All of the movies on the right were made with a larger demographic in mind. Since movies cost so much more now they usually have to market with the largest demographic appeal possible. It's the same reason you rarely see R movies.

Also all the characters on the left are antagonists while the characters on the right are protagonists. Protagonists are always meant to be more appealing so people care about their joinery, while most antagonists tend to be simple 2d stereotypes of their core concept (which with monsters is usually pure evil).

Gods - Then and Now

Then - constructs and abberations as angels, voice of God could make you lose your sanity, prophets were frightening oracles, vindictive and punitive.

Now - an old man in Rome wears tiny red shoes and rides around in a glass-enclosed golf cart. Actual omnipotent being has been AWOL for some time.

Then - Baited sea monsters with animal heads, wielded legendary weapons, heaven was a place to drink and fuck and fight for eternity, powerful fey-like overlords controlled your fate.

Now - LOL Wiccans.

Then - all kinds of cool animal hybrids, Underworld, gods named Osiris and Set and Ra, monuments built to honor their divine instruments of wrath on earth. Later, a wise warlord with multiple wives unites the disparate tribes, and lives eternally.

Twilight never bothered me because I could happily ignore it and I still haven't watched the movies. What did bother the shit out of me were how people acted like it was the end of all things gothic horror. Christfuck, I was so pissed off with how people would shitpost whining on /tg/ about it. At least /co/ had the brilliant immunity system of killing the threads by turning them in to Jojo's Bizzare Adventure threads.

Well, Kaiju are also nearly extinct. Aside from a new Godzilla movie every five years or so, the genre's very much on the ropes. Here's to Pacific Rim...

The OP's pic has multiple examples for recent bastardized iterations - Vampire iterations are a dime a dozen, as are sympathetic werewolves, and there's multiple shows in the past fifteen years that use witches as "strong females".

Strangely, aliens are less common now than one would expect, outside of animation. Star Trek going off the air is undoubtedly at fault here.

Carmilla came out before about 20 years before Dracula, and it was about a lesbian vampire seducing a woman. Varney the Vampire was a series of penny dreadfuls that came out about 50 years before Dracula and it stared a vampire who was pretty much just a normal bloke with a mild hunger for blood. It's not like vampires all used to be Count Orlok.

Werewolves being mindless killing machines infected and controlled against their will is a pretty new thing. Most European folklore werewolves were warlocks who used magic to shapeshift, though some were cursed to change. Even then, they were wolves, not wolf-man things.
