Vampires for Mother’s Day

I love good vampire stories and movies. This Mother’s Day, I decided to kickoff a spring watching some old favorite movies. And since I have a vampire novella coming out soon, why not get a glass of red wine and celebrate. Nothing like escaping to a world of immortality after a long day at work.

I started with Queen of the Damned. What a great soundtrack.

When I saw Blade 2 while flipping through the channels, I added that to the list. Blade 1 and 2 are awesome. Then I added Interview with the Vampire, a book I’ve read many times and movie I’ve seen even more so. I’m going to watch Bram Stoker’s Dracula tonight, which I haven’t seen in 10-15 years. The soundtracks to Interview and Dracula are great as well and have been using them as background music as I write my new novella this week. It does get you into a weird state of mind after a few hours, I must say. Haha!

Maybe add the old Fright Night movie and Lost Boys as well.

All this is helping me cope with my True Blood withdrawal. It’s the one show that I’m addicted to. I’m reading Charlaine Harris’s Sookie Stackhouse books, but trying not to get too far ahead of the show. My sister recommended the UK version of Being Human. If you’ve watched it, what do you think?

What other vampire movies do you recommend? What stories?

Hopefully no werewolves or zombies. Not a fan at all!

  1. Lisa I used to love the old Dark Shadows afternoon TV drama. That was the first “nice” vampire to arrive on the scene. I don’t do movies much. But I do read Keri Arthur and she writes paranormal and one of the characters in the first series I read by her is dating a vampire and the heroine and her twin brother are half were wolf and half vampire. It started with Full Moon Rising the first book in the Riley Jensen guardian series. I loved the entire series and now she’s moved onto another series involving some of the same people but older now. I never tried to write a paranormal along those lines I have one where the hero and heroine have special powers. The other one I wrote had time travel in it.
