Dracula Lives!

Bram Stroker's Dracula, Blade, Fright Night, The Forsaken and who could forget, the teenage cheerleader Buffy the Vampire Slayer!  These are just a few of the moives that portray the darker side of vampires and the crusaders that slay them.  I love most vampire movies because the "slayer" always wins in the end plunging a wood stake into the heart of the vampire (or something like that).   How many times have you heard "I want to suck your blood" on Halloween night with all the black caped vampires running around trick-or-treating?  From ages 2 - 22 you'll find these dark forbidden souls out for blood as darkness falls on Halloween night (or maybe it's just the candy they're after)... The vampire has been a staple of Halloween costumes forever.  I remember running around in my little princess costume when I was about seven years old and my older brother Brian dressed as Dracula with his long black plastic cape, white make up on his face and the scariest set of fangs I had ever seen.  Actually they were only the white plastic fangs that came with the costume that were way too big for his mouth, but for a girl at seven it was pretty scary.  Today the vampire has transpired into Dracula, King of Darkness waiting for nightfall to quench his bloodlust by preying on the living.  Ok, so it might not be that grim but you get my point.  The vampire costume has come a long way from the plastic cape and big white fangs of yesterday. Today on Halloween night, it's not only the "king" of darkness that walks upon the earth at nightfall, but the queen and lots of little vampires running around as well.  With just the right touch of Halloween makeup and a perfect fitting set of fangs these vampires are amazingly frightening (and not only to seven year olds)!
