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.
