Episode 28: Undead Science

Let’s be real for a moment: you’re only here because Idris Elba is in it, aren’t you? Well regardless we’re glad you’ve tuned into Ultraviolet, a six episode BBC series from the 90s with a very scientific and police procedural approach to vampires. Think The Bill with vampires. And that guy from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. But a … Read More

Episode 27: Mullet-Sexual

Just when you thought teenagers couldn’t be even more asshole-ish, someone decided to give them fangs – and mullets. These vampires aren’t going to high school to pick up girls way younger than them – if they ever did set foot in a high school, it’d be to pause their motorbikes in a cool 80s pose before riding away after … Read More

Episode 26: Jesus Christ, Van Helsing!

Take the granddaddy of all vampire books, adding a director in desperate need of a hit and the screenwriter for Hook. Combine with actors who all think they are filming different movies, copious amounts of alcohol, and hot air balloon adventures. Finally top with operatic costumes, an unneeded romantic subplot, and a gorgeous score. And boobs. Lots of boobs. Congrats: … Read More

Episode 25: Skater Vamp

In the Iranian ghost-town of Bad Town, the living are trapped and the dead… skateboard? Described as the first “Persian-language American vampire western film”, A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night is made of so many more genres and so many more influences than even we could fit into a(n admittedly rather short) episode. Also, Dracula is high as [censored].

Episode 24: God Hates Fangs

What began as a paranormal mystery series by a cozy mystery writer became an HBO extravaganza, while our attempt at sticking to … Read More

Episode 23: I’m Afraid of American Vampires

How many times can you hear Ceilidh say “American Exceptionalism”? You’re about to find out, as the Bloodsucking Feminists discuss the rise of the Old West and Hollywood, the rape revenge fantasy (and why it’s always written by men and in the same way), lament women not being friends, and debate a new breed of vampire and how that plays … Read More

Episode 22: Franchise Bait

Everyone loves an origin story, right? Not the Bloodsucking Feminists, who in this case firmly believe that this is one origin story that should have remained untold. Be prepared for more talk about the Universal Monsters and the upcoming reboot (and how Dracula Untold failed to be a part of the latest attempt), how the film missed both opportunities in … Read More
