A Sleepy Sunday...

After a busy week this looks like being a quieter day, but lets get started.

A few more sites running with the "Dear Dracula" news, a CGI film in the works. Movieweb has a piece here, and the Hollywoodnorthreport has a piece with a couple of sample bits from the graphic novel.

Ahh... Twilight & MTV awards day today. No doubt tomorrow's news will be full of Twilight being the bestest movie ever, as voted by tweeny sparklie loving veggie whiny vampire fans. First links of what will no doubt be many are here. Here is the official MTV piece on the awards (Thanks to Deaana at Vampire Cafe for spotting)

Vampire Cafe also spotted this...behind the scenes look at "Dylan Dog", an Italian graphic novel featuring vamps, among other critters.

Here is news of a production in New York. Dracula will be showing at the Geva Theatre centre in Rochester NY on Friday 19th June and Sunday 21st June. Full details are here.

QuietEarth has done a review of "Blood : The Last vampire" here.

This isnt new, but i just spotted it today - for those of you that like to read up on vampire lore and it's origins, have a look at this.

Possibly the big news of the day...UK Tabloid TheMirror has news that Jennifer Ellison is to have a role in "Carmilla" based on the cult Victorian novel of the same name which pre-dated Bram Stoker's Dracula by 25 years.

A piece from Gabrielle Faust's Eternal Vigilance site now. Angeline Hawke's collection of Horror has gone on sale here.

Taliesin's review of the day is "Black Blood Brothers" a 12 part vampire anime series.

Blog news i'll start putting down here... added a few bits today! I've created a "Vamps on Stage" calendar, that hopefully over the coming weeks as i find stuff, i will populate with vampire plays, musicals and productions wherevere they may be. I've also added the Sublime Requiem forum to the links, and created a little chunk for Vampire Communities - sites that have forums but a lot more content to go with them. So far that section has the Darkness Embraced site, and the Vampirefreaks site. Finally...I got tired of the default bland logo at the top so i spent 15 mins in photoshop knocking something together that i think looks ok.


  1. The Carmilla news would seem to be big - I love the film and there just aren't enough adaptations - but the Mirror article says so very little about the project - we'll have to keep our eyes peeled.

  2. Taliesin, the Mirror actually had the thing labelled as "Carmella". I almost put a note here saying take this with a pinch of salt since it is a UK Tabloid...wish i had! Zahir at Undead Whispers dug out the imdb info, it is a Carmilla remake and not a knock off version...
