Werewolves tonight on Syfy with a take on the Little Red Riding story : 'Red: Werewolf Hunter'

Felicia Day, star of The Guild and Joss Whedon’s Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-long Blog, who also played “Vi” in the final season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, will portray a descendant of Little Red Riding Hood in Red: Werewolf Hunter, debuting Saturday, October 30, at 9PM (ET/PT).
Red (Day) brings her fiancé home, where he meets the family and learns about their business — hunting werewolves.  He’s skeptical until bitten by a werewolf.  When her family insists he must be killed, Red tries saving him.  Red: Werewolf Hunter also stars Kavan Smith (Stargate Atlantis)and Stephen McHattie (Watchmen).

Christ’s evil twin? The vampire’s religious roots

It takes more than a theological stake to the heart to kill the vampire legend.
Stories of dark-eyed seducers who prey on unsuspecting victims to suck their blood have persisted for more than five centuries. They have haunted our dreams and films, moving from place to place. And they are reborn in every generation. Today these parasites-on-the-living seemingly are everywhere.
From the television series “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight books and films to the current HBO saga, “True Blood,” fascination with these so-called creatures of the night permeates contemporary life, albeit in modern forms. Thousands of living Americans even consider themselves vampires.
So why is this mythic figure so long-lived and potent?
Sigmund Freud said vampires represent our repressed sexuality and aggression, while Carl Jung argued that they are a universal type of “shadow,” or dark side of the human personality. They embody aspects of ourselves that we reject, hide or are ashamed to confront.

Will The Walking Dead do for zombies what True Blood did for vampires?

Andrew Lincoln of This Life plays an all-American everyman in a grisly post-apocalyptic drama from the writer of The Shawshank Redemption

There is a moment at the start of the most gore-laden, bloody and grisly TV episode ever made when you will think to yourself: "What's Egg from This Life doing in an American cop's uniform?"

But this thought won't occupy you for long: you'll have more to think about than just Andrew Lincoln's transformation from Brit actor to all-American blue collar hero. Like zombies: lots and lots of zombies. Zombies with flesh peeling from their faces to reveal bits of skull, zombie grannies, zombie psychos, zombie toddlers and – in one tasteful early scene – a legless, half-eaten, decaying zombie woman who's dragging herself slowly around town like a human slug. It is very probably the most unpleasant thing on mainstream TV since Kim Woodburn forced down a kangaroo testicle on I'm A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here!

Vampire Diaries Season 2 Episode 8 - Rose Extended Preview

Wow and when did you grow up Stephen R McQueen ????!

Vampire Expert Ian Holt: ‘Vampires Do Exist. I Have Met Them.’

Author Ian Holt wrote a sequel to Bram Stoker’s Dracula (Dracula the Un-Dead) alongside Stoker’s great-grand nephew, Dacre Stoker. Holt also serves as writer and producer for the supernatural thriller film, Episode 50. We caught up with this vampire expert just in time for Halloween.

Q: Why are vampires portrayed as sexy monsters?

A: That was just a happy accident. As written, Bram’s character of Count Dracula was old, he smelled like the grave, he had hair on his palms and the facial features of a rodent. Bram’s Count Dracula was not at all sexy.

True Blood and Vampire Diaries stars tell us their favorite scary movies !

For True Blood'Rutina Wesley, her fear of spiders is nothing compared to being on set this past season.

“It was scary being on set with some of the animals,” said Wesley, who noted that ArachnophobiaFriday the 13th and Psycho gave her the creeps. “They were gentle as can be but just the fact that you’re on with hybrid wolves is a little scary.”

But what gives Wesley’s co-star Sam Trammell nightmares?

“Something like Paranormal I haven’t even seen the end of,” Trammell said. “That kind of thing is really scary so I watch it in pieces. I love Dario Argento. The original Texas Chainsaw Massacre is still horrifying to me because it’s so faux-documentary, it’s so scrappy, it’s horrifying.”

True Blood actress Kristin Bauer’s fears are slightly more realistic.

“When I had the fight scene with Stephen Moyer [Bill] I really just had to go for it and snarl and make guttural sounds that felt so ridiculous,” she said. “Every time they said cut, I said, “Really? Do I look ridiculous?’ That was the scariest day. Stephen helped me through it.”

Nina Dobrev, who plays two characters on The Vampire Diaries, says that’s nothing compared to her fear of blood.

“Ironically enough, I’m very squeamish when it comes to blood,” said Dobrev, who noted that The Ring and the Saw movies “terrify” her. “Even on set, there was a scene I had to do where I cut my wrist on camera and it took every little bit of energy and strength that I had because your veins are so exposed. Every person is so fragile and it’s so easy to get hurt, it just freaks me out.”

Her Vampire Diaries co-star Ian Somerhalder agrees with Featherston on Candyman.

“I don’t watch that much scary stuff now, but when I was a kid the Freddy Krueger movies and Candyman used to scare the s*** out of me,” he said. “We’re adults now and it still holds up.”

Queen Sophie Anne dances the "Time Warp" with a " jump to the left and then a step to the right"

Last night, to celebrate the 35th anniversary of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, producer Lou Adler called in a few favors to get stars like Jack Nicholson, Danny DeVito, Evan Rachel Wood, Lea Michele, Matthew Morrison, George Lopez, and Jorge Garcia (along with original cast members Barry Bostwick and Tim Curry) to perform in an all-star, Kenny Ortega–directed tribute to Rocky to benefit Paul Newman's Painted Turtle charity, which provides a camp for seriously ill children. After the show, we spoke with True Blood star Wood, who told us that her casting as Magenta in the Rocky tribute was something of a coincidence: "This was going to be my costume for Halloween, and then they asked me to do this," she said. "I can't believe this is my real hair."

But when will she get back to work on True Blood? we asked. "We're filming again in November, so I'm going to be back," she said. "It's one of the most fun shows I've ever worked on. I just want to know what happens." Then: "That set is just a love fest," said Wood, who last year was rumored to be seeing co-star Alexander Skarsgard. "I've even been there myself, so there you go. I did date one of the cast members already, so I'm done."

Still, she's not ruling anything out on the set of her next movie, George Clooney's Ides of March: "It's going to be amazing," she told us. "We're going to start shooting in February. My character gets herself into a bit of a predicament with a politician, who's played by Ryan Gosling, so I'm very excited. I've had a total crush on him forever."


Vampire Sex !

Ladies and gentlemen of consenting age, an announcement: Traditional forms of lovemaking are out. Vampire sex is in.

From television (HBO's "True Blood," The CW's "Vampire Diaries," ABC's "The Gates") and movies (the oh-so-profitable "Twilight" series) to literature (Google "vampire books," get approximately 44,900,000 results), vampires and their signature form of sex have sunk their teeth into pop culture (apologies) in a major way.

It's even bled into (sorry, again) entities outside the vampire oeuvre. Ted Danson's character dabbled in vampire role-play in a recent episode of HBO's "Bored to Death;" Kanye West raps "I've gotta feel you, bite your neck to get

Ryan Kwanten cooks Italian Osso Bucco on MARTHA STEWART SHOW

Make no bones about it, Martha was smitten in the kitchen during today’s bone-themed edition of THE MARTHA STEWART SHOW (Hallmark Channel, 10 AM ET/9 AM C – same day encore airing, 2 PM ET/next day airing, 1 PM ET) when True Blood's steamy  star   stopped by to prepare a traditional Italian Osso Bucco dish. Although Ryan wasn’t stripped down to his usual bare bones today, as is the case on the set of his hit HBO series, he definitely sent chills up Martha’s spine!

While chatting about Ryan’s new bone-tingling movie, “Red Hill”, Martha repeatedly uttered “you look really good”, and well, he did! Ryan felt very comfortable, as if Martha had invited him over to her house for dinner. Once she got Ryan to take his hands out of his pockets, Martha assured him she’d have him do something that “makes your hands messy.” “Get me dirty!”- he fired back.

Soundbites from Ryan’s segment are pasted below and a photo of Martha and Ryan cooking Osso Bucco is attached. Credit: David Russell/The Martha Stewart Show.

True Blood Star Tackles Charles Manson Bio-Pic

Wow !

Ryan Kwanten is moving from "True Blood" to bloodthirsty.
The often shirtless actor is gearing up to play notorious killer Charles Manson in an upcoming film called "The Family," he said at the press day for his new film, "Red Hill," a nouveau spaghetti western set in the Australian high country.
Kwanten said the new role is part of the next phase in his career, one that allows him a bit more creative control over some of his future projects. In addition to playing the Helter Skelter psycho, Kwanten's upcoming projects include next year's satirical self-help book "The G Strategy" and a handful of acting jobs and upcoming hyphenate turns as actor-producer of the Australian film, "The Twenty-Something Survival Guide."

Interviewed: True Blood's Stephen Moyer

Set in the near future in a fictional Louisiana town called Bon Temps, True Blood is a sexy, romantic and gloriously Gothic world where vampires – not to mention werewolves, shapeshifters and telepaths – mix freely with humans. Moyer plays 173-year-old vampire Bill Compton who falls for a waitress, Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin).

In True Blood, vampires have emerged from the shadows thanks to the invention of mass-produced, synthetic blood, which means that they no longer need to prey on humans for their fix. Although for some, the lure of true blood is too hard to resist.
The series was created by Alan Ball and is based on the best-selling novels by Charlaine Harris. Moyer credits Ball, an Oscar winner for American Beauty who also created the highly acclaimed Six Feet Under, and his team of writers with making the very best cutting edge television that stands alongside great US shows such as Breaking Bad and Mad Men.

Interview with the vampires : The Salvatore brothers from Vampire Diaries

Nice little interview from Miami Herald with my favorite vampire brothers best line at the end when asked about who they are dating from Ian "

I tend not to discuss my personal life either because it's not really addressed that much. I don't think people care."
In case you haven't notice,  I DO NOT post photos of True Blood actors as they come out of drugstores, shops, try to eat lunch or go out with their families and friends . I hate this kind of stalker, gawker paparazzi and I won't be part of it. I'm happy to post any press event thing they attend but following them around day and night in their private lives is just awful and this blog won't post it. I believe we bloggers posting these photos only encourages this crazy intrusive TMZ kind of stuff.

Interview with the vampires

Edward who? When it comes to sexy vampires, the Twilight hunk has nothing on The Vampire Diaries' Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley, who paid a visit to Miami recently for a meet and greet at The Shops at Sunset Place.
No blood was spilled at the autograph signing, though the vampire sighting left some a little tone deaf. Hundreds of screaming girls attended the event for a chance to snap a pic of the Salvatore brothers. One lucky gal was even kissed on the hand by Somerhalder, and yes, more screams ensued.
We chatted with the hotties before they took the stage for a Q&A with fans. Not only are these two actors easy on the eye, they're also playful and funny.
How has life changed since you've been on the show?
Paul: I can't sum up into a short enough answer for you. But in one word, I'd have to say very surreal, in a good way.
