what’s with vampires, anyway? (a naff little rant)

Just finished watching the second season of Being Human, and watched True Blood (s03e04) yesterday. So much blood.

I know vampires are huge right now, blah-di-blah. But what is it about those rivers of blood that makes me feel…

…safe?

It makes me think of the incredible description by Anne Rice in Interview with a Vampire when Louis drinks from his first human. I really wish I had the quote. Louis describes the way he can feel the heartbeat, the way he swoons inside the human until he almost dies with him.

Maybe that’s the fascination: vampires have intimate knowledge of what’s inside us, beyond DNA. They know, much better than us, what makes us human.

    Kathleen Plowman said this afternoon that her favourite novel is titled — “Interview with a Vampire” by Anne Rice and I said that Anii has a blog entry about vampires so I would pass on the enthusiasm — but now I see that it looks as though you’ve already read it. She told me a bit of what it’s about but it didn’t persuade me to overrule my rule never to read vampire books or go to vampire movies. Another missed opportunity.
