Twilight: Obsession

Stephenie Meyer's Twilight swept across continents to become one of the world's best-selling teenage romance novels; then a tremendously successful movie franchise that one could rightfully say people are obsessed with. This program follows the sensation of Twilight from the novel to its on-screen adaption; it profiles the film's stars, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner and Kristen Stewart, who were once relative unknowns and now are worldwide household names adored by millions; it also looks at spin-offs and rumors that Twilight has created. The DVD includes four segments that expand on the supernatural, literature and the movies: Vampires - explores the public's insatiable lust to continue the vampire myth from Dracula to Underworld to Twilight. Harry Potter - examines the hugely successful book and movie franchise about witchcraft and wizardry. True Blood - offers a profile on the HBO series that stars Anna Paquin as Sookie Stackhouse, a telepathic waitress who fell in love with a vampire. Teen Stars - Features a look at Dakota Fanning, who stars as Jane in New Moon, and Daniel Radcliffe, who played Harry Potter since 2001 to become one of Hollywood's most successful stars. Produced by Switch International. 2013 JSCA 30 min.
