Apparently angels are the next big teen-lit thing, which is great. They'll make vampires look exciting.

On the other hand, the vampires in Twilight would make a dead dog look exciting. :D

Personally, I'm waiting for the Clown bandwagon to start rolling :evil:

Seriously overweight men and women in ill fitting clothes, with red noses, straggly hair and large feet :P

What's not to be scared about?

Generally I think vampires are getting a bit overworked.
The first episode of True Blood, a vampire was being staked out in the carpark to get the blood from it? Isn't it supposed to be the other way about?
On the other hand I thought Thirst was quite inventive and gave a different take on proceedings.

As with everything else its how you do it that counts.

That staking of the vampire in True Blood was the only thing I liked about it. Turning things on their head is usually a good way to go.

It can be.

I thought that scene was quite dramatic too. But in principle I'm just being a bit old school I think. A bit sad when the vampire becomes the victim.

But it was all a bit too americanified to watch for any great length of time for my taste.

Just so long as you're not staked out on the ground eh?

Is a leech a vampire? This horroris a nose-dwelling leech, Tyrannobdella rex, a new species of leech with a single row of eight "enormous teeth", discovered in South America. (Looks like a Schoenherr Dune sandworm don't you think?)

Quote:
A new species of leech, discovered by an international team of scientists, has a preference for living up noses.

Researchers say the leech can enter the body orifices of people and animals to attach itself to mucous membranes.

They have called the new blood-sucking species Tyrannobdella rex which means tyrant leech king.

The creature was first discovered in 2007 in Peru when a specimen was plucked from the nose of a girl who had been bathing in a river.

The creature lives in the remote parts of the Upper Amazon and has a "particularly unpleasant habit of infesting humans", the scientists say.

I don't like the sound of this leech, but I love the name Tyrannobdella rex :P
