Rolling Stone’s “True Blood” Cover Is Bloody And Nakedy

Posted by Moxie on August 17th, 2010

*Yawn*. Booooooring. I don’t even watch this show and I know that everyone on it is naked and bloody ALL THE TIME. Call me when there are naked people who aren’t making goofy faces and covered in chocolate syrup. Although if Anna Paquin would move her thigh juuuuuust a little bit…I might forgive how stupid this cover is.

I think the problem is that it’s just naked people Jackson Pollack-ed with fake blood. There’s nothing interesting in the composition, and nothing original has been done with the theme; even the copy is half-assed, like a fake headline you’d see in a Photoshop class. Even though Twilight is lame, at least it tries to inject a bit of drama (with varying amounts of success). True Blood is supposed to be creepy-campy, so there’s no excuse for laziness: make it crazy-goofy, crazy-scary, or crazy-hot, just make it better. What do y’all think?
