vampire games, vampire news, and real vampires



Seems like I was just reporting on the rumor that THE STRAIN was going to end after this current season. Seems that way ‘cause I WAS just reporting on it. Now, before my keypads have even cooled off from my debunking of said rumor, here comes news that the hit FX series has been renewed…

THE STRAIN cancelled?

Because not every online surfer has learned yet how to differentiate between legitimate news sites on the Internet and those of the other variety—think a standard newspaper as opposed to the NATIONAL ENQUIRER as an analogy—and because I’ve been seeing this one circulated and it’s already causing fans to panic. This site and this article…

Count Chocula at Starbucks

Did you know Starbucks had a “secret menu?” I didn’t, but then I’ve never been to Starbucks. Oh, I’ve been in one before, and driven through their drive-through, but always in the company of someone else. I don’t drink coffee, no matter in what ways it is spiffed up. I may have to make an…

A Bald Bram

I’ve reported on the Bram Stoker bronze bust project several times on this site in the past, and I’ve made my own small contribution to making the project a reality. (Have you? If not, it isn’t too late. Just click on the source link below and be as generous as you wanna be.) Now I…

Ruminations on THE STRAIN Season Three Episode Five

I do wonder that no one has noticed (or mentioned) before now that one (or more) of the Ancients is missing. Now we know that one is buried alive in a silver and lead sarcophagus somewhere in Egypt. I love the connection to the ancient land of the Pharaohs. I wonder if we’ll ever get…

Jack the Ripper: An Unholy Trinity?

Jack the Ripper has fought Dracula (And Captain Kirk! But that’s beside the point.) and has been accused of being a vampire. I figure it’s safe to feature ol’ Saucy Jack here on this site, then. He more than qualifies for inclusion. Sometimes I have to stretch a bit to make a topic, um, topical,…

Clowns Abound

Man, this clown thing just won’t go away. Much the opposite, in fact; it seems to be growing. I suspect it is a sociological thing. There is no “great clown conspiracy.” The Internet makes it all possible. People read about the clown sightings that are scaring folks in some other state and decide to stage…

THE STRAIN Asks Some Tough Questions

In case you haven’t been watching THE STRAIN—and why are you even on this site if you haven’t been?—a new and altogether illegal program has been initiated by the authorities in which people are arrested without ever being charged, then instead of being locked up they are are conscripted into duty as vampire hunters by…

The search for BUDAPEST

You’ve all been there, I bet. It’s gotten a lot easier, sure. Today you can be out somewhere and hear a song playing, and hold up your cellphone and Siri or Google will identify it for you. Before such technological indulgences, folks had to struggle. You had to listen, hoping to hear the song again…

Next Week on…THE STRAIN

That’s Carlton Cuse who does the voice-overs for the promos, isn’t it? The guy who says, “Previously on…THE STRAIN…” It must be cool to have such a rich, gravely voice. Myself, I have the perfect voice for writing. You’ve heard the expression “A face for radio,” right? It’s like that. My words sound better read…

Creepy Clowns, State by State

No, they aren’t vampires, but these recent creepy clown sightings are big news right now, and scary clowns don’t have their own website, so I do hope the purists will indulge me as I continue coverage of the phenomenon here, on this site. Besides, the clown COULD be a vampire. It does seem to possess…

GREASE: Were they dead the whole time?

I don’t usually pay any attention to fan theories, as they are wrong 99% of the time and irrelevant 99.5% of the time. I typically pay even less attention to musicals, both those of the stage variety and those that end up turned into movies. The few that I love are all Horror-themed, PHANTOM OF…
