Who Are The Top 20 Vampires in Books?

22 July 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

Vampires have been and will always be a wonderful creature that runs through the pages of comic books, graphic novels and literary books, but these few stand out as some of the best of the lot. Of course choosing vampires in literature is always a daunting task, and as such, is entirely subjective.

1. Lestat from The Vampire Lestat by Anne Rice

Lestat de Lioncourt from Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles. “The Brat Prince” has helped form what many see as the template for how a vampire should be in modern day fiction. His boldness, enthusiasm, defiance and charm has made him the iconic vampire of the 20th and 21st century. You can begin to read his exploits in the first book of the Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice in ‘Interview With A Vampire‘.

2. Carmilla from The Dark Blue by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu

‘Dracula Untold’ Set Visit: This is Not Your Grandfather’s Dracula

15 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Long before Bram Stoker introduced readers to Count Dracula in 1897, vampire-like creatures have haunted folklore tales across the globe. Tales of soul-sucking demons and blood-thirsty supernatural creatures even terrified the Romans. The monsters evolved throughout the centuries, spiraling off into different mythologies, one of which took hold in the 18th and 19th centuries – as storytellers began to define the “vampire.” Since that time, the Dracula character has become synonymous with Vampire stories and, as a result, the evildoer has been depicted countless times on the big (and small) screen.

Bela Lugosi was the first actor to depict Dracula in a feature production, in Universal Pictures’ 1931 Dracula film, with over a dozen other performers portraying the character (across various adaptations) in the ...

'Dracula Untold': Luke Evans has his 'own fangs' - but can he kill as a leading man?

15 July 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If nothing else, Luke Evans has one distinct physical attribute that makes him the perfect choice to play Dracula. “I have my own fangs,” jokes the actor on the set of forthcoming origin actioner “Dracula Untold.” And he does – look at any photo where the “Fast & Furious 6” baddie is showing his teeth and you’ll notice his prominent canines immediately. Fortuitous? Certainly. But of course, his pearlies aren’t what bagged him the part. Being Luke Evans did. The Welsh actor has been such a ubiquitous big-screen presence over the last several years that it’s easy to forget that his first major Hollywood film, 2010’s “Clash of the Titans,” is only four years old.  Since then he’s racked up quite an impressive resume, from Paul W.S. Anderson’s “Three Musketeers” to sword-n-sandals actioner “Immortals” to “F&F 6” to his role as the Bard in the last two »

Day 2: Friday, July 25, 2014

10:00 Am - Publishers Weekly: Behind the Digital Line

As digital comics have become a driving force of the medium, more publishers and creators have launched digital first lines of comics. How do publishers and creators deal with the unique properties of the web and tablet? How do readers react? Are they an evolution from webcomics or their own medium? And how will technological evolution affect storytelling as more choices arise? Pw's »

The HeyUGuys Interview: Simon Merrells on Judas Ghost

10 July 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Stepping out of the haunted village hall for a break from a dance with the supernatural, Simon Merrells took the time to rendezvous with HeyUGuys to discuss his foray into horror with Judas Ghost. Probably most recognised for his role on TV’s Spartacus: War of the Damned in which he played the villainous Crassus with brutal pomp, Merrells is a regular face on both the big and the small screen.

During the course of our brief conversation he shared with us how he discovered his love of performance, and storytelling, as well as his early memories of horror’s most famous monsters and authors. Whilst reflecting on filmmaking as a musical journey, along with the fortunes of the modern short film he invited us inside the village hall to discuss his one location supernatural horror.

Why a career in acting? Was there that one inspirational moment?

Kill Breed - A Look at the Many Species of Vampires

7 July 2014 10:59 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Vampire. Envision the creature. Do you picture the classic cloaked version? Or the frilly shirt-wearing kind? Or the feral? Or god forbid the sparkly ones? Vampires come in all shapes and sizes, and with Rigor Mortis coming to Blu-ray and DVD on July 8th, we decided to take a look at some of our favorites.

Ever since Bram Stoker brought us Dracula, filmmakers and storytellers have been modifying vamps and making them into all sorts of unique beasties. Some are pretty and some are really, really ugly… but they all drink blood and use humans like we use cattle.

Rigor Mortis features a very unique type of vampire, and it's always fun to see a creature that expands the legend.

So let's take a look at some of the coolest types of vampires that have come into our lives.

For starters, we'll begin with the classic vampire. And what do we mean by "classic" vampire? »

5 Reasons You've Absolutely Got to Watch FX's The Strain

7 July 2014 10:36 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

There’s a hint of trepidation any time a new series lands on the small screen. Censorship limitations, fiscal restrictions and an abundance of writers and directors can easily serve as points of distraction for promising concepts.

Sometimes there are just too many chiefs and not enough Indians, and when you’ve got too many chiefs attempting to hold rule over a tribe with the barest of necessities, things can head south in an instant. That’s the law of the land.

Ultimately, the legitimately scintillating concepts tend to succeed, assuming the funds are there to capitalize on and the featuring network is lenient enough to truly push the envelope, if the idea in question calls for the courageous, that is.

FX’s new monster, “The Strain” (which premieres on July 13th), calls for the courageous, unquestionably. A brilliant interpretation of one of history’s most-beloved classics (more on that, »

Tyburn Films: British Horror’s last line of Defence

4 July 2014 6:30 AM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

1976 saw the publication of John Brosnan’s excellent book The Horror People. Written during the summer of 1975, it makes interesting reading 40 years down the line. Those who feature prominently in the book – Peter Cushing, Vincent Price, Jack Arnold, Michael Carreras, Sam Arkoff, Roy Ward Baker, Freddie Francis, Robert Bloch, Richard Matheson and Milton Subotsky – were still alive, as were Ralph Bates, Mario Bava, Jimmy Carreras, John Carradine, Dan Curtis, John Gilling, Robert Fuest, Michael Gough, Val Guest, Ray Milland, Robert Quarry and Michael Ripper, all of whom were given a mention. Boris Karloff, Lon Chaney Junior, Michael Reeves and James H Nicholson were not long dead. Hammer, Amicus and American International Pictures were still in existence. George A Romero had yet to achieve his prominence and Stephen King wasn’t even heard of!

Brosnan devoted a chapter to a new British company called Tyburn Films. Founded by the charismatic and ambitious Kevin Francis, »

Thn’s Dream Vampire Academy

4 July 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Vampires have been a solid fixture in fiction ever since Bram Stoker first put pen to paper. The first film outing was with Nosferatu, a blatant rip-off of Dracula. Since then there has been a steady stream of books turned to films, with classics such as Interview With The Vampire and the not-so-classic Twilight being given the big screen adaptation.

This week sees another vamp-book become a film with Vampire Academy. The books, written by Richelle Mead, follow Rose Hathaway, a Dhampir (half-human, half-vampire) girl training to be a bodyguard for best-friend Lissa, a Moroi (a peaceful mortal vampire).  Morois need protectors from the Strigoi (evil undead vampires). Whilst undergoing her training she becomes romantically entangled with her instructor.

The idea of an academy filled with vamps excited us, so we started to dream up the perfect academy of vamps comprised of the cream of the vampire crop, from television and film. »

Dracula's Grave Has Been Found and Researchers Plan to Open It. Bad Plan!

30 June 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

You read that headline right. Researchers believe they have found the grave of Vlad Tepes III, better known as Vlad the Impaler, aka the guy who was probably a real vampire if there ever was one. And, of course, they plan on popping that baby open.

No one would even write this as a horror movie because it's too predictable. Let's see, you discover the grave of a man considered by many to be a true vampire, and what do you decide to do?

Bury it in cement? Light it on fire? Encase it in carbonite?

Oh no, they want to open it up, which will undoubtedly release some kind of vampiric apocalypse on the Earth.

According to Roadtrippers.com, Vlad the Impaler ruled in the 15th Century with a penchant for torture. And he was really good at it. And although he wasn't against some genital mutilation, scalping, skinning, »

Take Me To The Pilots '14: NBC's 'Constantine'

29 June 2014 3:05 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

[In case you've Forgotten, and as I will continue to mention each and every one of these posts that I do: This is *not* a review. Pilots change. Sometimes a lot. Often for the better. Sometimes for the worse. But they change. Actual reviews will be coming in September and perhaps October (and maybe midseason in some cases). This is, however, a brief gut reaction to not-for-air pilots. I know some people will be all "These are reviews." If you've read me, you've read my reviews and you know this isn't what they look like.] Show: "Constantine" (NBC) The Pitch: For most networks? "It's a DC Comics property with reasonably good name recognition." For NBC? "Well, it's ghostbusting procedural that'll probably do better on Fridays than 'Dracula' and 'Hannibal.'" Quick Response: Neil Marshall is a good director and, what's more important for this purpose, he's generally a very good TV director, which is a gig that's all about aiming big, while also understanding budget and production limitations and delivering bang-for-your-buck. [Starz' "Black Sails" pilot is the exception. As with David Slade on "Crossbones," pirate dramas can render the best of TV helmers anonymous.] I appreciated what Marshall brought to the table in "Constantine." There are creepy moments early on, a couple well-delivered action set pieces and there are effects sequences that made me say, "Huh. That's kinda cool," which doesn't happen frequently with digital effects on TV. But if Marshall is doing »
