the books are BRILLIANT!! darren shan is my all time favourite author. i got all his vampire saga books, all his demonata books to date. and im definatley gonna get his Mr. Crepsley series which hes gonna start realleasing in october 2010!
but anyway...the film....yeh im not really to excited about. after reading the books (quite a few times over and over xD) and now i watched the trailer and a film clip its really nothing like the books. it doesnt look bad, but i no i wont enjoy it coz i read the books so many times......
i might watch it on the internet though (for free) or download it (for free) but im not gonna go spendin money on it.....if i do end up likin it...then (and only then) will i go ad buy the DVD or sommat.
but i no thats not gonna happen. most good books that are acted out as films tend to end up shit! for example harry potter...the books are amazing, and to be honest so were the first 2 films, but then they turned awful and ruined the story. same goes for that twilight series (aparantly, i never personally watched or read them) but everyone i asked says they were crap!
so, so far that harry potter, twilight series, and this is almost certain to continue the tradition. i think making these amazing books into films is an insult to darrens shans creativity! oh by the way guys, if anyone of you out there get the monthly newsletter from Shan i no it says in it that he likes them, and that hes not insulted by the films being completely different from the books..this is my opinion! =)
HOLY SHIT!! i just wrote a lot! hahaha XDDD


WHHHAATTT?! There's gonna be a series about Mr. Crepsley?!


Yup. after the demonata, which is now finished, hes going to release some one book special thing. and then, sometime next year hes gonna start writing all about mr crepsley. the series is gonna be all about mr crpesleys life from the moment he turned into a vampire to the moment he met darren....cant wait!!

Ive read the books over and over again. They have to be my favorite series of all time. & They have lead me onto various other books that top my reading list, without these books my imaginative and literary skills would be below my current.

So as a ravid fan from for years on end, and to finally hear they are making a movie. I couldn't help but SQUEE!
However, when I heard through Empire magazine that Reily is playing Mr. Crepsley. I started to loose my faith.

Twilight then appeared on screen. Thus, the creation of an all new type of vampire stereotype and guidelines of "How to make your vampire movie awesome!". I knew then that this film would turn into a flop. (No flame please -I'm talking about the kinda movie that you enjoy, yet it was nothing special, and it's as if it has all been done before. Therefore slowly erases from your mind, and in a couple of years time. You will then realize. That didn't do anything for me-).

Yah, yah. I watched it and was disappointed with the cast and the screenplay. They should of stuck with the key elements more.... It all just turned out a bit too commercial and cheese, when with the right director, could of been a darn right geniotic movie.
(this case could easily be compared to Yes Man, which yet again was the most amazing and original book, which was American and commercialized into a movie that just really doesn't succeed)... We need more Christopher Nolans.

SO I SAY: Read the books before you watch the movie! & If you really like them, read "The Demonta" series as well. Then if your feeling blood thirsty for more Darren Shan, go onto his adult trilogy, starting with "Procession of the dead".

I haven't read the books yet but I am considering. The movie, on the other hand, was pretty good - maybe, I don't really know what happened in the book, so yeah. :|

Stupid Movie. It doesnt even follow the plot! i even sent out this whole email saying which was better in according to the book; manga or movie? Most said manga. It is TOTALLY STUPID!!!! i did watch it though... it has spoilers though, so if anyone hasnt read after the... lets say... maybe 10th book (idk. i've only read up to 8) dont watch the movie.... its spoils EVERYTHING!!!!!!!

ps. Kinda off topic, but after reading those books, i have a fear of Destiny... *Shivers*

Don't even bother with the movie.
It's like they just skimmed the book and crapped out majority of the movie.
The producer must've really hated the author to ruin the series :/

never read the book,
the movie is replayed in hbo for a while,
i think its a miscast and the leading boy,
wasn't up for par, i've seen movies that i haven't read the book,
but was nicely executed, but this,
it seems to be all over the place with the story

The series is amazing, everyone should read it.
But the movie...well, let's just say it's not as good as the books. :\
