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

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.
