Spreadin’ the Love for Horror Décor

It will come as no surprise to my frequent readers that I love me some kitsch. Particularly cute kitsch. Last week I posted about some Horror-themed bath bombs that would allow a bather to luxuriate in a tub of bloody red, scented water, ala Elizabeth Bathory. Before that, it was monster movie-themed Pop-tarts. (These last…

Frozen Dead Awaits Reanimation

Y’all forgive me for using an article from Fox “News” as a springboard. I promise you, if the article had anything to do with current affairs or politics, I’d pass it up, or at least make sure that I labeled it as a probable piece of fiction before citing it. It doesn’t, though. This is…

Ring(er)s

It’s funny how a series can be completely played out, like the last thing in the world you want is another sequel, but you wait long enough and a sequel seems like a fine idea. The idea is fresh again, vibrant. That’s how it is with THE RING franchise. When they made the original sequel—no,…

Bloody Good Pancakes

This time of year, and moreso as we get closer to the amping up of Mardi Gras and the beginning of Lent, you’ll be seeing and hearing a lot about pancakes. Kiwanis clubs will be hosting all-you-can-eat pancake dinners, churches will be making pancakes on Shrove Tuesday (the day before Ash Wednesday, for those of…

Take a Bath(ory)

I always hated Valentine’s Day. Many a year I spent single, and Valentine’s was like a slap in the face, the rubbing of some salt into the wound. It was a cruel day. Beyond this, I felt that it was a wholly manufactured holiday, pure commercialism, a day when people—well, men, were forced to spend…

Keepin’ It Wild

Given the length of time that Romania suffered under a Communist dictatorship, it’s a wee bit miraculous that it retained so much of its natural beauty. It didn’t suffer the rampant, unrestricted pollution common to Communist regimes, not to the extent that other Commie countries have, to the extent that, say, China, still does. Romania…

The PSYCHO House

It’s one of the world’s most recognizable architectural wonders. I’d daresay more people would recognize it than would the Taj Mahal. It’s the home of Norman Bates from the film PSYCHO, sitting alongside (in the movie) the equally legendary but not as immediately recognizable Bates Motel. The House, constructed on the Universal Studios backlot, was…

Review: STAR TREK BEYOND

No, you haven’t accidentally clicked on the wrong link. This is VAMPIRES.COM and I am reviewing the latest STAR TREK movie. If you’ve seen it—which I only did recently, having missed it in theaters during its run last summer, not out of a lack of desire to see it but due to my being extremely…

Vampiric Breakfast

I love Pop-tarts. I can’t really have them anymore—I mean, I COULD; there’s no law preventing it or anything; it’s just that I SHOULDN’T, being diabetic—but back in the day I could polish off an entire box of ‘em, easy. The breakfast of champions! Or of sweets-loving Horror geeks. Take your pick. (I do want…

LOST BOYS TV Series – Update

Details about the forthcoming THE LOST BOYS television series are starting to leak out like trickling blood from a vampiric love nip. Depending on one’s point of view, these may or may not satisfy. TV producer Rob Thomas (not the same guy who serves as frontman for the pre-Emo band MATCHBOX 20) is now on…

Vampire Bats Biting Humans

This is hardly news. We already knew that vampire bats bit people, though rarely. There was no definitive PROOF of it, though, nothing concrete and airtight, outside personal testimonies from people who claimed to be victims, and such accounts can’t be verified and thus must remain dubious in the big unblinking communal eye of Science,…

Revisiting the “Classics”: Saturday the 14th

There’s a decent chance you’ve never heard of this movie. It didn’t make a big splash when it came out in the early 80s, and it hasn’t made much of mark in the years since. It can hardly be called a cult classic, unless the cult in question is a teeny tiny one. (I think…
