There are many people, including Dr. Phil, who believe that the story of Bella and Edward are a bad influence on today’s young people. I was watching Dr. Phil one day and he said he found it disturbing that Edward sneaks into Bella’s room and she willingly allows him to do so.
Soon after The Twilight Saga: Eclipse was released, there were stories all over the web and news about teens biting one another as if they were a vampire. Rob Pattinson was even joking about it on Dave Letterman.
Young people often take stories and movies for real life. Vampires and werewolves are mythical creatures, who do not exist, but some teenagers take it very seriously. Is Twilight too mature for teenagers and at what age should children be allowed to read the book and see the movies? If you were to go into a church, many would say never. The simple fact is that many skeptics believe Twilight is for adults, when we can separate fact from fiction.
