Vampires who look and dress like fourteen-year-old budding goth kids because no one will ever believe that they’re actually vampires, no matter what they might see or hear.

Vampires wearing bad plastic fangs and tacky red contacts everywhere they go and telling people to call them things like “Lord Bloodfang McDarkness the Third” and “Salacia, Mistress of the Night”.

When you separate an entwined particle, and you move both parts away from the other, even on opposite ends of the universe if you alter or affect one, the other will be identically altered or affected. Spooky.

Autumnal vampire

samhaineveningpost:

Autumn is a favored season for many as is a metaphorical (sometimes literal) sucking dry of summer’s energy.

Your time has nearly passed, old man summer. New, terrifying beginnings are nearly here.

A few pictures from the opening scene to 1983’s “The Hunger” based on the novel of the same name by Whitley Streiber.  This is probably my favorite part of the movie with two predators seeking prey among the seething throngs of a darkened club to the strains of Bauhaus, then leading them back to their lair with the promise of physical pleasure before taking their blood in an act of savage betrayal. I just wish the rest of the movie had been as good.

 I particularly love that last image.

(Seriously, who could turn down an invitation to go home with David Bowie and Catherine Deneuve?)

very beautiful !

From what info I could find, this is the UK cover? Which means I’m going to have to get a UK edition, too, because I like this cover FAR better than the minimalist US cover design.

Oh how I’d love to find a replica of the ankh pendant from The Hunger. 

Not that there are many dagger-ended ankhs to be found. I did find the Ankh of the Dead from Alchemy Gothic floating around— is that the same one? Would gothiccharmschool know?

The Ankh of the Dead from Alchemy Gothic is similar in style, but not an exact replica. I do know someone who used to make much more accurate replicas out of sterling silver (waaaaaay back in the day, early 90s), and he says he’s going to get back to producing them, but I’m waiting to hear back from him. 

(Yes, I still have mine, but this is one of those iconic pieces of jewelry that I really REALLY want to have a back-up of.)

Anne Rice's 'Vampire Chronicles' Takes Flight at Universal

theladylovesmonsters:

YOU GUYS.

According to Variety, Universal Pictures has acquired the production rights to multiple books in Anne Rice’s beloved Vampire Chronicles series, apparently including but not limited to The Vampire Lestat.

The first screenplay they mention within the article is an adaptation of Tale of the Body Thief, which you’ll remember is actually written by Anne’s son Christopher Rice.

The article mentions Interview with a Vampire and the latest book in the series, Prince Lestat, which raises the question of a remake of the Brad Pitt/Tom Cruise version of Interview we’ve all come to adore in its be-wigged glory.

Imagine President Erica Huggins will oversee the films for Imagine Entertainment, Bobby Cohen will be executive producer, and Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman are onboard to produce. The latter two are also known for teaming up on multiple projects such as Transformers, Now You See Me, Cowboys and Aliens, and Star Trek Into Darkness which worries me just a little.

No word yet on any release dates, but since Body Thief sounds like maybe it’s already being worked on, that might be the first to go, I’m not sure.

So. Thoughts? Dreamcasts? General freaking out? Hit me up at my askbox and let me know.

WHAT? WHAAAAAT?

I would love to see a film version of The Vampire Lestat (as long as it was better than Queen of the Damned), but … aaaugh! I am wary of that production team, who would write the script, and dear G-D, so many possible casting pitfalls.

Some intriguing illustration work by artist Dave Flora for the 19th century vampire ‘penny-dreadful’ classic Varney The Vampyre, or The Feast Of Blood by James Malcolm Rhymer, a rip-roaring, blood-curdling 800+ page episodic novel sold in 109 individual installments for a penny each back in the 1840′s. Flora’s work is done in pen, pencil, brush and grayscale markers, and you can seem more (I think) at feastofblood.com.  We see lots of artists’ homages to Stoker’s Dracula, some few to LeFanu’s Carmilla, but it’s rare to see anyone attack this seminal piece of vampire literature. The artist calls these pieces ‘a labor of love’, and I’d call them very well done. 

Oooooh.
