Are “real” vampires afraid of skeptics?

The Vampyre Academy released a poll asking self-identified vampires how they thought vampirologists should behave. Here’s what I have to say about it. In a previous post I commented on my newfound knowledge concerning the animosity and hostility that exists betwixt the varying cliques within the modern vampire community. It would seem, however, that there…

Triple Murder Tied to The “Blue” Moon?

Escambia County Deputies suspect witchcraft was a motivating factor in the savage murders of a mother and her two sons in Pensacola last week. I’m often frustrated by news reports, whether on the local level or national and even international. Frequently there is little information actually transmitted, with entire articles amounting to little more than…

Interview with a Vampire Fighter

Full transcript available at my blog: http://evilcheezproductions.blogspot.com/ I was thrilled this week to be able to participate in a telephone interview with THE STRAIN and ANT MAN star Corey Stoll. Even though I didn’t get my question in the queue soon enough to have it answered (there was only a short amount of time allotted…

Nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah-nah . . . Man-Bat!

Here are some of the scariest movies in video games, including ‘Resident Evil,’ ‘Dead Space,’ and even ‘Batman’! I’ve always felt Man-Bat never got the credit he deserves. He should be one of Batman’s top villains, in my opinion, one of the most revered of the rogue’s gallery. (Batman is tied with Spider-Man, I maintain,…

Is Lauren Adkins the ultimate “Twilight” fan? On January 26, 2013, she married a Robert Pattinson cardboard cut-out. But there’s much more to the story. Last week I wrote about a woman who claims she is involved in a sexual relationship with Bigfoot. (Despite the fact she’s of menopausal age, they’re trying to conceive!) The…

Has the Chupacabra relocated?

A number of Russian villages have found hundreds of dead chickens and mysterious footprints but no blood. Some are blaming the killings on a chupacabra. Stepping into the spotlight in the 1990’s, becoming an object of interest not only for those fascinated by occult phenomena but also to the mainstream media, the Chupacabra had been…

The Strain – Dracula Retold

US TV series The Strain features an epidemic of the supernatural beings that have captivated audiences since Dracula. But vampires long predate Bram Stoker, writes Roger Luckhurst. It’s cute when non-vampire people try to get all scholarly and analyze the phenomenon of the vampire. But the author of this particular article, Birkbeck College Professor Roger…

Highgate, the Vampire Watergate

“Does a Wampyr Walk in Highgate?” asked the Ham & High 45 years ago. Evidence says no. Erin Chapman tracks the Highgate Vampire to some logical conclusions. Do you need a refresher on the Highgate Vampire scenario? Here’s the Cliff’s Notes version: In the 1970s, there was a media furor surrounding London’s Highgate Cemetery, when…

Billy the Kid once said any man who loves chili can’t be all bad. Well, any man who hates TWILIGHT . . .

In a postscript, Veiovis expresses his “sincere condolences to the families involved in this tragic case.” When I first read about Caius Veiovis, a convicted killer and professing “vampire” who sports horns and a forked (i.e. split) tongue, I thought, “That does sound like a vampire name.” Immediately followed by the thought, “Probably means it…

Witch’s Grave found on Scottish Coast

Back in 1704, in Torryburn on the south west Fife coast, they had a problem disposing of toxic material – it was what you might call a toxic witch problem. I knew that in centuries past suicides were often interred at crossroads, the reason for this being the fear that the dead would return as…

Blood Feud!

I confess my ignorance of this one. I knew that there were people out there who believed themselves to be “real” vampires, and that there were people who engaged in the “vampire” lifestyle, going as far as consuming blood. What I didn’t know was that there are differing factions in this “community,” nor would I…

Jack the Ripper Museum: Education or Exploitation?

A project billed as the “first women’s museum in the UK” in east London has been unveiled as a site dedicated to the serial killer Jack the Ripper. When you start off lying to people, it doesn’t speak well for your motivations. I totally get why they did it: it is easier to ask for…
