True Blood Season 4: Plot Synopsis for Ep. 1!

That’s the thing, we get so excited for our favorite shows to come back on air, and when they do show up, the first episode is almost always a HUGE tease.

The Vampire from the Being Human Remake… Meh?

Are Our Favorite Vampires Shows a Little Too PC?

Don’t get me wrong, I love The Vampire Diaries, and I love True Blood, but there’s something going on here that not a whole lot of people are talking about. There is a lot of play on the minorities in both shows. I have a list actually, of weird little facts about the two shows….

India is a fascinatingly diverse country, with thousands of different languages. Each place in India has its own culture, food, religion. And each place seems to have its own vampire myths. In the Godavari region they tell stories of a vampire called the chedipe. The word literally means “prostitute.” But the chedipe vampire is described…

The Infamous Montague Summers

Way back when science was beginning to beat out illogical superstition there was still a man that was well known for his occult knowledge. Montague Summers (1880-1947) was a semi-famous English cleric, Gothic scholar and at the time, the leading figure on the occult. Even though he spent nearly his whole life studying the supernatural,…
