Re: Anybody else sick of Vampires?

I'm a huge fan of Anne Rice's vampire books. My kind of vampire story is like that - struggling with being not-human, while living in the human world. Slightly erotic, but mortals aren't really attractive to vampires at all. I really enjoyed the nightmarish aspect of Copolla's movie, too.

This batch of romantic vampires - yuck. I watched 10 minutes of Vampire Diaries and was sick of it. This teen angst stuff really isn't interesting to me, although it is clearly a ticket seller! The latest Harry Potter movie seemed to have the same mopey stuff in it - I couldn't stand that movie, either!

Zombies - I really don't get the point of them, other than people liking the gross out, body parts flying aspect. Not scary at all.

Vampires can be creepy - I remember the Stephen King book that scared me the most was Salem's Lot, for example.
