Vampire Witch

We’ve come rather a long way, I think, from the 16th Century, in which this elderly woman and victim of plague was identified as a witch and vampire, and a brick put in her jaw to prevent her from feeding on the flesh of children from beyond the grave.  Now we can pick up books on how to be an effective vampire at Borders, although we’re still rather paranoid about our children, as a culture.

  1. Hmm, although not sure how much credence I’d put into someone claiming to be a literal vampire of the type which had been featured in nightmares and folklore. Folks who need to feed on the blood of others to survive because they themselves are actually walking corpses? Uh, no.

    I like a good fiction story or Hollywood blockbuster as much as the next person, but I suppose the fear of modern youth “awakening to their latent nosferatu” is not anything I’m buying into as a reality. Every generation has to find a way to distinguish itself from the generations prior and I would hate to think that the best way this current crop of youngsters have come up with is to define themselves by using “reality television” as a basis of enlightenment. Entertainment, acting and glorified roleplay used to promoting wholesale fiction as realism because they really, really, really want it to be true just doesn’t impress me.
