vampire games, vampire news, and real vampires

Re-celebrating Our Award!

Because gosh-darn it, we deserve it! Maybe it’s silly, but I was really proud when VAMPIRES.COM won first place in the “Top 25 Vampire Blogs and Websites for Vampire Lovers” from Feedspot. Considering I do most of the writing for this site, I think I’m entitled a teensy bit. How long has it been now…

Ed Wood’s “Quality Studio” Getting Facelifted

If I had my druthers, and if things were as they SHOULD be, the small sound studio at 5628 1/2 Santa Monica Boulevard, Los Angeles, where Ed Wood filmed the legendary and infamous PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE, would be restored to the exact condition it was in circa 1959 and designated as an historic…

My Night With The Spirits, Conclusion

There was so much information to impart that I broke this narrative up into several parts. It is necessary, or at the least highly recommended, that you read the first three parts before you proceed. You won’t know what’s going on otherwise. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. Okay, then. Do you all know what…

My Night With The Spirits, Part Three

This is the third article in a series. If you haven’t read the first two, you should do that first. It’ll make it easier to follow. Trust me. Jumping right back into it, then. I was upstairs in the office, which used to be the master bedroom when the House was a private residence, and…

My Night With The Spirits, Part Two

If you haven’t read the first in this series of articles, you need to go do that first. You back? Good. Moving on. I want to stress the professionalism of the folks with the Tuscaloosa Paranormal Research Group. They arrived exactly on time, with several vehicles and some $60,000 worth of high-tech equipment. (These folks…

My Night With The Spirits, Part One

Recently I had the opportunity to spend the night in a genuine haunted house with a team of professional paranormal investigators. My fear was that nothing would happen, that the team would make the long drive from Tuscaloosa, Alabama to Huntsville all for nothing. That’d there’d be nothing to show for it and I’d be…

What To Expect From DRACULA

Just to remind you all that there is supposed to be another DRACULA television series. It’s being developed by the guys who did the show SHERLOCK, so we know that they know how to do period drama. Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss are ready to begin writing the show’s first episode, so it’s still in…

Doug Jones To Star In WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS!

That’s the forthcoming television series, set to appear on FX, if’n you didn’t know. This news makes me feel a lot better about the show’s prospects. When I first heard that they were going to be turning the instant classic Horror/Comedy film into a TV series, I was equally excited and worried. The actors from…

The Zombie Cheese

I would call it the “vampire cheese” but there is no indication that blood has been used to preserve the cheese’s longevity. Then again, there is no indication that human brains were used, either, so I could just as easily call it “Vampire Cheese.” Yes, let us do that. This is the story of the…

Happy Bloody Valentine’s!

To quote from the Bluegrass-y remake of the song “99 Problems” by Hugo (as opposed to the original from Jay-Z, which I don’t care for) as used to great effect in the FRIGHT NIGHT remake. “If you’re havin’ girl problems, I feel bad for ya’ son. I got 99 problems, but a bitch ain’t one.”…

The Soska Sisters Want Your Blood

Sylvia and Jen Soska, the “Twisted Twins”, a pair of independent movie directors responsible for such modern classics as AMERICAN MARY, are “hosting” a blood drive. “It’s that magical time of year again where we Sisters Soska don’t just want to spill blood on the screen, but want YOU to bleed for us. Don’t worry,…

In defense of Kinski

Klaus Kinski was one of those actors who’d take any old part that came along. He’s sorta like Nicholas cage in that respect, except his talent eclipses Cage’s like a spotlight outshines a match. I have full confidence saying that Kinski took roles that were beneath his abilities both because so many who knew him…
