  1. The Mary Sue Interview: A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night Director Ana Lily Amirpour & Star Sheila Vand

    Talking Iranian lady vampire flicks is always the best.

    A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night is one of the coolest movies of the year. Written and directed by Ana Lily Amirpour, the film stars Sheila Vand as a chador-wearing vampire preying on the men of Bad City in a mash-up of western and vampire film, which is also surprisingly funny and romantic. Vand and Amirpour were in New York this week for the release of the film, and talked about their mysterious character, dangerous love, and the benefits of working with a cat on set.

  3. Stan Lee Has Some Delightfully Old-Grandpa Things To Say About Vampires In New Rant Video

    "Get them off my lawn!"

    I fear that Stan Lee may missed the entire point of vampires in this most recent rant, but I'm not going to be the one to tell him that. He's just so adorable. Just don't try to explain the difference between Frankenstein and Frankenstein's monster next, or we'll probably end up breaking him.

  5. So Chris Pine Is A Vampire Lawyer Now

    It's got that thing, you know?

    Chris Pine and the people at Funny or Die must have known that if they attempted a serious ridiculous sketch about vampire lawyers, they would be up against some heavy competition—Phil Hartman's classic caveman lawyer, for example, or Harvey Birdman attorney at law. So instead they went in a different direction, and the entire Internet is better for it.

  6. The Art of the Villain Backstory (and Why Dracula Untold Fails)

    “Son of the devil” my ass.

    Villainous backstories are an... imprecise science. When done well they can imbue a previously simplistic baddie with depth and challenge conventional morality. When done poorly, however, they are frustrating, self-pitying, and utterly off the mark.

  7. The Medieval Ages Were F****** Terrible: Skeleton Found With Stake Through Chest In “Vampire Grave”

    Modern vampires have it so easy.

    Spoopy news for anyone who romanticizes Ye Olden Times: an ancient skeleton has been discovered in a Bulgarian "vampire grave" with an iron ploughshare hammered through its chest.

  8. Archaeologists Have Unearthed a Dungeon They Believe Held Vlad the Impaler (AKA Dracula) Just in Time for Halloween

    Who's up for a field trip?

    It's monster season! But how do archaeologists on a restoration effort at a creepy abandoned castle get involved in the Halloween fun—aside from the fact that their work location is basically a Scooby Doo set? Why, they uncover the dungeon that likely held the man who was part of the inspiration for Dracula, of course!

  9. The Twilight Series Is Coming Back… And the Reason Why Is Actually Pretty Cool

    I know. I'm shocked, too.

    When I read that the Twilight movie franchise was being resurrected with a series of five short films, my reaction was akin to a cat trying to get a hairball out of its throat. But then I read the thing that all the shorts will have in common and... readers, I didn't think I'd ever say this, but... Twilight. I am proud of you.

  10. Do Mermaids Get Periods? or, Explaining The Menstrual Cycles of Various Mythological Creatures

    That is menarche! Er, sorry, malarky. Either or.

    The amount of erotic fiction written about vampires, elves, and mermaids could probably fill up every library in the world, but has anyone ever thought to offer one of these poor souls a tampon? Because I did. Come, speculate wildly with me!
