf movie seem to be that:

  1. the lead character be a werewolf (if the lead character is a human, and there is both a vampire and a werewolf in the movie playing equal parts, the movie will automatically be a vampire movie) and
  2. there be no vampires in the movie (see #1)

It seems that in Hollywood movie producers and the public believe that any movie that has a vampire in it has to be a vampire movie.  Or maybe it’s not that it has to be a vampire movie, but that they want it to be a vampire movie.  Vampires are still the obsession.  Humans still don’t relate well to werewolves – they’re too different…though you’d think an undead creature like a vampire would be the most different of all!

  2. i like…. well i like twilight! but then again… the characters are weird with the overated drama. -.-

  3. Too true. Just mention Underworld: Rise of the Lycans to anyone and you get that same reaction, even though the main character is a werewolf and its about how the werewolves come into power.

    Yes of course. Because theres only approximately 6 billion humans on the planet to mass slaughter, then of course we can all be incestual because thats so healthy. Really, think about what you are saying.

    Well, Underworld is a werewolf movie, but also a vampire movie.
    Twilight is a human-vampire-werewolf movie.
    Is about all.

    wait let me get this straight in one of the earlier posts by Lycan Grimfang ‘Too true. Just mention Underworld: Rise of the Lycans to anyone and you get that same reaction, even though the main character is a werewolf and its about how the werewolves come into power.’ it’s called rise of the lycans and people are saying it’s not about werewolves for god sake!
