|Hey guys, so what is your favourite and least favourite way of vampires being written fictionally? (I.E from films,c omics, books?)|
"That’s easy! No glitter! No daylight, less you’re one of those day walker dudes like Blade. No having kids, less you got some kind of magic up your sleeve. I’ve been hella undead for a long ass’d time and there ain’t no way my special men are making it," Paul deduces. "I like us as our bad ass selves, sleeping in the coffin or a cave, drinking blood, and rocking out."
"Yeah I think the classic way is the only way to go," Marko states. "Variations don’t bother me as much as the say the vampire with no real power but strength, like the ones in Underworld. They even have the ability to have kids, but they can’t fly, they can’t really use any mental mind fuckery, what’s the point?"
"You can’t beat a dark classic. I always think back to Nosferatu, the ugly bastard," Dwayne comments with folded arms as he looks to the dark sky. "He was a monster. Technical term, but that’s what we are basically. If I had to chose, I’d say don’t write us like they did in Blade, where those vampires split open and looked like something from alien. That’s not our style."
"Nosferatu, Dracula, as long as the writing shows us for what we really are. We’ll add Near Dark in there too for the hell of it, even though they had no fangs. I say give us fangs. It’s what we use," David says. "Another example of one where their fangs didn’t exist was The Hunger. David Bowie was in that one. Didn’t last long. Odd movie. I got bored with it. Even that comedy, A Vampire In Brooklyn was pretty damn good, because it kept the vampires dark, cunning, tricky. We are magical in a sense."
|I was wandering how the boys deal with being vampires in today's society. What with Twilight and stuff like that degrading vampires images. Does that make sense or did I just confuse the hell outta you?? (And you are bloody awesome xD )|
Were you asking me personally or them? LOL In all honesty I don’t think they really care a whole lot about what’s going on with the likes of movies and stories like Twilight. Something like that is bound to get tired out and fade away because it’s what I consider a fad. Does anyone use that term anymore? I think overall the real vampire lovers out there know the difference between a fake vampire (One that sparkles) and a real one (One that burns up in the sun)
I also think that a lot of people try to make something they are afraid of or would be afraid of seem less scary by putting ideals on them, for instance the fact that the vampires, most of them, in Twilight don’t drink from humans. I know some did and that was awesome. Or giving it a lovers edge. If anything I think the boys would use that even more to their advantage when hunting. It would be extremely easy to haul a girl over and mingle and then boom, she wouldn’t know what hit her; a real monster.
Does that answer your question somewhat? And thank you very much for the compliment! :-)
I’d like to imagine that David would wear his hair like this if wanted to be “modern” in his looks
Course there is nothing wrong with his mullet (he makes it looks good) but just saying
That would actually look really good on him.
The Lost Boys: Reign of Frogs concept drawings for the comic book. You can see in the one above there is no bottle in the vampire’s hand, and then the one below has it. This was story driven of course for what came next. The turning of Alan Frog, which was different in the movie, The Thirst.
