Between the Lines Productions, the company behind the “Twilight” parody film “TwiHarder,” is now suing Summit Entertainment and Lionsgate Entertainment because the companies sent repeated letters threatening legal action if Between the Lines did not cease distribution of the parody. Between the Lines now seeks payment for business disrupted and lost because of the cease-and-desist orders.
But the most intriguing part of ... Read More
How's your Halloween going? Have you carved all of the pumpkins? Have you worn your "Sexy Chucky from Child's Play" costume once already so it's kind of tattered but it'll still look so great in a dimly-lit room full of tipsy people? Are your apples bobbed and your candies corned? Cool, me too!
Listen to this mix as you prep for our national day of cosplay and lighthearted faux paganism—they're the sort of moody-spooky-sexy jams that the Lost Boys ... Read More

As the YA genre has risen in popularity in recent years, the number of female protagonists has also grown in both books and film. Besides the obvious awesomeness of this, it’s especially great for there to be strong female characters in books for younger teens. I remember having a hard time finding many books with girls as the main characters beyond anything written by Tamora Pierce when I was in middle school. (Not complaining, though. All her characters ... Read More

I’m sure you won’t mind that I’m not reciting this letter out loud to you on YouTube, the way a 14-year-old Twilight fan would. People are so full of feelings about you lately, Kristen Stewart—about your affair, your breakup, your public apology, your reconciliation. I have feelings about you too, but I’ll do my best not to make this weird.
I’m sorry that I didn’t have the best impression of you at first, when I ... Read More

If you haven’t picked out your Valentine’s Day gift to yourself yet, we’ve got you covered. Beautiful Bastard, a new novel by Christina Hobbs and Lauren Billings that launches on February 12th, started out as online Twilight fan fiction. The authors then edited and reworked their piece for publication. The book is about Chloe Mills, an ambitious intern who falls for her domineering boss, Bennett Ryan. Of course, in the original fan ... Read More

In an attempt to make some sense out of the last several years of Twilightmania, psychologist Niloo Dardashti, PsyD, HHP, has made a documentary on the hubbub surrounding Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight Saga and its effect on women. The documentary, aptly named Into the Twilight Haze, sets out to find why women of all ages are so enthralled by the franchise and what the fervor ultimately says about what women want in relationships these days. In the film, ... Read More

It is with great sadness (happiness) that I report that as of this past weekend, our long national dream (nightmare) is over. That's right, people--Breaking Dawn Part 2 premiered in theaters, thus ending The Twilight Saga once and for all, or at least until they reboot it in five years with hotter, younger actors. Just kidding, no one is younger than Taylor Lautner.When we left our young Bella (Kristen Stewart) in Part 1, she had just turned into a vampire after ... Read More

News broke yesterday that Kristen Stewart is not just involved in a fictional love triangle with a werewolf and a vampire. In fact, she is the tip of an all too real equilateral between her, her Twilight co-star/(ex?) boyfriend Robert Pattinson and the director of her last film, Snow White and the Hunstman. Not only did she commit infidelity in her own relationship, but she made the other dude an adulterer. That's right, he's married. Kristen is apparently ... Read More

When you were little, did you ever make paper snowflakes in art class? Well, papel picado is kind of like that, only much more elaborate. Originating in Mexico, the folk art involves making cuts in colored tissue paper and then stringing the designs into banners. It sounds simple, but the results are gloriously elaborate. Yreina Flores Ortiz, who owns the Etsy shop Ay Mujer, has put a modern take on her culture’s tradition by making banners you'll want ... Read More

And it's back. The fourth but fortunately not final (or unfortunately, depending on your point of view) installment of The Twilight Saga hits theaters today, and wow, is it something. Did you ever think you'd hear the words "embryonic sac" uttered in a movie about teen vampires? Most of the audience at my 12:01 AM screening last night seemed to know these technical birthing terms were coming, but it was still hard for the entire theater not to laugh when Carlisle ...
