Greetings vampire fans! After over 3 1/2 years of researching, writing, and watching a whole lot of television, my book, Un-Dead TV, is finally in print!
Un-Dead TV: The Ultimate Guide to Vampire Television
The Dracula project to promote Transylvania as tourism destination represents the most profitable strategy that can be found for the development of the tourism in this region, according to a release of the Romanian Federation of Tourism and Service Employers (FPTS) remitted to Agerpres.
Blood has been a symbol of life since very ancient times. The blood in our veins has always been iconic of our continuing life. To lose too much blood is to lose consciousness, breath, and eventually, our very lives. If a person or animal is already dead and is cut open, blood does not flow. Only the living have blood that flows. Blood has been used throughout the ages as a ceremonial sacrifice.
THR reports that Chaney Entertainment, a company run by Lon Chaney Jr.'s heirs, is reminding Universal about the Chaney legacy with a lawsuit that seeks $1 million in damages for exploiting the dead star's likeness.

The vampire has long been established as a powerful icon of our culture. Many are tempted to believe that the power and popularity of the fanged beast are simply explained by our collective love for danger.
Yes, the vampire is dangerous. There is no question that he (or she!) has taken his position among horror monsters that will survive the ages.

The owner of Bray Studios in Berkshire says the iconic location is no longer viable for movie-making – and that he wants to put up to seven executive homes on the site.
I was never fond of Mezco's "living dead dolls" line (a bit too creepy, even for my tastes), but now that a Dracula version is on the horizon, I've had a change of heart. Based on the Universal monster, this new doll looks like Bela Lugosi, if he were turned at about age ten.
Over the ages, certain artifacts have gained a reputation among popular cultures as ways to ward off, or even kill, vampires. This guide takes you through the historical meaning and reasoning behind the ways we've found to hunt the vampire. So grab your crucifix, and wade on in!
