“…Caroline … despite Elena’s protests, shut off her humanity for the time being.”

Caroline, without her humanity, is totally a new experience for me; she’s always been very together, organized, and –honestly, very flip. Caroline, even when she was alive, was able to distance herself from emotional ordeals with a certain amount of apathy. Not that it made her a bitch, –though a lot of people didn’t like her or thought she was shallow when the show was in its early seasons. 

I never thought of Caroline as shallow, because I can understand where she’s coming from, –I am a divorcee, so I understand rejection despite lots of effort. The thing is, I can’t turn off my emotions, and I’m not as good at projecting my negativity into productive projects, so I always envied that. But without her emotions, will she be a psycho like Stefan, or will she just be a less vulnerable version of her normal self?

“The group have revealed that they’ll be releasing a brand-new comic book, The Vigilante.”

Ah, vampire music, –when I first saw this, I was like, “Omg, keep them away, hiss!” Because, y’know, me being a vampire and all, I feared for my life. But then, I saw that they weren’t, y’know The Fearless Vampire Killers that I was expecting, –they’re actually just a bunch of tasty emo kids. Especially the one second to the left. Yum, right? I’d so snack on that one there… 

Which spurred me to listen to their music, and dude, they suck nowhere near as much as those jerks in Vampire Weekend. So do check it out, –and since I also love comic books, –they score double points with me for releasing their own indie comic. They’re also releasing a novel, too, called Militia of the Lost. Try them out; theatrical rock is sort of… new to me, but I’ll give anything a shot, you should too!

“There are hundreds of reasons to love romance novels, but one of them is that these love stories give us the chance to relive the joy and buoyancy of all the “firsts” of love…”

Okay, so, I know I have been publicly negative about vampire erotica/romance; the genre tends to be disappointing. But February is almost over, and Valentine’s day is long gone, but for some of us… you know, those of us who didn’t get roses and candy and really good sex, –there’s still a chance to get all that stuff elsewhere, vicariously…. through vampire romance.

What’s great about these books, are they were only recently released, and some haven’t been released just yet, but they’re on their way. So start this list chronologically. First, Forbidden to Love the Duke by Jillian Hunter. If it sounds sexy, that’s because it is, –and it’s the beginning of a brand new series. Next, read The Immortal Who Loved Me, by Lynsay Sands, –the vampires in her novels are ancient survivors of the city of Atlantis. That’s supposed to be out at the end of February, –and here we are, –at the end of February. Oh, and that one is definitely on my list. It’s also a sequel to Vampire Most Wanted, –so read that one first. By the time you get done with those two, you’ll be ready for The Red Bikini, and its sequel, Ten Good Reasons, which comes out early April! Get ready to read sexy, and therefore, feel sexy, all the way into spring!

In her debut feature, filmed in America but with dialogue in Farsi, Ana Lily Amirpour creates a dark ghost world.

Welcome to “Bad City”; where a beautiful young Iranian vampire in a chador stalks the streets at night. The city is American-Iranian, and the movie, in the creator’s own words is meant to be a “surreal pop fairytale”; and filming it in black and white helped to establish this tone. Though the film was shot in American, the dialogue is Farsi. 

A bit of trivia that I really enjoyed here, mentioned in the source article; “The Girl” –our Farsi vampire, has a lot of posters in her room, and one of them looks like a shot of Madonna, but it’s actually a portrait of Margaret Atwood, –whom the creator of the film, Ana Lily Amirpour, met at a comic book convention and asked if she would do the shot. Atwood agreed, and now her poster is in the movie. Margaret Atwood is one of my single favorite authors of all time, so that’s wild, and totally cool. Do you need any more awesome reasons to see this movie? Click through to the source to see the trailer!

“Some of my very best gaming memories, come from a series of vampire games that had a better bromance than Twilight….”

The vampire game Legacy of Kain: Dead Sun was supposed to be released in 2012, but never made it out of the development stage. The plug was pulled, and the project was cancelled. but not before they managed to get a few cool videos out of the deal. So the source article has a YouTube video, some photos of the gameplay and –FYI, if you were wondering what the hell series this was in, think “Soul Reaver” –this was supposed to be the next game in line to that release. 

Alas, it just didn’t make it, and chances are, it won’t re-enter development, or get picked up by another company. So… be sad. I know I am. :(

“Leila Saraostre has just moved to Paris and has fallen for the mysterious Uriel Rothven! Experience a Vampire Romance!”

I love these little point-and-click adventure games, –for a while there, I was a huge fan of all things Diner Dash and I’ve been playing the Nancy Drew series faithfully for years. Then when the Charlaine Harris vampire game was released, Dying for Daylight, I adored that one and played through it too. So I did actually get addicted to vampire theme hidden object games too.

Now there’s a new one out; this one is called A Vampire Romance: Paris Stories. The game is only rated two out of five stars by the players on Big Fish Games, –which means the graphics are simplistic, the storyline and captions are probably riddled with typos and grammatical errors… but! for the die-hard hidden object addicts like myself, we’re dedicated enough to pick this one up anyway.

angels.of.darkness.coverBeginning March 1, 2015 the motion picture Styria aka Curse of Styria aka Angels of Darkness will begin airing on Showtime Cable. This most recent major film adaptation of Joseph Sheridan LeFanu’s gothic classic Carmilla has been in the works for several years and vampires.com has been covering it for nearly as long! We even published a three-part interview with writer-director Mark Devendorf (his co-writer-director was Mauricio Chernovetsky).  The production company organized a crowd-funding campaign to finish post-production, eventually exceeding their goal.

In essence, this adaptation of what is in many ways the very first story of lesbian vampires eschewed fangs and ripped bodices for more disturbing, nightmarish fare.  Resetting the tale into not-quite-modern times, the film takes place in the 1980s behind the Iron Curtain.  This parallels the original, because Austria was widely seen as a police state for readers in 1872.  Lara, the lead (played by Eleanor Tomlinson who’s gone on to co-star in The White Queen as well “The Labours of Hercules” for Poirot), has just been expelled from boarding school.  We never learn precisely why, a nice touch in keeping with the overall atmosphere of mystery.  Her father must take her therefore with him on an expedition for which he has been years planning.  Professor Hill (Stephen Rea, best known perhaps for Interview With the Vampire as well as V for Vendetta and of course The Crying Game) intends to save a series of murals painted many decades past in the old Karnstein Castle.  Estranged father and daughter almost immediately run afoul of locals, in a variety of ways. Yet in truth they cannot or will not turn to one another.

Picture-7Enter Carmilla (Julia Pietrucha), a secretive local girl fleeing the secret police who becomes a friend and confidante, maybe more to the desperately lonely Lara.

Soon events begin taking a bizarre turn.  Local young women begin going mad, then committing suicide in clusters.  Villagers look upon the strangers–Lara and her father–with blame.  Lara herself finds a hitherto-unknown mural, while more secrets slowly reveal themselves about this place and this time.  Carmilla proves to be not at all what any of us (including the audience) might think.  Unspoken truths emerge between father and daughter.  Fears and hopes bleed into one another while reality itself seems to shimmer into something else.

Stephen-Rea-nNow the film is available on both Amazon and on iTunes.  Likewise Monolith Films will be releasing the motion picture in Poland soon (many of the supporting players were Polish actors).   This marks one of several different versions of Carmilla to have emerged in the last four  years.  Frankly this and others seem to mark a new direction in the wave of vampire media, a more mature and disturbing, less easy-going or fun-loving approach to the idea of the living dead who drink the blood of the living.  More, the filmmakers explicitly sought to explore the idea of feminine power repressed.

Having seen the film, allow me to say for the record this enjoys truly superior performances by the entire cast.  The visuals remain eerily beautiful, often startling in composition.  Location shooting at a gorgeous Hungarian castle certainly helped a lot. Most of all, the script treated its subject matter with total seriousness.  Exploitive, no. Fascinating and disturbing? Very much yes.  Both screenwriters delved into the very heart of what the “gothic” was all about–inherited evil, dark desires, a blur between the real, the lie and dream, coupled with the kind of intense passion the very young adults (what we today call teenagers) feel about the world.

“…how she was bitten and became a vampire…”

The lovely vampire here is very mysterious, and scares all the men around her: even the comedian at the bar she was at was like, all, “Oh em gee! Are them your teeth?” The video is short and sweet, but very interesting. I like how the vampire here is very coy about how she got her fangs; they are most likely caps. We’ve discussed in another post how dentists do not often perform teeth filing to make fangs; her fangs are longer than natural teeth, which is why they are likely fake.

When asked how she was turned, she was very candid, and did describe how the turning process is specific to culture; in different cultures or vampire communities, there are different transformation rituals or processes.

Julie Plec is pretty much my hero; not only does she give me hope personally, as one of the bigger women in showbiz, whose success is legendary. She has The Tomorrow People, previously, nd now The Vampire Diaries, The Originals and a new show in development –Cordon. She’s a busy lady, and is constantly doing new stuff. 

And now she’s a director too; it almost seems like amateur hour on The Vampire Diaries lately, –Ian Somerhalder, Paul Wesley, and now Julie Plec, have all directed episodes of the show. I wonder when Nina Dobrev is going to direct one? Will anyone else get a shot? I think there should be a celebrity director every month or show, just to see who gets the job done best…

How ‘What We Do in the Shadows’ spins a faux-doc about bloodsuckers into comic gold

 So there’s a ton of reviews and coverage on the movie What We Do in the Shadows –and for good reason. The men behind it are hilarious, and have lots of experience what with their Flight of the Conchord pedigree, and the various extracurricular music stuff they’ve done too. 

So the vampires: Viago is the uptight one, lots of apartment meetings and “serious talks” –come from Viago. Vlad is the ladykiller, Deacon is the young, douchebag vampire, –seems very True Blood/Twilight, and Petyr is the throwback to the days of Nosferatu. He’s old fashioned, keeps to himself, and looks like a nightmare. But we love them all, and can’t wait to see them on the big screen!

“With Ahn Jae Hyun and Gu Hye Sun currently starring in Blood and webtoons Orange Marmalade and The Scholar Who Walks The Night slated for drama adaptions [sic]…”

There are a lot of great Korean shows coming out soon; Blood is coming soon, featuring new vampires, new stories, and new stories about vampires trying to make it in a hospital. I have said it before, and I’ll say it again; Asian vampires are hot, and totally not what we’re used to seeing here in the United States. So seriously, if you get the chance to watch supernatural K-drama, you should.

Second: Blood isn’t the only vampire show coming out. And out of 11 huge choices for vampires, I’ll go over my favorites. Han Ga In; she’s beautiful, and totally natural looking; definitely needs to be in -something. My male favorite, is Lee Hyun Woo; he’s way less androgynous than the other guys, and would make a terrific vampire. Who are your favorites from the list?

“Hold onto your fangs, The Vampire Diaries and The Originals fans, because we’ve got some major crossover scoop…”

This is going to sound terrible, but the biggest news I got from watching this video, was that Julie Plec is fat; oh I don’t mean it in a nasty way. I too, am a big girl, and personally, I think that Julie Plec being a big lady, gives the rest of us big bitches hope for the future: your life can be awesome and you can be cool and classy, even if your ass is huge. I’m really impressed with Julie Plec, actually; she looks like a way more real person. I always had some skinny doofus in mind, but Plec is way cooler than I thought.

So, watch the video: basically, a flashback scenario is introduced on The Originals in which Nina Dobrev will be appearing as the first doppelganger, –that is, the first in the Petrova line to be identical to Amara, the first immortal woman: Tatia. Tatia’s blood is used by Esther Mikaelson to turn her sons into vampires. Then Elijah Mikaelson kills Tatia; there’s a scene coming up that will explain more of the finer details. Check out the video for more exclusive information on the upcoming crossover episode!

According to the video in the source, vampires have long been lied about; not all vampires wear capes… unless it’s for looking floofy when they fly. Vampires are also immune to garlic and holy water; they also can turn into any animal, but it will still have their face. Even dolphins, orangutans, and bears… or turtles. Oh… and vampires love Evanescence, but I saw that coming.

How easy it to become a vampire? Super easy, but they don’t want to make you a vampire, which makes sense. Vampires don’t like Bibles, crucifixes, but virgins are delicious. Oh, and 1 in 3 vampires have a big d*ck. Oh my. Only 1 in 3?

“The JJJ Book Club can not stop reading books — and it’s the most wonderful problem to have…”

The author of the Vampire Academy series has finally added another book to her long list of vampire fiction and romance contributions. I’m pitifully behind on my reading, but in my defense, a lot of books seem so similar nowadays. But I have read some of the Richelle Mead series’ and I really like them. And then again, for arguments’ sake, I’m a bit too old to identify with a bunch of high school girls.

This series is a little different, and deal instead with two clashing cultures: the Alchemists and the Moroi. Alas, this is the very last book in the series. Does that mean there will be more? I hope so; Mead’s universe of vampires and secret societies is incredibly intricate and there aren’t just vampires and humans; there are organizations as well as different species. If you haven’t tried any of the stories, you should. You’re totally missing out on one of the more unique and original vampire fiction authors out there right now.

Newly engaged Hollywood couple Ian Somerhalder and Nikki Reed are preparing for their 2015 wedding and are currently facing the awkward dilemma of whether to invite Somerhalder’s ex, Nina Dobrev to the occasion.

Depends on whether or not Nikki Reed invites her to the wedding. You know what it really comes down to, is that we just don’t want to see this couple tie the knot. I can admit that, so can most of you. We want this fairy tale of Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev to work out, because we’ve been waiting so long to see them work it out in character. But the fact remains that for some reason, they just couldn’t make it work as a couple.

It’s sad, but we should probably all just grow up and stop wishing for Nikki Reed to step under a falling piano. So do you think Nina should be at the wedding? I don’t, –would you invite your fiance’s ex? The answer is hell no, at least from me. I’m the jealous type.

“Vampire Blood Valentines Day Necklace…”

I love this necklace; oh, and by chance, I’m actually listening to Still Lovin’ You, by the Scorpions right now, and it’s totally apropos. The necklace is a perfect way to say, “Babe, I am so sorry I screwed up/forgot/wasn’t here on Valentine’s Day,” and if you missed the cue, yeah, you’d probably get laid for this gift. It’s one of a kind, –but! there are some matching earrings that would work too.

This jewelry designer actually has a lot of gorgeous vampire themed pieces, and as I sit here, trying to decide whether to be bouncy or wistful while I write today, I am seriously urging someone to buy this ASAP –there is only one in stock! Sparkly vampire blood: this could totally be the blood of Edward Cullen, or any Twilight vampire really. Sexy.

“Well look at this cute little bloodsucker!”

I love horror toys; I used to have one of the best toys of all time; a Living Dead Doll that went by the name of Flamingo. It was a random gift from my boss, Mr. Vampires.com, and I believe the backstory on her was that she overdosed on psychedelic mushrooms. I can’t remember if I made that up, or if she came with it. Anyway, sadly, she “died” for the second and final time, in a house fire. 

I don’t think anyone can possibly replace Flamingo, I loved her dearly, but if I was going to ever get her a partner in crime? This little guy would do it. Funko is releasing Nosferatu for a limited time this summer, and I want one! And eventually, I plan to round out my collection dolls with a few more living dead girls. Yea. I collect dolls. U mad bro? Anyway, you should totally get one, they’re too cute to be allowed to walk freely on the earth…

Pulpy Fiction: The Blood Soaked Tales of Dracula Prince of Darkness: Book II by R.

New Classical Bloody Tales of Dracula, Prince of Darkness. A fantastic retelling of a classic retold as it should be, bloody & gory. Book 2.

Okay, at first, I saw this post and I was going to pass it by and not bring it to y’alls attention. But! Then I saw one of this guy’s books on the left, titled The Whore of Babylon, with Hillary Clinton on the cover, with glowing red eyes, and I was like, oh no, this guy is deffo worth reading. So the most important thing I can tell you, –pulp fiction is not just a movie, it’s a real thing, and this is pulpy, raunchy, Marquis de Sade type stuff. 

There is a certain amount of irony here though, if you think about it: when Stoker wrote Dracula, it wasn’t exactly considered appropriate reading material, –the same reception the Marquis received when he wrote his gruesome tales of necrophilia and violent sexual fantasy. This is the evolution of unacceptable reading, –and for 99 cents, you too can read something that you probably shouldn’t.

“Poor, poor Caroline (Candice Accola)…”

You know, it kind of pisses me off that everyone seems to be focused on the big “Steroline” (gag me on that term please) kiss, when her mom just died. Dude. Even E! online seems to think that as Caroline goes through this life-changing event, this massive tragedy in her young life, all she’s thinking about is kissing Stefan. 

Somehow, I doubt making out with a hot guy is high on her list of priorities right now. Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure it’s definitely in the back of her mind, but I think the big focus is probably on her mom’s death right now. And Liz Forbes isn’t coming back; the “Other Side” is closed for business. I really hope the show is a little more sensitive than its fans. If your mom died right after you made out with your crush… would you be thinking about making out with him during her funeral?

Hollywood Vampires: Johnny Depp, Alice Cooper, Joe Perry Combine Their Powers and Become Epic! http://www.vampires.com/hollywood-vampires-johnny-depp-alice-cooper-joe-perry-combine-their-powers-and-become-epic/ http://www.vampires.com/hollywood-vampires-johnny-depp-alice-cooper-joe-perry-combine-their-powers-and-become-epic/#comments Wed, 18 Feb 2015 20:48:01 +0000 http://www.scoop.it/t/vampires-by-darkness-com/p/4037488371/2015/02/18/hollywood-vampires-johnny-depp-alice-cooper-joe-perry-combine-their-powers-and-become-epic “The rockers, named after the infamous drinking club, have lined up a main stage gig at September’s Rock in Rio fest in Brazil…” I know it’s terrible dudes, but I keep thinking of that cartoon, Captain Planet –you know, “When your powers combine… I am Captain Planet!” So when Alice Cooper, Johnny Depp, and Joe Perry got...

“The rockers, named after the infamous drinking club, have lined up a main stage gig at September’s Rock in Rio fest in Brazil…”

I know it’s terrible dudes, but I keep thinking of that cartoon, Captain Planet –you know, “When your powers combine… I am Captain Planet!” So when Alice Cooper, Johnny Depp, and Joe Perry got together, did they combine their powers with rings, like Johnny Depp got up and shouted, “Money!”, Alice Cooper shouts, “Talent!” and then Joe Perry shouts “Luck!” and then Phil Spector shimmers into existence with a fountain pen and a stack of paperwork, and shouts back, “I didn’t kill my girlfriend! Want a record deal?!”

The whole “Supergroup” thing would sound like a publicity stunt to me if these guys weren’t known for being like, notoriously mellow. Johnny Depp could film himself taking a shit and it would make millions, and Alice Cooper could sing a song about it, and have the same results. Joe Perry could play bass for Johnny Depp’s farts, and the whole project would make music video history. So yeah. These guys are probably getting together out of love for the music, and it’s hard to be anything but cool with that. I look forward to the rise of Hollywood Vampires.
