Blood Myths: Part 1

Vampires are best known for their insatiable love for blood. If you take a look at the ancient legends surrounding the undead, nearly all of them feature a bloodthirsty vampire. But, not every old myth about blood is also about vampires. Which is what brings you today’s post. Over at Werewolves.com I wrote about moon…

True Blood Season 3 Episode 12

Evil’s Going On Oh my friggin’ god. This is it. Finally. Sadly. Joyously. Orgasmically. Whatever. The season finale of True Blood. Holy shit, I am just beside myself with anticipation. Not to watch the show, I mean, I was, but more or less, just so excited to be here, and screaming the summary into your…

True Blood Season 3 Episode 11

Fresh Blood First off, the song that this episode is named after, Fresh Blood, by The Eels, is badass, –I’ve liked it since like, before it was cool, dude. Seriously! I did! Anyway, there’s one episode left in the series, and of course, they make us wait for two weeks before we get to see…

True Blood Season 3 Episode 10

I Smell a Rat Dun, dun, dun! Last night, it was the  big reveal. Sookie is a faery; no wings, just some ‘light’, –metaphorical or otherwise. Sookie thinks it’s lame, but Bill is dead serious when he tells her why that’s such a big deal in supernatural circles: because every ‘supe’ believes the Fae were…

Vampire Tarot

Tarot cards have been a part of the occult almost since they were created. Originally, the Tarot were playing cards used for games in France and Italy, but even playing cards have been used for divinatory purposes almost since their creation. As the centuries have passed, and anything to do with magic and divination was…

The Vampire Bats Are Attacking!

If you follow the news then you’ve heard ALL about this since everyone is going crazy over it – even vampire sites. The big bad news is that over 500 people have been bitten by rabid vampire bats in the Peruvian Amazon. My scientific theory for this sudden increase in attacks is that the bats…

True Blood Season 3 Episode 9

Everything is Broken About halfway through the episode, I was definitely wondering about this title; not everything seemed broken. But by the end of the episode, oh yeah, pretty much everything was FUBAR’d. The loss of Talbot pretty much pushed Russel Edgington completely over the edge. This episode didn’t have a lot of Bill and…

True Blood Season 3 Episode 8

Night on the Sun This episode is very busy, and we’re starting to see some climax that’s been building up for the last seven episodes, –and for all that the last episode didn’t deliver, we got maximum payoff for last night’s episode. We start up exactly where we left off, with Sookie screaming when she…

True Blood Season 1 Episode 7

Hitting the Ground This episode left me feeling a little less than satisfied, and even slightly disappointed in Allen Ball. Everything started out good; Sookie splatters Lorena, they all pile into Alcide’s cargo truck, and head off into the sunset. Except Bill almost kills Sookie. This isn’t the anti-climax, though. Everything is pretty exciting, up…

True Blood Season 1 Episode 6

I Got a Right to Sing the Blues Ain’t that the truth? Pretty much everyone sings the blues in this episode, aside from a few supporting cast members. Sookie gets stuck in Russell Edgington’s castle, along with Bill, and Tara, –and Eric, though he doesn’t reveal just how dire his situation is. Lorena also seems…

True (Blood) Love

Romance is part of every season, but it seems like everyone is coming down with the sickness; the whole cast of True Blood is… is… TWITTERPATED! And, no, for those of you who’re thinking that has something to do with ‘Twitter’ there’s something seriously wrong with you, queue Bambi on your Netflix. Anyway, love is…

Adaptations of Carmilla

For fans of the undead, a favorite topic of debate remains comparing the various film versions of “Dracula.” Even limiting oneself to those explicitly based upon Stoker’s novel, over a dozen versions exist from “Nosferatu” (original and remake) to both Universal versions in 1930, both adaptations that starred Christopher Lee, all three BBC Draculas, the…
