I just watched Vampire Hunter D again — an anime with a real set of vampires. You know the ones, don’t like sunlight, suck the blood, hunted, pale skin and definitely don’t like sunlight.
The burning in UV kind of Vampires I’m talking about, not these sparkly tossers that someone has used as a warning against sex.
It occurred to me that there are quite a few cures for this monstrous approach to our pointy-toothed friends of the underworld.
For a start is the aforementioned Vampire Hunter D — a quite interesting story with NO spidermonkeys:
Interview with the Vampire, the movie of Anne Rice’s novel is next on the list.
Then there’s the modern take on Vampires — or at least the late 20th century take with Ultraviolet:
Buffy the Vampire Slayer – Joss Whedon’s long running series (and this video does to Eduardo what we’ve all wanted to do!)
And, of course, Angel.
I’ve yet to see TrueBlood, but I’m told it’s good.
Bottom-line though, there’s plenty to cancel out the horror of Twilight and its soon to be rushed into a cinema near you abomination… god, I don’t even know the name of the next one. And I don’t care either.
