Old School Vampires….

Twillight was a good book series.  I can admit it.  I was hooked, I read them back to back.  Although, when I started to think about the old school vampire books and movies I’ve experienced; it made this stuff look soft.  It is my hope, that this generation doesn’t pass on these terrifying classics!!  I mean, come on, Bram Stokers-Dracula is the one of the scariest vampire stories ever!!  The images of Lucy struggling to resist Dracula, Dracula scaling the wall of his mansion at night, climbing like a creepy spider, and his waiting in his coffin, listening, as he is shipping himself across the ocean, those unnerving images are still burned in my mind.  The best part is that it’s up to your own imagination to produce these images!  Anybody that has been watching the Twillight movies, I’m sure would agree, that nothing beats the images your own mind is capable of producing.  Movies often come close; but no cigar.  I mentioned the movie, The Hunger in my last post and that movie is extremely creepy!  First of all, David Bowie is in it, that in itself should make it a cult classic.  It starts off with a couple hunting their prey, a girl to murder, and the female vampire is the lead in this movie.  This vampire stabs her victims jugular with her amulet, rendering them her love slaves until they start to decay, rapidly age, and find themselves stored in caskets in the attic.  Along comes Susan Surandons character and then the tables turn……Here is a link to the synopsis….http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0085701/synopsis this stuff is freakier than twillight….it should be prerequisite viewing….Oh! Don’t forget interview with a vampire….also a classic worth viewing…..
