    This may sound strange to say, but I think they are taking this too seriously. This should be done more tongue-in-cheek like Buffy (or Monster Squad which was my first thought.)

    As it is…meh.

    I haven’t finished the novel yet, but cheesey or tongue in cheek is exactly the wrong way to handle this idea. I suggest you read the book and think about it a bit. Handling it tongue in cheek would end up like “Song of the South” only with vampires.

    I’m all over this like a cheap suit. This looks like a boat-load of fun. I’m looking more forward to watching this than the Dark Knight Rises (which I have been completely disappointed with everything released on so far).

    Um, are the vampires being used as a metaphor for the South here?

    Not to give away any of the plot, but the vampires find it easier to go unnoticed and claim victims in the slaveholding states, since nobody cared much about what happened to slaves.
