Twilight, New Moon,Vampirism and The Occult Spark Controversy
When the next Twilight film, New Moon, sinks its bloody fangs into global fans November 20, 2009, best-selling author of 23 books Steve Wohlberg won`t be touting its moral benefits to teens. In fact, Wohlberg`s take on the movie is quite the contrary, because of rampant links to the dark and dangerous worlds of occultism and real vampirism.
Wohlberg realizes that many parents and teens consider Stephenie Meyer`s tantalizing sequence of vampire romances to be wholesome fare because Edward Cullen is so noble, and he and Bella Swan wait until after marriage to have sex, yet his concerns are that hidden perils are intertwined with Twilight`s "morality," and that Hollywood is fueling an addictive, bloody phenomenon.
"Twilight is laced with occultism," Wohlberg adamantly warns. "Even the vegetarian vampires crave blood, the Cullens are members of The Olympic Coven, Edward has psychic abilities and supernatural powers, and shape shifting is showcased. It is these very activities - - or the promise of them -- that are now luring countless teenagers into the dark and dangerous world of real occultism."
The author`s newest book, "The Darkness of Twilight: Hidden Perils Behind Today`s Vampire Craze" (Remnant Publications, 2009) counters Twilight fever and exposes exploding interest in real vampirism.
Wohlberg is the speaker/director of White Horse Media (Newport, Wash.). TV producer, radio host, occult researcher, and apocalyptic expert, he is the author of 23 books, has been a guest on over 500 radio and television shows, has been featured on The History Channel episodes, "Secrets of the Seven Seals" (Oct. 21, 2009) and "Strange Rituals: Apocalypse" (Nov. 14, 2009), and has spoken by special invitation inside the Pentagon and U.S. Senate. He currently lives in Priest River, Idaho, with his wife Kristin, and their two children, Seth and Abigail.
In "The Darkness of Twilight" Wohlberg sounds a sensible warning to teens and adults. "Don`t be bitten by vampirism!" is his sober challenge.
