Re: Anybody else sick of Vampires?

I wrote in to SFX complaining about the poppets from Twilight being on the cover. Bloody pouty emo types!

That said, I'm surprised no one's thought of this before:

A Vampires Versus Zombies Movie!

Vampires chase Zombies because the fresher ones have blood, or maybe they like carrion too. The Zombies chase the Vampires because, undead or not, they still have braaaiinns.

Next year's Snakes On A Plane. You heard it hear first.

Re: Anybody else sick of Vampires?

Vampires would win. I don't think the zombies would realize how to kill the vamps.

Twilight was horrible, Vampires playing baseball and having trouble making dinner for a human? C'mon. If I lived for hundreds of years I would be better than those idiot Iron Chefs when comes to cooking and would have more interesting hobbies than playing baseball when bored.
You are so right about Twilight. I have endured many crappy movies, but Twilight truely made me suffer.

I do like vampires alot though. Not all vampire movies and tv shows are good though. I really miss the all out vampire afraid of the cross(holy symbol if you want to be multi-cultural), sunlight, etc. They've taken away all the cons of being a vampire in most shows. I'm more sensitive to sunlight than the tv vampires. So what you get is a super sexy, super strong, immortal guy that drinks blood. Why do they hesitate to make their girlfriends and friends vampires? There is no drawback to it.

^ Yes there is.

They're dead inside.

Hence the emo angst.

More than vampires I think there's way too many zombies or zombie-like creatures in media these days.
I dunno, zombies just need a different spin. I'm actually hoping someone runs with the idea of making a movie told exclusively from the point of view of 24 hour news. Imagine the zombie apocalypse told through CNN or Fox. If you wanted to do a comedy you could throw in some pundits with nutty conspiracy theories.
Or a disaster-movie, like Independence Day...

Oh, and:

Re: Anybody else sick of Vampires?

I like Vampires okay. Dracula, Dark Shadows, Night Stalker, Buffy are all classics. I'm not especially interested in the current crop, although True Blood looks interesting. But the so-called "emo" Vampire goes back at least to Barnabas Collins, though now it's just being marketed to Tweens.

Zombies are okay, too. I love Romero's Dead movies. It just makes me a little sad that the cannibalistic Romero type has become the default; I'd love to see some stories based on the traditional Voodoo/Simon Garth type.

But my favorite monsters have always been Werewolves, and there is a definite shortage of good Werewolf books and movies. I don't think there's been a good movie since American Werewolf In London. There was one on Sciffy a while back that had the Hercules guy in it that was doing pretty good until the awesomely bad ending. I'm really psyched about the upcoming House Of Wolfman Universal homage, but I don't know of any other projects to look forward to.

Re: Anybody else sick of Vampires?

It's one of those things that comes and goes every few years. It worked for Christopher Lee in those 1960s horror films, but of all the halloweeny/gothicy things are are done nowadays, I find vampires to be the most boring, and least inspired idea. Zombies are not far behind them. Red horned devils get the third place on my boring list. Skeletons fourth.

Apparitions are okay, but I think there is most mileage left for witches, classical Greek mythological creatures, and possessed/demonised beings. I fully endorse them this halloween.
