  • Interview With Anno Dracula Author Kim Newman

    · By Rachel Clinesmith

    You’ve said in the past that Todd Browning's 1931 version of Draculai would inspire your love of the entire fiction. How do you think that film holds up against the ones that have come later? Well, it's indubitably an antique, but it's one that I personally revisit every couple of years and find something new, and fresh, and strange in. In pure cinema terms, I don't think it's as good as Nosferatu, which is ten years older. I think I slightly prefer it to the Hammer films as well. For me it's first because it was the first I saw,...

  • Interview with Emmy Award Winning Buffy the Vampire Slayer Makeup artist Todd McIntosh

    · By Rachel Clinesmith

    So: What is your favorite fictional depiction of vampires?   Favorite fictional depiction. So books or movies?  Either or both. That's a tough one because there are some really great, obscure, little vampire stories out there. Like, recently, I read a book called Only the Dead Know Burbank, and it was a really great original take! Still, I would have to say that probably Dracula and the original Dark Shadows are the foundational ones that brought me to the vampire world. I think I was about six or seven years old at this point. My stepmother was watching soap operas...

  • Ville Valo Interview for Vampyre Magazine Issue 11 by Lauren Demona

    · By Demona Lauren

    INTERVIEW | DEMONA LAUREN for Vampyre magazine   It had been five long years since Ville Valo and his crew had last seen each other, and two years after his first solo adventure. A perfect opportunity to discuss these last years with him during an exclusive interview. In 2020, the former HIM front-man released an EP titled Gothica Fennica Vol. 1 which clearly sounded like the legendary band. The disc only included three tracks: ‘Salute the Sanguine’, ‘'Run Away From the Sun’ and ‘Saturnine Saturnalia’. Still, it was already enough for the followers of his former group and had them...

  • Interview with Jet from Vampirefreaks.com!

    · By Rachel Clinesmith

    What gave you the idea for VampireFreaks the social media network and how did that come about? VampireFreaks had already been a website for over 4 years before I created the social networking site in 2004. It started as just a personal hobby/pet-project, and it was mainly a message-board with some picture galleries of me, my spooky friends, as well as some flash animations and scripts I had written.   I was going to college for computer science at the time, learning software programming while I also taught myself some website programming, so VampireFreaks was just a way for me...

  • Bit (2019)

    · By Rachel Clinesmith

    Bit (2019) is a criminally underrated independent Vampire film. More vampire fans NEED TO SEE THIS MOVIE. Harmony M. Colangelo’s review on Medium touted it as the best example of trans representation when it first premiered. Largely because it doesn’t even really mention that the main character Laurel, (and actor Nicole,) is a trans girl at all, but rather treats her just like every other girl in the movie and barely even alludes to it. However, that’s not the only thing that makes Bit stand out so far from other vampire films. It offers us a completely new perspective on...

  • Interview with Don Webb

    · By Father Sebastiaan

    FS: Can you tell us about the Order of the Vampyre and it being the first org for vampires? DW: The Order of the Vampyre is the second oldest Order in the Temple of Set. Orders are areas of specialized study and affinity that Second Degree black magicians can join. If you think of the Temple as a university, then Orders are like majors. The First Degree is your basic work – showing competence in magic (through objective results), competence in philosophy, (through writing and presentations), ethics (through deeds, not words) and a deep commitment to self-improvement and rational thinking....
