Adults as vampires really??

grandpa munster

It really strikes me funny adults that pretend to be vampires. Why? I guess some think it is sexy. Although anyone seeing Bram Stokers Nosferatu wouldn’t have that as the first thing that came to mind.

nosferatu

I guess it was that Tween movie twilight that started the rage and now they are all older and don’t want to let go of their childhood. Just seems awfully silly to me. Besides the bloody legends that led up to Bram Stokers story really don’t seem the thing of child playthings. Dracula, Vlad the impaler was a worse murderer than we have ever seen in this age. The truth though was he was trying to protect his people from invaders. Some in Romania still think of him as a hero. So when you middle aged vampiresses and vampires put in your plastic teeth I hope you give a thought to he who started the legend.

    To some, I think the idea of a vampire gives them a thrill and they believe they have a “special” power over others!! THOSE have not read their history books!!!!

    I thought the age of petty vampires started with Love at First Bite, Fright Night, The Lost Boys, Dracula (with Gary Oldman) and Interview with a Vampire. Twilight just added sparkles! lol

    Actually, the gothy kids I knew who got into the vampire subculture were well aware of Vlad Tepes, Elisabet of Bathory, Max Von Shrek, etc. LOL, there’s always kind of been a rift between those of us who enjoy vampire myth, pop culture, and the psychology behind it, and those who started actually claiming to BE vampires…even the classic Bauhaus song “Bela Lugosi’s Dead” was a goof on people who got overly obsessed with making a whole life of it. Laugh at us spooky types if you want, but don’t think we don’t know our history books. I’d rather know those. as far as I’m concerned “Twilight” is a time of day and nothing else! πŸ™‚

      The kids I understand. Fantasy is fun and a way to express yourself but some middle aged people do it too which is kind of weird. They also d t to attract young people which is pretty creepy.

        Not necessarily. This has gone on well before Twilight. Some may have been playing “Vampire the Masquerade” since that game came out in the early 90’s and still keep it up as a hobby. Some I know through the fetish communities, it’s a sexual roleplay thing, but their partners are their own age.

        And I’m sure there are some predatory types who use this to lure naive underage people which is criminal, but then again, there have been sports coaches, teachers, politicians, priests and all kinds of other “norms” busted for doing the same kinds of things.

        I’m not saying everyone has to like vampires or that you can’t find it funny that human beings claim to be vampires while drinking clamato or whatever. I just want to shed some light on the subculture that they’re not all a bunch of dangerous creeps out to get younger people, mostly it’s a bunch of harmless goths and horror-fantasy nerds and such. πŸ™‚

        Thank you. There is nothing wrong with it I just find it odd when middle aged people do it with young people. Just a tad creepy.

    Oh yes, Vlad the killing machine who threw his enemies onto poles hole first then watched them slide down and die slow and painful deaths. Vampires of the modern age are sexy, but the original tales were horrific and based on fact.
    If you enjoy this post please leave a comment on the original post and not merely here, thank you

    Vampires are a metaphor. The metaphor makes sense given that we call this the age of narcissism.

    Please note, I’m not saying that everyone who likes to play with the image are narcissists.

    I think that the sexy vampire has it’s roots in the Hammer Films of the 1960’s but I think he is the first sexy male vampire where you end up wanting him to win: https://youtu.be/mOZRR71ielg

    Great post!
    I’ve always been fascinated by vampires.
    Have you seen the movie “What We Do in the Shadows” ?! I love that movie! πŸ™‚
    One time at Universal Studios, Dracula came up to me and said, “I vant to bite your neck.” So, as I walked toward him, I say, “Oh, yes, please bite my neck!” And he was visibly taken back! I think I scared poor Dracula! Apparently no one ever reacted to him that way before! πŸ™‚ We both got a good laugh out of it! πŸ˜›
    HUGS!!!
