It’s Christmas Eve.
And I am going to work on a vampire webseries.
Which sounds a little…awkward. But who wants life to be normal, eh?
A few days ago I started researching vampires. Most people don’t know that vampire legends actually started a lot like zombies are portrayed today. People died, were buried, then became animated again. Undead.
The Twilight saga has been beaten to death by now by too many haters, so I won’t add to it. As a general rule though, vampire tales today do NOT start with someone climbing out of a grave. Usually someone gets bitten.
And BAM! They’re attractive, powerful and immortal. And kinda melodramatic, too.
That’s fine. I don’t mind creative people using their creative talents to imagine vampires however they want to. I don’t even take offense at the sparkling.
But I’m ready for some mysterious, freaky, dangerous, demon-like vampire tales. Gritty, evil, soul-less. These things are like zombies, except not as crazed and far, far more frightening. They won’t come at you slowly, and they don’t have to kill you.
They just drain you, little by little, while you sleep.
And no matter how many times you shoot them or try to decapitate them, they always come back.
It’s stake time, baby.
