Todays Hot Pick for The Blog With Bites Vamp-Week is going to be
By far one of the most interesting Vampires in literature and on the screen.
"I'm the vampire Lestat. Remember me? The vampire who became a super rock star, the one who wrote the autobiography? The one with the blond hair and the grey, and the insatiable desire for visibility and fame? You remember..."
Queen of The Damned was kind of a flop for me as far as the movie go's......but the whole story behind Lestat and his inner-stuggles made me a fan, I thought this was Anne Rice's best character, and Stuart Townsend didnt look to shabby playing the tortured rock star.
BOOK PICK- Salems Lot by Stephen King
Simply taken as a contemporary vampire novel, great fun to read, and has been very influential in the horror genre. But it's also a sly piece of social commentary. As King said in 1983, "In 'Salem's Lot, the thing that really scared me was not vampires, but the town in the daytime, the town that was empty, knowing that there were things in closets, that there were people tucked under beds, under the concrete pilings of all those trailers. (Taken from GoodReads.com)
From Wilipedia and Stephen Kings website, he states that idea to write Salem's Lot came to him while teaching a high school Fantasy and Science Fiction course at Hampden Academy, King was inspired by Dracula, one of the books covered in the class and wondered what would happen if Dracula came back to the 21st century.
