London, (ANI): Screen legend Lauren Bacall has said that the
current vampire flick Twilight is nowhere near to 1920s
horror movies when it comes to scaring audiences.
The Hollywood veteran sat down to watch the 2008 blockbuster to
check out the cinematic craze her grandchildren were so excited
about. However, a disappointed Bacall said that today"s youngsters
should watch classic scare-flicks, which are far more scary than
the Robert Pattinson starrer.
In fact, the actress sat her granddaughter down to give her a
lesson in frightening films.
"Yes, I saw Twilight - my granddaughter made me watch it, she
said it was the greatest vampire film ever. After the 'film' was
over I wanted to smack her across her head with my shoe, but I do
not want a (tell-all) book called Grannie Dearest written on me
when I die. So instead I gave her a DVD of Murnau's 1922
masterpiece Nosferatu and told her, 'Now that's a vampire
film!' And that goes for all of you! Watch Nosferatu instead!" The
Daily Express quoted Bacall as saying on her Twitter.com page.
