Fang feud: ‘Jennifer’s Body’ vs. ‘True Blood’

There’s sooo many vampires.

No, that’s not a line from "Buffy," but there does seem to be a blood-suckapalooza in TV and film nowadays.  It’s not a new phenom, but "Twilight," "Underworld 3," "True Blood" and "Jennifer’s Body" (which may not technically be vampiric, but she apparently eats people) have brought it back to the forefront. What’s next, a vampire Mr. Toast? Is nothing sacred?!

Maybe it’s too much for the creative marketing folks to handle. Look at the poster mash-up (that seems to be everywhere) for "True Blood," HBO’s series starring Anna Paquin, and "Body," a film that once featured a barely clothed Megan Fox.


Of course!Why didn’t I see it? One has a tongue with a trickle of blood going to the left, the other is going to the right. Guess that’s different enough to not be confusing. Just remember — "Body" = tongue to the left, "Blood" = tongue to the right.
