Well of course, Screenlays are, as you say Moe, the bridge between the novel and the book. I was saying though, comparatively speaking, Rosemary is near identical to the book - there is only one small thing changed at the end, because it would have looked silly. It just proves that novels/screenplays can stay completley true to the book. For example, even the decoration of the apartments, the clothes they're wearing, the exact words are all the same - it's great
Though it is a rare thing.
I thought that 'Interview with The Vampire' was quite true to the book as well, though nowhere near as close in detail etc.
Barney, the TV show's you're discussing were already successful novels and were written before Twilight, so I don't think they have anything to do with one another as they're all so vastly different IMO. I don't think the Vampire craze has ever gone away - women, especially, seem to love the concept. I find it funny how you mention the attractive men first LOL
