Unfortunately for them, that particular depraved killer was working as apprentice to a creature far more malevolent—the legendary Spring-heeled Jack. He’s just hit town. He hasn’t forgotten what the Leandros brothers did to his murderous protégé. He hasn’t forgotten what they owe him. And now they are going to pay…and pay…and pay.…

That’s how me and Jock got to setting out freeing the world of ’em, using his bag o’ wooden stakes and special bottles of whisky. Course, I knowed that vampires didn’t exist, not when I stopped and done some thinking. And I knowed Jock had mental wossnames, what with his son falling off that roof and him reckoning them immigrants pushed him. It’s just that I didn’t get much time for thinking, not with the coppers on our arse. Jock were off… and me with him.

    I Vampire, and Vampire Hunter D look cool, but I’m sick of all this vampire romance bullshit. They should stay in horror.

      To each their own :) I think it depends on the type of vampire.

        Well, I guess you’re right, I suppose I shouldn’t be knocking on anyone who likes vampire romance. Never meant to make anyoene feel bad. I just think that vampires feeding on willing doners waters down the whole vampire thing

          It’s ok, everyone is welcome to their opinion :) I still think it depends on the vampire. Take Ward’s vampires for example, they aren’t reanimated corpses that feed on and kill innocents. They are an actual species. One can’t be made a vampire, they are born one. There are a lot of different types of vampires, some fit the horror genre and some don’t. I don’t think vampires have to be one thing. :)
