It’s the first Rice novel to include illustrations—and we’ve got an exclusive excerpt and some image reveals to…
Horror movies bring people together. Cuddling on the couch during the jump scares. Getting accidentally married for real on the set of your gothic horror film. Wait, is that last one not normal?
Lestat will rise again. Anne Rice’s The Vampire Chronicles series, which has been in the works for two years, is finally coming to television on Hulu.
It’s the sexy story of forbidden love between a vampire and... anything that’s not a vampire. Man, the undead really are a bigoted bunch, aren’t they? The first look at Sky One’s new series A Discovery of Witches is here, promising sexual tension, dramatic head turns, and Ser Alliser Thorne from Game of Thrones…
The original Vampironica was equal parts Vampirella and old-school Archie queen bee Veronica Lodge, but in Greg and Meg Smallwood’s newest reboot of the character, Riverdale’s teen vampire antihero is reimagined for the millennial age.
Here’s some very promising news for fans of Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement’s cult-beloved vampire mockumentary What We Do in the Shadows: FX has ordered a pilot for a half-hour comedy series based on the film.
When Eddie Murphy, Angela Bassett, and Wes Craven’s Vampire in Brooklyn hit theaters back in October of 1995, the horror-comedy was savaged by critics who felt the film’s deviations from more “traditional” vampire lore made it a lesser entry to the canon. Looking back, it’s obvious they were wrong.
It may be a while before Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi return to the world of What We Do In the Shadows but, like the vampires it portrays, the idea is never dead.
When I think back about the Saturday morning TV shows that had a profound impact on me while growing up, a handful of series like Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers and Digimon come to mind. But let me ask you a question: do you remember Van-Pires, a show about... well, teen/vampire/car hybrids?
The Witch—the quietest, creepiest horror film of 2015—put both director Robert Eggers and star Anya Taylor-Joy on the map. Now, they may reteam to breathe life into another scary story.
Everyone knows The Lost Boys is a great vampire movie. When people think of it, their first thought is of Kiefer Sutherland’s terrifying, blood-sucking punk David, then of Corey Feldman and Corey Haim teaming up to battle the vampires plaguing their town. And all of that is great, but to me, it’s not what makes the…
In May, we shared the first episode of Cristian Ponce’s spooky animated web series, Ghost Radio, about a late-night radio show wafting over the airwaves from the monster-choked town of Kirlian. Episode two is here, and it’s another tale of terror, titled “Masters of the Night.”
Jim Mickle’s indie Stake Land was one of 2010's best horror films—its post-apocalyptic road movie structure was familiar, but its gritty use of vampires (instead of, say, zombies) was distinctive. Mickle returns to produce Stake Land II, which is directed by Dan Berk and Robert Olsen—and we’ve got an exclusive clip.
Feeling drained? According to a new study, a vampire bat species that typically feeds on native birds has turned to sucking the blood of humans at night, likely due to human encroachment.
When you think of vampires, chances are you think of Anne Rice’s Lestat—gothic, beautiful, tortured, romantic, everything that has practically defined the creatures in pop culture since Rice wrote Interview With the Vampire in 1976. But in her new book, the unusually titled Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis (…
True Queen of the Damned Anne Rice has announced she’s acquired the rights to produce her Vampire Chronicles novel series for the small screen, and she wants to make it a Game of Thrones-style epic...with more Lestat.
If you haven’t read Prince Lestat, Anne Rice’s most recent Vampire Chronicles book, a lot has changed for the tribe of the Undead. The vampires actually came together, entered the modern world, and formed a community with Lestat at its head. But with Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis, Rice is going to change …
Charlaine Harris’ True Blood books spawned a huge hit for HBO, and NBC is hoping for a similar windfall with Midnight, Texas. The series is also based on Harris books, and also features a small Southern town with some decidedly supernatural inhabitants. Because it’s NBC though, it looks a little more... tame.
YouTube series Carmilla—based on the 19th century lesbian vampire tale, but updated to a modern-day college setting—will get its own feature after it wraps up its third and final season. The jump to movie is based in no small part on the show’s incredibly devoted fan base, which has boosted it to over 50 million views.
What We Do in the Shadows is the only vampire mock-doc the world will ever need, because it is hilarious, raunchy, and perfectly self-aware. The werewolf-themed sequel (genius title: We’re Wolves) is percolating, and now the rumored TV spin-off is confirmed. But don’t get too excited about the latter just yet.
