Another GHOST RIDER? Another LEFT BEHIND? Say it ain’t so!

Not a day goes by without hearing a new story about a celebrity being a vampire, and new “old” photographs emerge from somebody’s basement or grandpa’s photo album.

Redneck Vampires

A 20-year-old Alabama man has been charged with a sick and twisted crime — burning a “V” into the forehead of a teenager, claiming to police that he’s a vampire. I used to live next door to a vampire. At least HE thought he was a vampire. It’s a sad story. This kid, in his…

Old Vampires of New England

Far from a mere archaic legend of ancient peoples half a world away, these undead revenants were said to prowl the night of New England as recently as the 19th century.
