Vampires in 2011

Now that it is 2012, perhaps it is time to take one last look back at the year that is gone? And the top vampire stories of those twelve months? Johnny Depp, Vampire! Quite apart from the fact that Johnny Depp is finally playing one of the Undead (it seems so odd that neither he…

Buffy Reboot Gets Staked Through the Heart, Fans Rejoice!

It was way back last year when we heard the horrifying news that Warner Bros. was going back to Sunnydale for a Buffy the Vampire Slayer remake.

Rebooting Buffy the Vampire Slayer

We all know that the vagaries of contracts and show business market means the iconic “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” is to be rebooted a second time.

See ‘The Lost Boys’ and ‘Buffy’ Stars in the Best Vampire Episode EVER!

Psych is one of my favorite shows and my love for it grew tenfold after this week’s episode, titled “This Episode Sucks,” which was all about vampires. If that’s not awesome enough, the episode had some fangtastic cameos – Corey Feldman (The Lost Boys), Kristy Swanson (Buffy the Vampire Slayer – the movie) and Tom…

‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ Now Available on Blu-ray

As the title above says, Buffy the Vampire Slayer is now on blu-ray, but unfortunately it’s not the wonderful show (that I am psychotically obsessed with), but the original Buffy movie. Yup, the 1992 Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie was just released on blu-ray and with it comes a few extra goodies for the fans.…

Your Favorite Vampires in Comic Form!

Every time I visit the local bookstore I head over to the wonderfully wonderful comic book section, turn into a little kid, and get lost in the magical world of comics. While scanning the section on my last trip I was surprised by how many vampire books, movies and TV shows have been adapted into…
