Review: Dark Shadows Blu-ray Combo Pack

Dark Shadows Blu-ray Combo Pack ~ Warner Bros.

Warner Bros. sent me a copy of Dark Shadows Blu-ray Combo Pack for review on my dad blog. The movie is about a playboy (Barnabas Collins) who was turned into a vampire and then buried alive for almost two centuries. When he returns to the living, Barnabas has to adjust to the modern world. I enjoyed Dark Shadows, but I thought the story fell apart at the end. Even though the ending was a bit disappointing, I think most people will still enjoy the film. You can own Dark Shadows on Blu-ray Combo Pack or Digital Download on October 2nd (Tuesday).

The Perfect Gag Gift for the Twilight Infected

I found this book at the library: Nightlight: A Parody by The Harvard Lampoon ($10.04). When I brought it home, my wife started jumping up and down because she thought I checked out a new Twilight book. And then I read the back cover to her:

Nightlight: A Parody by The Harvard LampoonAbout three things I was absolutely certain. First, Edwart was most likely my soul mate, maybe. Second, there was a vampire part of him – which I assumed was wildly out of his control – that wanted me dead. And third, I unconditionally, irrevocably, impenetrably, heterogeneously, gynecologically, and disreputably wished he had kissed me. And thus Belle Goose falls in love with the mysterious and sparkly Edwart Mullen in the Harvard Lampoon’s hilarious send-up of Twilight. Pale and klutzy, Belle arrives in Switchblade, Oregon looking for adventure, or at least an undead classmate. She soon discovers Edwart, a super-hot computer nerd with zero interest in girls. After witnessing a number of strange events (Edwart leaves his tater tots untouched at lunch and then Edwart saves her from a flying snowball) Belle has a dramatic revelation: Edwart is a vampire. But how can she convince Edwart to bite her and transform her into his eternal bride, especially when he seems to find girls so repulsive? Complete with romance, danger, insufficient parental guardianship, creepy stalker-like behavior, and a vampire prom, Nightlight is the uproarious tale of a vampire-obsessed girl, looking for love in all the wrong places.
