vampire games, vampire news, and real vampires

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…

Big-Ass Ouija Board

So does a giant Ouija board conjure up giant ghosts? Entities and spirits comparable in scale to the Staypuft Marshmallow Man? Or like Godzilla in GODZILLA, MOTHRA, KING GHIDORA: GIANT MONSTERS ALL OUT ATTACK (the title is so much more fun when translated into English) wherein the world’s most recognizable kaiju was a spiritual monster…

Christian Bale as Dracula?

That’s the rumor, courtesy of the NATIONAL ENQUIRER, which, if you are at all savvy about, well, anything, should tip you off that the rumor isn’t true. The ENQUIRER and similar tabloid rags make their bread and butter by shilling lies. (Apparently people like to read lies, even knowing that they are lies, as they…

POWERS OF DARKNESS: An Alternate Version of DRACULA

I received my review copy of POWERS OF DARKNESS in the mail yesterday, and I’m downright giddy with anticipation to start reading it. It’s DRACULA. Like, it’s OFFICIALLY the story of Dracula, as told by Bram Stoker himself—but it also isn’t. How can that be? A far better question is, how could an alternate version…

Review: UNDERWORLD: BLOOD WARS

I’ve been giving it some thought, trying to figure out at exactly what point the UNDERWORLD movie series lost my interest, and why. The first question is easily answered: after the second film in the series. As for the other question, WHY I stopped caring about the films, that one is tougher to explain. I…

The Music of CASTLEVANIA 2

Remember CASTLEVANIA, the Nintendo game? I remember it, but I confess that I never played it. For whatever reason, when I’d make my weekly visit to the video rental store to pick up a trio of VHS tapes and couple of Nintendo games—yes, kiddies, this was how it was done back in the day—I’d never…

A Concise History of the Ouija

You’ve all heard about the Spiritualism craze of the Victorian era, right? Seances and table-tipping and such were all the rage. Tilting tables or listening for knocking sounds from ghosts could get rather hectic, though, and some enterprising sorts devised a way to simplify things, both for the spirits and those still on the living…
