From Movieline Article
This weekend, fans and critics will dissect The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1, to evaluate the film’s dreamy wedding, nightmare pregnancy
and cinematic merit. But what does the actual vampire community think about the latest Stephenie Meyer adaptation that features Robert Pattinson as a
hunky bloodsucker, Kristen Stewart as his teen bride and Taylor Lautner as a walking set of abs?
To get answers, Movieline tracked down an Atlanta-based, self-identified vampire named Merticus who —- in spite of his community’s near-universal
hatred of the tween-targeted franchise — was willing to shed light on the vampire misconceptions perpetuated in the latest Twilight installment.
Merticus is a founding member of the Atlanta Vampire Alliance and Vampire Community News. In addition to consulting about the vampire community,
organizing gatherings and collecting period works pertaining to the occult, the married 33-year-old vampire works as an antiques dealer.
