Vampires Should Be Evil

I encountered the Vampire tale first through the movies, staying up late Friday and Saturday nights watching Bela Lugosi, John Carradine and then Christopher Lee portray Dracula. The Count was the epitome of evil, his whole existence on this Earth one purpose, to feed and create more of his kind. Vampirism was like a plague,…

Valentine’s Day Sucks

Valentine’s Day is almost here, and for some, it’s a dreadful day. Cutesy couples hanging all over each other, radio stations playing love songs all day and virtually every TV channel showing one romantic comedy after the other – it’s a bit sickening. For those of you who do not want to spend their day…

Review of ‘Blade’ the Anime Series

After three successful Blade live-action movies and a short-lived live-action show you’d think this classic comic book character would be done, but oh no, now we have a Blade anime.

Recently “The Curse of the Mutants” was an arc that covered an attempt by vampires to take over the world, starting with mutants like the X-Men (figuring that super-powered vampires would make it easier to take over)….
