More new film news, spotted by Dread Central - British vampire film "Flesh and Blood". The official website is here, and synopsis is below.

Am I my brother's keeper?

A guilt-ridden loner discovers life and love, only to find it threatened by the only friend he's ever known. Daniel Cain lives a solitary life in a small coastal town. He works as a janitor in the local hospital by day and spends his nights nursing a dark secret. Confined to a squalid cell within his house is Jacob, a creature of the night and Daniel's twin brother.

Into this lonely existence comes Ana, a livewire who shakes up Daniel's world and shows him what he's been missing ... Life itself. As their relationship blossoms, Daniel must face the skeletons in his closet - choosing between a life with his new-found love or his flesh and blood.

Flesh & Blood is a dark, brooding love story set in an out-of-season English resort. At its beating heart lies a question of choice: sacrificing everything out of a misplaced loyalty to family or seizing control of your own destiny to find happiness. When love enters the equation, the answer becomes clear, but sometimes moving on can be deadly!

Last tonight... news of a new book, due out in November. Vampire Empire is by Clay & Susan Griffith.

In the year 1870, a horrible plague of vampires swept over the northern regions of the world. Millions of humans were killed outright. Millions more died of disease and famine due to the havoc that followed. Within two years, once great cities were shrouded by the grey empire of the vampire clans. Human refugees fled south to the tropics because vampires could not tolerate the constant heat there. They brought technology and a feverish drive to reestablish their shattered societies of steam and iron amid the mosques of Alexandria, the torrid quietude of Panama, or the green temples of Malaya.

It is now 2020 and a bloody reckoning is coming.

Princess Adele is heir to the Empire of Equatoria, a remnant of the old tropical British Empire. She is quick with her wit as well as with a sword or gun. She is eager for an adventure before she settles into a life of duty and political marriage to man she does not know. But her quest turns black when she becomes the target of a merciless vampire clan. Her only protector is The Greyfriar, a mysterious hero who fights the vampires from deep within their territory. Their dangerous relationship plays out against an approaching war to the death between humankind and the vampire clans.

Vampire Empire: The Greyfriar is the first book in a trilogy of high adventure and alternate history. Combining rousing pulp action with steampunk style, Vampire Empire brings epic political themes to life within a story of heartbreaking romance, sacrifice, and heroism.

"I want to bite you, Heffa. I want to bite you very hard. I'll be gentle, I promise. If you really loved me, you'd let me"
Heffa Lump is just a typical, pale and interesting 17-year-old, who doubts anyone will ever see her true beauty. But then she moves to Spatula and meets Teddy Kelledy, an impossibly gorgeous boy who eats rare meat, is super-strong and never goes out in sunlight. Could he - just maybe - be a vampire? (Hint: totally.)
A tale of first love, painful longing and even more painful pointy teeth, New Moan is a hilarious parody of the phenomena that is Stephenie Mayer's Twilight saga.

Taliesin today looks at "Mystery & Imagination : Dracula" from 1968
