Vampire Boob Job

Have vampires always been able to control their physical forms? The vampire of the Middle Ages is always described as a smelly, moldering cadaver. The use of garlic was believed to repel bloodsuckers because its odor was as pungent as the Undead. It’s safe to say, then, that if vampires COULD control their physical forms…

Lights in Hospital Window Weren’t a Ghostly Christmas Tree—Or Were They?

Those spoilsports. They just HAD to investigate after a man named Mike Arbon posted video of a strange light in the window of the abandoned Tulane Medical center in New Orleans. The hospital never reopened after getting sacked by Hurricane Katrina a decade ago, so there shouldn’t be anybody inside to be shining any lights…

BUFFY Creator a Baby Killer?

According to some Twitter trolls, he is. After Planned Parenthood announced that Joss Whedon, creator of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER and director of the AVENGERS movies, would be matching donations people made to the organization, up to a total donation on his part of $100,000, the haters went ballistic, just as one would expect them…

You CAN keep a bad man down. But can you keep him from decomposing?

When we hear the term “Necrophilia,” we think of sickos who have a desire for sexual activity with a dead body, or have actually committed the act, or the act itself. There’s a broader definition of the word, though, that simply means an obsession with death and the dead. To an extent, all human beings,…

Say Hello to the Night – Farewell to a Lost Boy

When THE LOST BOYS came out in 1987, I thought it was “okay.” The most memorable thing about it, for me, was Jami Gertz. (I was in high school. Whatta you expect?) In the intervening years, though, the film gained a more prominent place in my affections, recalling as it did that magical time period…

The Alps and the Curse of Pilate

I love when I discover a new bit of folklore or esoterica, something with which I was unfamiliar, some story I’d never before heard. I was unfamiliar with the legend that Pontius Pilate, the Roman prelate who sentenced Jesus Christ to death by crucifixion, was a difficult guy to bury. Either the good earth refused…

Vampires and Terrorists, Part Two

Here’s a quote from one Rabie Shehada, a terrorist with the Islamic State (See my other article this week concerning terrorism on why one should never refer to this organization as “ISIS.”) in which he lays out with honest aplomb his motivations and the motivations of his comrades: “I swear we are a people who…

Vampires and Terrorists, Part One

Did you know there were such things as Jewish terrorists? I honestly can’t remember ever hearing of any. If I ever had then I’d forgotten it. The Jewish jihadists don’t make the news that often, it would seem. They do exist, though. The group Lehava, led by one Benzion Gopstein, is opposed to anything in…
