Yes! get rid of these vampire movies - they are sick.

And zombies are also disgusting.

Get over it dude. If you don't wanna watch movies with a horror theme, then don't. But I can't understand why you think these ideas deserve their own posts. There is literally NO substance to this post.

Yes,

What Hollywood is doing is turning teens onto vampires and all horrors.

They only want money.

They don't care that your teen is having hideous images in their brain. And is into death and vampires and zombies.

Because some people have a tendency to ruin it for the rest of people. They whine and moan because they have nothing better to do in their lives than bitch about things that do not really matter.

There have been plays (old forms of movies) throughout all of our civilization, that have contained violence and fictitious beings. These have been commonplace and will continue to be, the most important thing is that you realize that these fictitious beings are just that, fictitious.

Movies that glorify war are much more detrimental to our growing children as they actually believe war to be beneficial to the soldiers or to the people whose country where the war is taking place, when suicide rates among vets have never been higher nor have the PTSD numbers. If the true atrocity of war was known there would no people willing to fight in one (minus the crazy religious people who think they are doing it for a god, who is a fictitious itself).

Of all the fictitious stuff that is polluting our world and our children 'god' should be at the top for being detrimental.

compound that with religious weirdo communions - sets the psyche to a point of acceptance.

offer yourself to a vampire, love vampires, have sex with vampires etc sic

It is a conspiracy... it is called subtle training... introduce a concept at an age so that they can be futher controlled.

for egads sake! 10 years ago the education curriculum stated for a FACT god existed etc NOW the curriculum states god does not exist..

we are all susceptible to programming and children/teenages are vulnerable!!

You are, of course, welcome to your opinion about zombie and vampire movies, but I don't understand why this is posted in the Medical Issues & Conspiracies forum?

Also, if you have issues with your own teens watching these types of movies; parent up and make them stop, that is one of the many duties of being a parent.

Sexualisation of children in the contemporary media, June 2008

Hanging out and Growing up with social media

Television(TV) and Children(Development and Behaviour)


What about TV and aggressive or violent behavior?
Literally thousands of studies since the 1950s have asked whether there is a link between exposure to media violence and violent behavior. All but 18 have answered, "Yes." The evidence from the research is overwhelming. According to the AAP, "Extensive research evidence indicates that media violence can contribute to aggressive behavior, desensitization to violence, nightmares, and fear of being harmed." [14] Watching violent shows is also linked with having less empathy toward others [14a].

Exactly, besides, pretty much any zombie movie owns any recent vampire movie. This drivel is just frustrated writers fulfilling unrealistic sexual fantasies on teens, which is no different from the photoshopped crap you see on magazine covers about how to be perfect little teens.

Don't like it, don't watch it...
Have kids and don't like it? Don't let them watch it.

Criminology FSU - Learning
Certainly, it can not be proven that a media depiction might stimulate an otherwise ordinary person to commit a crime. Although research has established the media's influence on some deviant behaviors, it has not established a direct causal connection between media stimuli and specific deviant behaviors apart from other variables appearing in combination. Simply because a media depiction is followed by the reoccurrence of a similar event does not indicate a connection. In some cases, alleged copycats have stated they knew nothing of the previous publicized incident. Research is needed in the areas of long-term media effects, media models, and at-risk populations. For example, what is the long-term impact of viewing of thousands of violence acts in cartoons and television shows watched by children as they grow up?


The influence of technology, media and popular culture and criminal behaviour page 31 is relevant.


Like her character,her violence both horrified and empowered audiences, and became the inspiration for
a string of unprecedented violent female copycats (Box 10.2).

Good, I'm glad they don't state God's existence as fact because it isn't.

Bringing kids up to believe God is real despite a lack of proof is more harmful than them sneaking off to watch a low budget horror movie.

I just hate it when they trivialize the main weakness of vampires, like sparkling in sunlight, or giving them a magic ring to protect against it.

If I was a vampire, and could walk in the sun without roasting, I'd be carving out an empire somewhere!
