I've thought that all along. This current trend of the romantic, sexy
vampire is something I've never understood. Bring back Max

The leak was first sprung big-time, I think, by Langella and Badham in
'79(?) ...whose favorable critics made much of the "new" emphasis on
the vampire's concupiscent cachet. And, from there, Barbara Cartland
was only one twin bed over. Nowadays, until and unless there's some
unforeseen resurrection of "hard" supernatural antique fiction, I
regret that Dracula may have had his last whiff of coffin mold...

Something to do with teenage girls of all ages and sexes, except that
it seems to be a reaction against sex--or sexual objectivity as
pandered by popular culture. Like that dormant Michael Jackson thing,
brought back to life by his death: "He IS that into you, and he
doesn't want to knock you up right away, or at all."

(Dunno about that last bit, since vampires not looking like Shreck or
Lugosi activate my remote. Do modern vampires breed?)

Even Ann Rice, who has done her bit over the past 35 years to glam
vampires up (although mostly in a gay way: kinda funny how in her
books turning into the UnDead turns one into a cocksucker as well as
bloodsucker, but I digress) paid homage to the original in
"Interview..." and at least acknowledged the existence of that type of
vampire as a subspecies of the breed. Unfortunately, IIRC, in the film
version Louis's search for more of his kind in central Europe and
first finding the Count Orloff variety did not make in to the screen.

A teenage girl wants to feel that sex, although merely Nature's chore
for some, is for her literally a matter of life and death. (Cf. 'la
petite mort'.) As for vampire rugrats... only on 'Buffy', afaik.

done! check out "Let the Right One In." I advise getting the swedish
version rather than waiting for american remake. I saw the dubbed
version, which was good. I hear the subtitled version is rather badly
subtitled.

30 Days of Night, while not close enough to the comics for my liking,
also avoids the sexy sparkly vampire crap, and many of the vampires
are indeed rat-like!

Oh, you don't? Okay: It dates back to a novel written by John William
Polidori who was a contemporary of Lord Byron--
And where he got the idea to portray "Lord Ruthven" as horny amoral

What about "Shadow of the Vampire"? Excellent movie.

John Malkovich (as F.W.Murnau): "Why him, you monster? Why not the... script
girl?"
Willem Dafoe (as Max Schreck): "Oh. The script girl. I'll eat her later."

I watched Twilight and it struck me that this vampire:

1. Isn't dead/undead
2. Doesn't appear to suck anybody's blood
3. Walks around mostly by day

Why did they even make him a vampire at all?


I've been watching the old 1966 Dark Shadows on DVD, the part of the
story where Barnabas Collins enslaves Maggie Evans. There is a nice
creepy vampire.

Well yeah but that's every movie since "Rebel Without a Cause".

...

I JUST HAD A GREAT IDEA FOR A SUBGENIUS MOVIE! It can star Doc
Martian!


I think another point of the vampire as a boyfriend though is that
he's that DANGEROUS boyfriend that you know you should stay away from
but secretly it's his very dangerousness that revs your motorboat.

So he's totally dangerous IN THEORY. But ... SHE CHANGES HIM!


Maybe Doc Martian wouldn't work for the SubGenius version of this
movie after all. I don't think you could change him into much of
anything but a walrus.

I am reminded by the KING OF THE HILL episode where Bill was

the blade movies are also decent at playing up the non-sexy vampire
thing. There are a couple sexy vamps in the first one, but most of
the vamps in it are old businessmen, and in the sequels the vampires
get more monstrous with unhingeable jaws and tentacles etc.

the whole sexy-vampire thing is all Bram Stoker's fault. ever since
he made Dracula a ladies' man, someone's come along wanting explore
the vampire-as-sex-object angle more than the vampire-as-undead-
monster angle. anne rice, joss whedon, stephenie meyer, all just
going down the path Bram Stoker pointed out to them, each one going a
little farther than the last.

i would say that zombies are free from this sexifying, but that would
be a lie. Naked Ape has a couple music videos with dancing zombie
women (carwash-girls and a pole dancer!), a google of "Zombie pinups"
will produce results, and there;s the new horror movie out Deadgirl,
in which two teenage guys find a zombie woman strapped to a table in
the basement of an abandoned building and keep her as a sex toy.

as for werewolves, google "yiffing".

I guess it goes to show, one man's flesh-eating monster is another
man's dream girl.

Perhaps one of his descendants. In this, simply knowing a romantic,
sexy woman is taboo.

Vampires today can be identifiably embraced for hedonistic persuasions
much as do punked apocalyptic movie scenarios to negate politics for

I actually don't see what the big deal is. It's a different take on
vampires. Are we so close-minded to different experiences that all
vampires must be alike? What about the zombies that run in 28 days
later? Are they ruining zombies for everyone? Twilight isn't a vampire
horror movie, it's a vampire romance movie with interspecies sexual
tension. I liken the story to what it would be like if I fell in love
with a delicious taco. It would be so hard not to eat this sexy,
talking taco. I would love this taco, and pet it, and marry it, and
name him George. But it would be really hard not to eat it. And
there's the story. Nothing to do with the horror angle, really.

Not a great movie, but not terrible either. I tend to think it is not
worthy of either the denouncement OR the praise that it receives.

If you want someone to blame, blame Bella Legosi.

In fact, Vampire legends have been "sexy" ever since, and the oevre
lends itself to this fey/sexy thing. Sorry guys, but Vampires are not
Butch. I don't know where you guys get the idea that the whole vampire
thing ever "went away from" being manly. It's NOT MANLY AND IT AIN'T

So you have no strong feelings one way or another about the movie, and
don't understand why other people would.

I can remember the first time I had to go to sleep. Mom said, "Steven, time to go to sleep." I said, "But I don't know how." She said, "It's real easy. Just go down to the end of tired and hang a left." So I went down to the end of tired, and just out of curiosity I hung a right. My mother was there, and she said "I thought I told you to go to sleep."

As well what precisely defines CDP for so great a standout in
assessing mission directives, making impromptu judgment calls, and
positively identifying advantage of utility from a full field of
resources available. One of the few born true predators, whose
reputations are only preceded by a regard given their innate
instinctual prowess.

Good points. Twilight sucks (pun or nopun), I wouldn't watch that fil if
you made me. And then of course there are hundreds of straight to dvd
"sexy Vampire" flicks out there that aren't worth using as a paper
weight.
What was the last good Vamp flick? Bram Stokers? Sure they made Oldman
seem "sexy" at times, but he changed to a hideous creature quite often.
That was a good movie, without question. The one with Willam Defoe and
John Malkovich, that was good to.

Another neglected art house/indie vampire flick from Abel Ferrara, "The
Addiction":

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0112288/

Vampirism as metaphor for heroin addiction. I really like Lily Taylor, and
Christopher Walken is great as the experienced vampire (with a whiff of Bill
Burroughs in his performance.)

Black and white. NetFlix did not have it in their catalog when I last
checked.

Also, "Tsui Hark's Vampire Hunters". Chinese hopping vampires vs. Shaolin
monks. Some zombie wrangling.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0303970/

I just found a copy for $2. OTAY!

That looks interesting. I looked on Amazon.com, it was never released
on DVD. I might grab a copy on VHS.


This is another quirky vampire movie I liked a lot, I didn't remember
it until you mentioned that one:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0110620/

It's a weird take with a complicated mix of different styles. There
are comedic parts, like Peter Fonda who plays a kook vampire-hunter,
only in the movie all of his kook beliefs are true. Partly it's very
erotic, the main Vampire is very hot and sex and vampirism are
intertwined. David Lynch has a tiny cameo.

That's been in my queue forever. I was blowing it off because I got a little
turned off to Euro-horror after "Funny Games".

Moving it up.

BTW, I posted my comment on my blog here, and some more discussion has
ensued. Apparently twilight is evil because it's mormon antifeminist
propaganda:

Have you checked out Zombie Strippers (with Jenna Jameson) yet? I'd
love to get your take on it, as it seems up your alley.

Can we please have this discussion without making sweeping generalizations
