I’ve come to realize I have a serious vampire and zombie obsession.
In fact Greg and I argue about them…a lot.
And when I say vampire, I’m not talking about the sparkling brooding, self-pity shit from Twilight. I’m talking Bram Stoker and Anne Rice vampires. The stake me in the heart I turn to dust vampires.
Before meeting Greg I was never into zombies. Not at all. You wouldn’t catch me watching any of George A. Romero’s zombie movies. NO WAY! Or vampire ones. I’d read Dracula but that was it.
Okay, and watch the old black and white Dracula. That wasn’t scary, just sad. Poor Dracula. He just wanted to love someone! Damnit!
But then Greg and I got married and are living together and well…for those of you who know my dear husband, he’s a horror movie fiend. We have just as many slasher, gore, zombie movies as Disney.
I finally watched Night of the Living Dead, in black and white first. At first I was, meh. Then I watched Day of the Dead, Dawn of the Dead and Land of the Dead. Okay, not so meh. Then the remake of Night of the living Dead. Okay, they aren’t so bad. A little gross, but nothing I can’t handle right?
Then…then he bought the Resident Evil movies (see my complaint of not following the games in earlier post.). I refused to watch them at first. No way in hell was I going to watch that blood bath. But, slowly he wore me down and I caved. I watched the fist one. And guess what…yeah, I liked it. So I watched em all.
Then he started on the vampire movies. First one I watched? Van Helsing. Not a bad movie. Not quite the Dracula I remember from Bram Stoker’s book, but okay. Then came Interview with a Vampire. I cried. I admit it. I bawled like a baby. I loved the movie! And so hubster introduced me to Underworld. Not quiet my cup of tea, but it wasn’t bad, not at all.
Then I started looking up things about vampires on my own. My favorite real “vampire”? Okay, not “favorite” but you know what I mean, Erzsebet Bathory. Don’t know who she was? Google her. She was a real gem let me tell you.
Now not only was I hooked on zombies, now I’m hooked on vampires.
Which inevitably led to our latest bickering argument. Who would win, zombies or vampires?
I got in-depth, if a zombie and vampire bite someone at the same time, what happens to that person? Do they turn into a vombie? Or how about a zompire? Vambie? Do they crave blood, brains or both? Are they slow like a zombie but still think like a vampire? Or fast and brainless?
I would love to hear everyone’s thoughts on zompires…or vombies.
