How come this movie attracted 7 million viewers, if - as we are told - the public demands gore and violence in a movie to be successful?

Warner Classic TV is a non-profit organization, relying on donations. So -it is very unlikely that they *bought* this stats, like many others did.

Is it possible that we are simply attracted to beauty?

EMERALD GLOW hit it right on the nose.What's more powerful than positive vibration such as compassion and love.Remember in the beginning the dark void of chaos gave in to the life bearing properties of pure light and the outcome of this balance was the wonderous creation we have all come to know as existance.

Who do you think told you that? What X rated film was a blockbuster ? A good action film or a sexy flick will make a buck but the biggest money makers are fairly PG or PG 13 flicks. Your perceptions are in err and false conclusions follow.

In the UK the major multiplex's screen performances live from places like the Royal Opera House.

If you look at Cineworld UK, one of the main featured upcoming productions is "Shakespeares globe on screen"
[link to www.cineworld.co.uk]

These are hugely popular with people who can not get to a major theatre/opera house but have a multiplex close by.. so while there is all the gore we still have the arts.. not that I like opera or the ballet.

 Quoting: nzreva 40295562


There are also thousends of movies to watch; many of them heavily advertised everywhere - most of them abundant with all the violence, that we are allegedly "craving for".

So my question is still there.

Lets see skintight clothing and tiny tu-tu....

I think the word we are looking for is sex.

Public therefore demans violence, gore and sex...

Which if you look at any modern slasher movie they all have sex scenes - short soft porn....
