vampire games, vampire news, and real vampires

Scott Ian or Captain Blake?

I’m afraid I’m not a fan of Anthrax. The band, I mean, not the disease. Is anybody a fan of the disease, other than madmen bent on world conquest? Properly, I should say I am not a fan of the music of Anthrax. I don’t know the guys in the band personally. I do think…

Castle Slains And Castle Slains: Only One Of Them Might Have Been Castle Dracula

Slains Castle in Scotland MIGHT have inspired Bram Stoker to create Castle Dracula. We know he visited the area during the period when he was working on his famous novel DRACULA. The castle sure looks the part. I kinda like that there are several Castle Draculas. Three in the historical homeland of both the historical…

In Memoriam: Harry Anderson

As I sit typing this, I have just heard that actor Harry Anderson has died at the far too young age of 65. Details as to the cause of death haven’t yet been released–I expect those will emerge in the coming days–but it hardly matters for our present purposes, which is to pay tribute. It’s…

Somerhalder Cast In V-WARS

There’s this forthcoming series from Netflix entitled V-WARS. It will consist of ten episodes and be based on the comic book series, also called V-WARS, written by Jonathan Maberry. The new series will star one Ian Somerhalder, who previously starred in a show called THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, which aired on the CW, and spawned a…

The Man Hits Back

Last week I reported on the scheme to sell comic books stamped with the illegally-obtained blood of comics legend Stan “The Man” Lee. (It does make me wonder if this could be a new trend. In the future, will there be a thriving black market wherein “fans” can purchase bodily fluids from celebrities? I can…

Slender Man Crime Scene Photos Released

To start with, and completely off the main topic, I really wish I could convince the world to start calling the entity “Slenderman” instead of “Slender man.” That’s just the inner grammar nazi in me needling me, although admittedly this one comes down to a matter of personal preference more than grammatical exactitude. Calling him…

THE WALKING DEAD: Where Do We Go From Here?

They were touting it as constituting as much a “series finale” as a season finale. Turns out it wasn’t. I still wonder why they would have gone that route anyway, publicity-wise? Could it be the show’s producers, being aware of the fan grousing (How could they not be?) and the declining ratings, decided to play…

Elvira Comics On The Way, And A Giant Vampira Mask

I kinda hate to give Elvira publicity, after learning of the way in which she screwed over Vampira, but she is newsworthy as far as vampires go, so I’ll bite the bullet and do my job. I just don’t have to like it. There is a new Elvira, Mistress of the Dark comic book series…

Black Market for Stan Lee’s Blood

There was a headline guaranteed to snag my attention. A comic book store in Las Vegas was selling BLACK PANTHER comics autographed by none other than Stan “The Man” Lee, promising these autographs were each a “Hand-Stamped Signature of STAN LEE using Stan Lee’s Solvent DNA Ink.” Solvent DNA ink translates as blood. The comics…

LEGENDARY LOCATIONS: Dracula’s Castles

Yep, you read that right. Castles, plural. I caught the premiere episode of the new Josh Gates series LEGENDARY LOCATIONS. Gates is the same guy who hosts DESTINATION TRUTH on SyFy and EXPEDITION UNKNOWN on the Travel Channel. Both shows offer varying degrees of scientific validity and open-mindedness coupled with entertainment value, so I wasn’t…

The Undead RSS

Sounds like the name of a ship, doesn’t it? Well, it does to me. Just switch the last two words and then italicize them. Not that the program I’m writing on allows for italicizing. That’s why I always use all capital letters for titles, or for any word that I want to especially emphasize. There…

Where’s Stephen?

He’s all over this poster, actually. Artist Jordan Monsell created this work, entitled KING COUNTRY, which contains visual references to almost 200 Stephen King stories, novels, and movies. This could be fun, seeing how many we can identify. I spot two that guarantee a mention here on this site: The Night Flyer; you can identify…
