(wind whistling)

(distorted growl)

Come to me, come to me

Come to me, come to me


Come to me, come to me

Come to me, come to me


Come to me, come to me



No, not yet.

I had to set up first.

She's on her way to the house.

Hey, I got this, okay?

I'm doing it tonight.

(doorbell ringing)

I think she's here.

I got to go.

(phone beeps off)

(doorbell rings)

Come to me, come to me...

Come to me, come to me

Hey, baby. Mm...

Come in.

Hey, let's go upstairs,

all right?

Oh, I thought we were

gonna go see New Moon.

It's supposed to start...

No. My parents are out.

Let's just stay in, right?

And look,

I got you this.



(soft whooshing)

Do you like it?

I love it, it's beautiful.

Thank you.

Hey, you got your camera, right?


Good, because I want you

to photograph me.


I will be your muse.

(both laugh)


(camera shutter clicking)

You... are so beautiful.

Do you love me?


There's something

I need to tell you.


I'm a nightwalker.

Okay. What's a nightwalker?

It's like a vampire.


I'm just gonna

show you something.



Hey, hey!

I didn't choose

to be like this.

I-I don't know

what you're talking about.

I need to go.


We chose you.

Chose me? For what?

The nightwalkers--

we chose you.

Please just let me go.

No, no, you are not gonna go.

I love you.

What are you

talking about?

Please, please.

We can have this eternal bond,


I'm tired of killing.

If I turn you, we could feed

off each other forever.

You're acting

really crazy.

Please just let me go.

No! No...

No, Pearl! Pearl, stop!

(Pearl screams)

Please, please,

just leave me alone.


Get off of me!


It'll be better

for the both of us.

I don't understand

what you want from me.

Please, come on!

Please, just let me go!

You're the most important

thing in the world to me!

Come on!



Get back! (grunts)


(Pearl grunts)

(Pearl grunting)




(whimpers quietly)

I never meant...

to hurt you.

You're a nightwalker now.

And you are

gonna thirst...

and kill...

until you find

your one true love.



(distant howling)




(groaning, sobbing)


(screaming continues)

(growls, hisses)

(whispering voices)

(sucking, gulping)

(man whimpering)

Oh, no.


(indistinct chatter)


Vampires and sexuality.

Now, some argue that the

insatiable thirst for blood,

that makes vampires

metaphorically sexual creatures.

Bram Stoker:

he takes vampires

as a sex metaphor

to a whole new level.

He creates Dracula

as a queer figure.

So in contrast to Dracula,

what sort of bond

would Van Helsing have

with his band

of vampire hunters?


Heteronormative, yeah?

At least, it seems that way.


So, their quest to end Dracula,

it's also to reaffirm

that their own homosocial bonds

aren't queer.


Okay, so then Dracula

needed to be killed

because of Victorian homophobia,

but also because

he was a murderer.

Right. Yeah?


What about Twilight?


What about it?

Well, the Twilight point of view

is new, isn't it?

I mean, it makes vampires

good and-and cool.

It makes everyone

want to be a vampire.

Do you want

to be a vampire, Dan?



All right.

The Twilight books suck.

All right.

They don't all suck.

The first Twilight

book was good,

because it made teen sex

dangerous again.

Edward has to distance

himself from Bella

because of her blood

and later,

he won't have sex with her

because he's afraid he'll get

too excited and kill her.


I'd like to see where

you're gonna go with this.

In the past,

teen sex was forbidden.

A pregnancy out of wedlock

was, like, death.

But now, in our day,

we have Teen Mom shows,

and everyone

can just use condoms.

The first Twilight book

was great

because it equated teen sex

with death again.

And then they screwed

it up in the later books,

when he starts holding out

just because

he's a "Victorian gentleman."

And then they actually get

married as teens to have sex,

which is just a way

to cash in on teen sexuality

while trying to seem

morally responsible.

It's absurd.

Very interesting thoughts.

You can all

catch them, too, on Leah's

podcast for pop culture.


So, please, join it.

You know what?

I think we're

gonna end on that.

Your next reading chapters

will be listed in the syllabus.

Be careful of vampires.


Have a good day.

(indistinct chatter)

Hey, Leah!

Leah, wait up!

Oh, hey, Bob.


Ready for auditions tonight?

Oh, yeah.

I'm a little nervous.

Macbeth is tough.


You're gonna get

Lady Macbeth.

I mean, you're amazing.


So you ready for the, uh,

country club

Halloween party this year?

My parents told me

that your mom's

been doing a lot

of the planning?

Yeah, she gets so into it.

It's so embarrassing.



I'm gonna go study

my lines, okay?

Yeah, sure.


I'll see you tonight?

Yeah, yeah,

yeah, of course.

All right.

Break a leg!



(bell tolling)


And all our yesterdays

have lighted fools

the way to dusty death.


Out, brief candle!

Life's but a walking shadow.

A poor player that struts

and frets his hour
