I found vampires cool thirty years ago, I still like 'em, although my tastes run mainly to Christopher Lee.

There are worse things for kids to get into. Let's not nitpick.

It's not as much the current tween/teen fascination with vampires as the episodic fascination by adults that I find... a little weird. I certainly have my odd tastes, but few of them are shared by the masses. That mass sway towards vampire-chic that peaks every 10 years or so is... well, weird.

I worked as an Assistant Manager at a movie theatre while going to school and I have to say the the mothers of the teens were the weirdest. Literally drooling and licking their lips over the boys in the movies......

When I saw the second movie in the series and it got to the point where Taylor Lautner took off his shirt, there was an audible gasp from pretty much every female in the audience, regardless of age, including my date. She's 60.

Pfft. Wait til she sees Chris Hemsworth as Thor. He was buff under the uniform in Star Trek, but - in the words of the tweener generation - OMFG. The guy has a pair of hams you could serve up at a Salvation Army dinner.

And then there's my personal standard for excellence of male physique, Billy Zane in The Phantom. He didn't want to wear a padded costume and had two years to prepare... that's all him and nothing but him under the spandex. There were Greek statues lining up to gape.

Jim, the late, great Christopher Reeves was all guy under his spandex, too.

Reading the comics I could never see what appeal Superman had. Reeves changed that permanently.
