Cultural Differences ~ Vampires

Recommended Posts

SDJ's Vinegar Taster's thread brought back a memory...

 

Over thirty years ago some of my Chinese friends decided I needed to experience some "cultural diversity."  To this end, they brought me a number of VHS movies, including several with vampire themes.

 

"They don't turn into bats and fly, Rocko! [my OTHER alias] They HOP!"  

 

Indeed they do!  :lol:

 

Some of the films were actually quite good.  This sample is one of the more campy ones, but will give a hint.  (Compared to the better ones, this is like the TV Batman vs some of the modern movies.)

In some of the movies they do these outrageously graceful 40-foot leaps, usually in slow motion.  

 

And they seem more into stabbing with long, sharp nails than biting necks...  :rolleyes:

Yeah, I'm familiar with this method.  Wish I could remember from what source.  I've been hooked on vampire tales since about the age of eight -- Bram Stoker's classic was my first Victorian novel.

Found it!

 

Unfortunately, not subtitled. :(

 

Ryder, I honestly don't think subtitles would make much of a difference...  :lol:

Miz Pete... all in all they can grab ya!

 

My worst was the werewolf stories.  I remember many, many years ago, ol' Hank and I up late one night out at his ranch, watching werewolf movies and unsuccessfully tryin' to figure out how to melt down his Ma's silverware into bullets...  ^_^
