We here at Vampires.Com offer details of what we hope to see regarding our favorite subject in the coming new year! In no particular order…
More vampire horror!
A more classical feral vampire, like those in 30 Days of Night featuring the vampire with ferocious bloodlust. It’s not about the gore but the characterization of the vampire as actual predators. Let Me In did this brilliantly.
Loved Stake Land, even though the vampires were more of a zombie-vampire hybrid. But what about a world where vampires actually took over? Like I Am Legend (the novel) or the last entry in The Strain trilogy.
Not Another Remake!
Okay, a few get it right. But more often filmmakers leave old fans dissatisfied and new fans unenthusiastic. Let us see folks do something interesting and new, or at least adapt something that hasn’t been done before!
A New Vampire Series!
A successor line of books in the “vein” of Twilight or perhaps Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles. Why not another saga, another fascinating story that requires many books to tell, another set of characters to grab the attention the way Katniss Everdeen and Harry Potter did–but with fangs?
Can True Blood please calm down?
This might not prove possible. Bill Compton has turned into some kind of demon blood god, while the whole world knows there are things others than vampires, a bunch of fairy children left in trust to the Sheriff, etc. How can the series not turn into WORLD WAR V? Dunno, but who really wants to see the show go there?
What do you want to see in the upcoming year?
