What is it with vampire hairdos?

So of course Twilight -- "the hottest books since Harry Potter" -- is being turned into a movie series. Vampires as angsty romantic love objects? Haven't we been here before? Ho-hum.

Then I chanced upon the movie poster and had a big laugh. Seriously?! Is this James Dean making a comeback?

But what really got me was the hair. What is it with vampire hair? I mean, is it supposed to look cool? Tell me, please! Because I don't get it.

Methinks he needs a bit more sunlight.

When he's older, his hair will look like this. (That's the versatile Gary Oldman in the 1992's "Bram Stoker's Dracula.")

And when he's really senile, he'll look like this. (That's Leslie Nielsen in probably the best vampire movie of all time, "Dracula: Dead and Loving It.")
