Remember a time when vampire movies featured real vampire villians. I’m talking about Lestat in “Interview with a vampire” and Blade.
Back then ‘normal’ vampires couldn’t walk during the day and garlic and holy water was still a deadly happen and none of them sparkled.
Modern day vamprire movies are now trying to dispel life long myths about vampires. And they do all this whilst looking super hot. So how the hell are we supposed to kill them now? I must admit I’m not a Twilight fan, Edward is sickly thin looking young man whom I cannot stand the sight of, I will however admit that team Jacob and the whole wolf pack is HOT. What I don’t get about Twilight is that they live in this small town because it almost never gets sun but even though there is a 100 percent cloud cover UV rays still penetrate through so technically they can’t go out during daylight??
Recently though I’ve decided to watch The Vampire Diaries and despite all the teen angst I’m currenlty enjoying it. So they might not be defenceless against holy water but hey at least there’s vervain. And ok there are a few characters I wish I could personally kill off but Damon makes it all worthwhile – double sigh. Although to me Damon will always be Boone Carlyle from Lost.
I think I might give Trueblood a chance while I’m waiting for my next Vampire Diaries fix cos I need something to tide me over. I like how each Vampire movie or series has conflicting information.
I’m quite ashamed of my Vamp addiction so please don’t judge. But here are some memorable quotes from Blade hopefully this will redeem me in the eyes of my readers.
Blade: Some motherf**kers are always trying to ice-skate uphill.
Quinn: I’m gonna be naughty! I’m gonna be a naughty vampire god!
