The long version: If you're a fan of the books, this film will betray you. If you're a fan of the vampire mystique, this film will disappoint you. If you're a fan of TruBlood, this film will sicken you. Save your $12.
Note: This reviewer, too cowardly to risk his immortal soul, declined an invitation to actually watch this film and has instead relied on his wife, who selflessly sacrificed herself so that we may all be saved from this unholy abomination.
