Back for its fourth season is everyone's favorite Vampire series, True Blood. I'll admit...I stopped watching the show halfway through the train wreck that was season three. My hopes were crushed and I found myself unable to pay attention any longer to the ridiculous storylines and unbelievable character arcs. A friend of mine is a complete and total diehard fan of the series and assured me that season four was more than making up for season three. Against my better judgement, I gave the show another chance. You know something, I'm so very glad that I did. Season four packs a hell of a punch and Anna Paquin is as cute as ever. Luckily for fangbangers everywhere, season four was powerful enough for HBO to renew the show for a fifth season to come out this summer.
To put it bluntly, horror movies this year were less than stellar and horror television shows seem to be paving the way for genre fanatics everywhere. Horror filmmakers everywhere should take a page from the book of these shows. Remakes and sequels don't have to be the status quo, your audiences are THIRSTING for originality and characters they actually care about. Quit slacking off and relying on jump scares and CGI and focus on what they teach you the first day of film school...the storyline matters.
