  • Best vampire movie/series!
    galadrielmt About BBC Dracula, I agree that the first 2 episodes are good, but the third one... I am with you that the first part is silly, but the ending for me is really not good. Because for me, Dracula as a vampire always has to have this quality about the lack of humanity. Dracula is... see more
  • Best vampire movie/series!
    Impressive! You must be as learned as Van Hellsing when it comes to vampires then by now! 😉 Well, Carpe Jugulum is part of Terry Pratchett's Discworld series, which I can wholeheartedly recommend, but it is a bit difficult to orient in, the series is long, over 40 books, and they are separated... see more
  • It's vampire time! 🧛 What is the best vampire game?
    DracoTarot and galadrielmt, yeah, Castelvania is very well done, though I am biased a bit, I only played games by MercurySteam, the Lords of Shadows ones. I really need to play the traditional "Metroidvania-style" games too one of these days, those ported to PC, but I can't find the time just yet. 😅 see more
  • It's vampire time! 🧛 What is the best vampire game?
    Yesterday, DracoTarot mentioned the new Nosferatu movie in the vampire movie thread (thank you!) in conversation with galadrielmt and j7schultz. This reminded me, there is an interesting quest easter egg in one of the games. The iconic Nosferatu made a brief appearance in the iconic Red Dead... see more
  • Who is the best vampire? 🧛
    Wait, there is a third season? I thought there were only two, as per based on book? see more
  • Who is the best vampire? 🧛
    Yes, and I saw the poster, this is exciting! I am waiting to see how they manage, to me, part of the charm and "effect" of the original film was that it was not in colour and silent. I do not know much about the new one, have not looked into it yet, so maybe you know, but I do not think they would... see more
  • Who is the best vampire? 🧛
    galadrielmt Bela Lugosi is a classic one, yes. I like Christopher Lee a bit more, maybe because he had this...I dunno, a knack for dark characters. Dracula, Count Dooku, Saruman... Not his only roles, of course, he was thankfully blessed with a very long and fruitful career for all of us to enjoy... see more
  • Who is the best vampire? 🧛
    I saw that one, but it was a long time ago, I do not remember most of it. And I did not see the original, either. But what I can say is, I always thought that they should have named their remake Deep Shadows instead of Dark Shadows, and then PR it as "Depp in Deep". Puns galore! see more
  • Best vampire movie/series!
    j7schultz This is branching out to books, but we might as well! Have you read Carpe Jugulum? Like everything Sir Terry wrote, I liked that outlook on vampires very much, and the ending is just superb in it's irony! see more
  • Who is the best vampire? 🧛
    galadrielmt I always found it funny how he was the first adaptation of a vampire on the screen because that, by definition, was also the first bust of the vampire myth. As we know, the vampire image can't be captured on film, so the first film about vampires was in itself a bit of a paradox. But... see more
  • Who is the best vampire? 🧛
    To be honest, not in my top picks, that one, too...juvenile for my taste. But don't be sad, he still got some love from LilySensei (Paty) in the Spanish community! see more
  • Best vampire movie/series!
    j7schultz Wow, so many options! And that Strain one is almost an upsetting image, I will not watch that one after lunch for sure. But what about the rest, any particular reasons why you like these, there is a lot, so I am trying to narrow it down and see what is special about each of them. see more
  • Who is the best vampire? 🧛
    GoLLuM13 I started watching Demon Slayer, not sure if the monsters there qualify as vampires, that was always odd to me how they have most of the usual qualities of vampires but are not just called that. But that is common for anime in general, it was the same for Shiki, for example. They did a... see more
  • Who is the best vampire? 🧛
    GoLLuM13 No, that's the first time I hear about it. I'll need to look into it now! But hey, we live in a time of reboots, so who knows, they may make a modern version. As for not knowing many shows, not to worry, here is a whole thread about them! Hopefully, with time it will be filled with some... see more
  • It's vampire time! 🧛 What is the best vampire game?
    GoLLuM13 Sure! We could maybe even go so far as to put Castelvania as a candidate for the best vampire game series. Because it is a strong one! see more
  • Reality Manipulation (repost)
    Wow @GoLLuM13, you want to do some pretty dangerous stuff. Hiding from zombies, escaping rat swarms, fighting monsters. Kudos! I was thinking about those more exciting games, but more in terms of "Middle-earth sounds nice, but no running water is a big no-no, I am accustomed to a certain level... see more
  • Who is the best vampire? 🧛
    j7schultz Oh yes, I was just making a post about it! The shadows one, I mean! Here it is! So we thought of the same thing! This post is for films and series, so any of those you like, please share! see more
  • Best vampire movie/series!
    Hello Legion Gamers! The spooky month is gaining steam and this week the vampires are all over the place as Thursday's Bloodhunt game approaches! 🧛 On Monday we started talking about vampire games, and yesterday recalled our favourite bloodsuckers in general (of course, that does not mean that... see more
  • Reality Manipulation (repost)
    @M2lobaz, this is a nice topic! But there is just so much to choose from. And games sometimes are made in famous franchises, for example, I'd like to try on the robes of Jedi (but, let's face it, I'd probably end up a Sith) in the Star Wars universe, but not just because of the game, I like that... see more
  • Who is the best vampire? 🧛
    j7schultz Oh, I did not know that Interview with the Vampire was being made into a series, I'll need to keep an eye out for that, thank you! But I did not read any of Rice's books. But I do like how Bram Stoker kept the flair of mystery around Dracula, there is no backstory, no reveal of how he... see more
