Top 13 Modern Vampire Films

Top-13-modern_vampire-30-days-of-night

30 Days of Night (2007) “There is no escape. No hope. Only hunger and pain.” Such is the state of the beast, and, fundamentally, vampires are beasts. Even Count Dracula, when he first appeared to the public, was a decrepit creature, not the suave nobleman we know and love today. 30 Days of Night is one of the best vampire films ever because it doesn’t flinch away from this fact. That arial shot showing the pure carnage of vampires vs. prey … Continue reading

My Myth of Vampires

HorrorNews.net-Thumbnail

My Myth of Vampires Vampires, everyone loves them, but what makes sense vs. the reality check. Stake in the heart: In the movies they are classically killed with a stake through the heart. When it comes right down to it, anything that gets a stake in the heart is going to die. This just makes sense and successful in most of the text and main stream movies. Holy water: Well if you are from the … Continue reading

As the title suggests there is a movie coming out that explores the problems that vampires suffer from. Sometimes Vampires can’t get their tooth to function. How embarrassing! The trailer sold me on this film though as it looks like a great horror/comedy which has to be the first time I have ever said that. This film is directed by Maclain Nelson and Matt Jespersen, stars Adam Johnson, Julie Gonzalo, Gary Cole (Office Space) and … Continue reading

Book Review: Biblio Vampiro – Author Robert Curran

Biblio_Vampiro

Biblio Vampiro: An Essential Guide to Vampires and, More Importantly, How to Avoid Them In my opinion one of the coolest things that I’ve seen with the increase in vampire visibility the last few years is the emergence of even cooler looking books published. Content aside, the publishers really go all out with all the visual treats and this edition titled “Biblio Vampiro” is no exception. Sporting a stylized cover reminiscent of old looking diaries, the … Continue reading

CWB Abbott & Costello Meet Frankenstein 1

I’ve recently completed a review for Mel Brooks’ 1995 film Dracula: Dead And Loving It, which takes a few lame swipes at Nosferatu (1922), Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992) and Horror Of Dracula (1958), but seldom veers off into the slew of newer vampire movies, including Interview With The Vampire (1994). The problem with this approach is that sending-up old vampire cliches is no great cinematic innovation. From Abbott And Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948) to Old … Continue reading
