Closing down...

Sorry folks.

After 2 and a bit years of posting every night, i'm now really struggling to keep putting 2 hours a night into scouring the web for new vampire material, so i've regrettably decided to bring the curtain down on the blog, at least for the forseeable future.

I hope its been useful and its been worthwhile for all of you!

I'll be continuing to be involved in, and with the gang over at, and very soon  i hope to be attempting to get a novel published, so keep an eye out for Silver and Sunlight (2 books written, No 3 in the works)

So... thanks for all the comments and thanks for reading!

BloodyDisgusting has a look at Belgian film Vampires here.

BloodyDisgusting also runs a feature on vampire film The Passage here, to be directed by Matt reeves.

Dread Central has some new film news... August 2nd is the DVD release date for Strigoi : the Undead.

Breaking Glass Pictures will release director Faye Jackson’s vampire tale “Strigoi: The Undead” on DVD August 2 under the Vicious Circl Films label. The dark comedy follows the quirky inhabitants of a Romanian village who learn that there are vampires among them.

Synopsis: After failing to start a life of his own, 20-something Vlad is forced to move back to his grandfather’s old farming village in Romania. Though the village seems like a typical Eastern European haven, a mysterious death suddenly thrusts Vlad into the heart of a murder mystery. As he sets out to investigate, his trail leads him to the Tirescus — an ex-Communist couple who happen to be the richest landowners in town. Though Vlad is determined to confront the Tirescus, his quest takes a detour when he learns that the two bullies may be bloodsuckers in more ways than one…
“Strigoi: The Undead” puts an original twist on the vampire genre by introducing us to an ancient myth: Strigoi, the belief that people who’ve been wronged can rise again after death to seek justice and satisfy their thirst for blood. A deeply human take on an old horror story, this dark comedy explores the old world versus the new and delves into the heart of modern Romania.
DVD extras will include Jackson’s short film “Lump” and a trailer.

Dread Central has a catchup of True Blood seasons 1-3 here.

I know fans of Vampire Diaries have been waiting for this...  15th September is the release date for Vampire Diaries season 3

DEVIL BAT DIARY - The Journal of Johnny Layton by Peter H. Brothers
Inspired by the famous 1940 film, “Devil Bat Diary” (ISBN: 9-781461-070924), tells the “true” story of what “really” happened to the unhappy citizens of Heathville, Illinois, during that terrible prewar summer, as recorded in the long-suppressed journals of Chicago City Register’s principal newspaper correspondent, Jonathan “Johnny” Layton.
The Devil Bats were furry fiends created by a scientific genius who believes himself wrongfully relegated to concocting perfumes and colognes which he despises for wages not worth mentioning.  So, as a means to an embittered end, he manufactures an evil ointment with a scent that so infuriates his giant bats to such an extent they feel compelled to tear the throats out of their unsuspecting victims.
“Devil Bat Diary” tells for the first time the full inside story of what took place in ways not possible to show to Production Code audiences back then: such as Chief Wilkins being in love with Layton or that Mary Heath was a superstitious lunatic or that Layton and his trusted picture-taking partner “One-Shot” McGuire couldn’t stand the sight of each other!
Written to coincide with the 70th Anniversary of the film’s release and dedicated to the eternal memory of Bela Lugosi, “Devil Bat Diary” is an unforgettably entertaining venture into a world filled with chirping Chiropterans, malicious murders, sacred sex and revolting revelations.
(Peter H. Brothers is also the author of “Mushroom Clouds and Mushroom Men – The Fantastic Cinema of Ishiro Honda.”)
