Never really watched buffy, but I preferred my vampires as soulless and villainess. And my idea of a romanticized is the Interview with a vampire variety. Soulless, but still with personality and wit and no denial about what they are. Now that's a vampire.
Next up on Pimp My Jeager.

Buffy's quality slipped after season three, but season four wasn't too bad. After that... *Shudder*

Twilight is overrated. In every way. It's overrated by people who love it and people who hate it. No, they're not the best novels ever. They're poorly written, the plot sucks, and the vampires are "vegetarian."
But they're not the worst things ever written, either. Book one on its own isn't too bad, if you can get past certain things. Book three is kinda entertaining, as well. Books two and four... well, there are some issues I have with those books that I just can't get past. :BOOM:

Yes, I did read them all. People told me I couldn't make fun of them until I read them, so I read them.

But I suppose I'm a little biased. I've never really been a vampire person. But I did really like Buffy, where the vampires were evil and gross and actually wanted you dead.

I prefer the vampires in stuff like From Dusk Till Dawn and Blade over stuff like Twilight, Buffy, and whatever other flavour-of-the-week vampire show is out. The whole vampire thing has gotten ridiculous over the last 5 or 10 years or so. As far as horror TV shows, I'm waiting out for the Walking Dead. Zombies > vampires.
What the--Someone let me publish a book! Check out Not So Superpowered. At 80 pages, it's a quick read. Except for you, Burn. You'll take a week or two.

I liked Buffy in the beginning. But as they got on with the series and started to add odd stuff, I lost interest in it.
I'm not into vampires with souls, lesbian witches, or monsters-as-boyfriends.

I don't mind moral dillemas, as they do make the series interesting, but when your heroine starts sleeping with the things she should be killing, then that says to me that the series is starting to veer off course.

And Twilight is just bad all around.


To me, vampires are monsters. They drink blood, are pale because they are physically dead, and they have fangs and claws. They are 'immortal,' they come out only at night (sunlight destroys them), and they don't have souls.
What they are is essentially nightmares-in-the-flesh, and extremely dangerous when encountered.

They are not boyfriend material, and they do not 'sparkle.' :-x

I agree 100%.
I've always had a problem with the rash of romanticized vampires that have dribbled out over the years. My vampire education came from the original 70's production of Salems Lot with David Soul, which terrified the crap out of my adolescent self back then. The movie depicted them as filthy, animalistic things, scratching at your window at night and spreading their disease throughout the town. I used to have nightmares about Barlowe the lead vampire. Now THOSE were vampires!

I only caught one showing of Buffy, which I thought was fairly creepy, but only because it deviated slightly from the Vampire theme. It was the Hush episode with those ghoulish heart-stealing gentlemen guys.

And Kudos to the member who mentioned it-Helsing most definitely rocks! ;)

Oooh definately. I can't stand the romanticized vampire stuff either. It makes the vampire into something cheesy, stripping it of it's horror. Plus the vampire's lover (almost always it's the girl who crushes) ends up wanting to become a vampire themselves. I think that's lame.
And that's another thing that the Twilight novels do, is think that being a vampire is 'fun.'
I don't think that being a vampire would be fun, isn't it supposed to be horrible? Maybe at first it could be (especially if the 'becoming' was voluntary) but I imagine that after awhile the 'novalty' wears off, and that they HAVE to drink blood, and that after watching all their loved ones die from old age, it stops being quite so 'fun.' Then they just 'exist' until they are destroyed.

I've never watched Buffy or Twilight, one's too campy and the other is too girly. I like vampires in the Dracula style, ancient and powerful. Commanding legions of the undead and the creatures of the night.

At any rate, prefer my vampires as predators craving for blood.

The average vampire mook should be brutal killer who will show no sorrow or remorse.
Elder vampires should show more sophistication and cunning.

Heh, I guess we can all agree that the vampires got gayed up and the werewolves got castrated.

Twilight f*cked up our most beloved horror icons.

Just look at this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q77sJT8O56E
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UZLulEgXLOU


Things used to be about alcohol, drugs and sex when I was a teen, but nowadays it's about vampires and werewolves, WTF!!??

Really, getting high or having sex would be therapeutic for these guys.

Guess I'm getting old because I don't get the kids nowadays.

Those "werewolves" are just cosplaying emos.

It wasn't Twilight that started to f*ck up vampire myths, personally I blame Interview with the Vampire. While it had redeeming aspects, it romanticized the vampires' life too much.

The last good vampire movies I saw were Underworld 1-2 (didn't have time to see Rise of the Lycans yet)
GENERATION 1: THE EPIC ORIGINS! -Hasbro

"Autobots, Buster Witwicky killed Primus. Kill on sight!" - broadcast from Urban Dead

One of Buffy's few redeeming character was Spike. Then he turned into a pussy. Ladies and gentleman, the poster boy for "badass decay".

Yeah, neo-vampires blow beyond all reasoning. My girlfriend 'hates' Twilight but has read them all and insists on seeing the movies, which means that I get to see the movies too. In her defense I guess, she's consistant in hating on the books but enjoying the movies, so I guess I sort of have to give it to her, but damnation are vampires so crappy these days. In New Moon (I know, I'm sorry) there were the, like elder vampire council whose name I can't recall, but it was cool sounding (Volteri? Maybe?) and my girlfriend assured me they'd be cool, and they weren't. They looked like one of the old vaudville bits where someone yelled "MAkeup!" and was subsequently hit in the face with the powder puff.

Actually, Buffy season 8 (the "official" continuation of the storyline in comics) is currently pretty bad. One of the last few issues was 24 pages of Buffy and Angel - "them %#&*ing" as the writer so elegantly titled it - indeed having sex randomly interspersed with expositional dialogue from the supporting cast. =;

Let's not be too narrowminded. I mean, yeah, Stephanie Meyer, but...there are others who are doing...THINGS to vampires. Like Charlaine Harris's books which are the True Blood series on TV.

Well, they're KINDA related.

for what its worth, i like Supernatural's take on vampires.

they can day walk(sunlight is like a really bad sunburn), they mate for life, they can only be killed by beheading, or poisoned with dead mans blood (as in blood from a dead person)

Vampires have really take a different turn in the last 15-20 years (maybe more?). For the readers out there I highly suggest Brahm Stoker's Dracula (i.e. the 'original' book). It portrays vampires much more like they used to be "back in the day".
