Buffy’s Juliet Landau to Continue Drusilla’s Insanity in Print

As some may know, I am a hardcore Buffy the Vampire Slayer fangirl, and of the many wonderful characters on both Buffy and Angel, Drusilla is one of my absolute favorites. This vampire was deadly, heartbreaking and hilarious all at once. She was such an unique mixture of traits that you wouldn’t expect to work…

Why Lesbian Vampires?

For all practical purposes, the trope Vampire Lesbian emerged with Joseph Sheridan LeFanu’s novella “Carmilla.” Eventually, with the rise of a new medium–motion pictures–an adaptation of that story appeared. “Crypt of the Vampire” became one of the still-relatively few such. The trope, however, could be seen in “Dracula’s Daughter” as well as the eerie “Vampyr.”…

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Jenny Calendar

Jenny was the beautiful computer science teacher at Sunnydale High. She was brilliant and playfully cocky, making her an awesome teacher and a huge headache to Giles (who wasn’t a fan of her modern approach). Jenny, who was a techno-pagan and a member cyber-coven, helped out the Scooby Gang quite a bit in the first…

Bad Undead Boys

Honestly, I didn’t like the movie “The Lost Boys.” Yes, the music and cinematography were both fantastic, but like too many movies then and now the lead character was boring. Since he didn’t involve me, I didn’t care what happened to him. More, the story didn’t feel like a story. More like a series of…

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Darla

Darla was a mixed bag for me, one episode I absolutely hated the vampire bitch, then the next I loved her.  She may not have been hilarious compared to the others, but you’ve got to admit her timing and execution was excellent. But in all honesty, it wasn’t until she went to Angel’s spin-off show…

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Drusilla

Drusilla, my favorite Buffy character of all! She was insane, psychic, and a vampire – perfect! She was so wonderfully twisted and dark, yet still playful and childlike. In 1860 Angelus had became obsessed with the human Drusilla, a lovely young Catholic woman who lived with her parents and two sisters in London, England. Drusilla…

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Spike

The sexiest vampire of them all! Spike, also known as William the Bloody, got his nickname due to his fondness for torturing victims with railroad spikes. However, his William the Bloody nickname has much less glamorous origins – he had the name before his vampire days, as a result of his “bloody awful poetry.” William…

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Angel

Most know Angel as the vampire with a soul, others know him as one of the sexiest vampires on the show, the man that stole everyone’s heart when he came on screen, not just Buffy’s. The human Angel, known then as Liam, was born in 1727 in Ireland. In 1753, it was Darla that turned…
