Akiba’s Trip First Memory Really Tearing it Up

A remastered version of the original Akiba’s Strip is coming in the form of Akiba’s Trip First Memory to modern consoles, bringing back all of the clothes-tearing action and moe absurdity that was so beloved of the first wacky release.

Bakemonogatari Manga Takes Passion for Breasts to a New Level

More extended dialogue and unnerving visuals are present in the Bakemonogatari manga as hero Koyomi talks further with vampiress Kissshot Acerola Orion Heart Under Blade, with the situation of Hanekawa’s breast groping leading into another breast-based moment, though one that readers were perhaps not expecting. The 114th chapter again pulls no punches when it comes […]

#TrackoftheDay: “You’re a Vampire”

One-Eyed DollUSA (2010) Image: Their Facebook. So we’re back after a giant tree down the street took out the power lines for a couple of days. We took the power company people who were working last night some Halloween candy and shortly thereafter–the power was back! A freakin’ Halloween miracle! So let’s get the day itself started properly. We do so with One-Eyed Doll from Texas. We’ve all been there, haven’t we? (I’m talking about the song now, not necessarily Texas.) In one ...

Dark Shadows' 12 major storylines

You've likely heard adults of a certain age nostalgically talking about rushing home every day from school in the 1960s/70s to watch Dark Shadows. I was one of them. If the timing was perfect, I could rush in from the bus stop and turn on the TV in the den just in time to hear the creepy opening theramin strains of the show's iconic intro It was campy and soapy AF, the sets moved, the boom mics were often caught in the shots, and actors frequently murdered their lines. — Read the...

Meet the Philanthropic Vampire Courts of Texas

Today I learned about the Houston Vampire Court and the Vampire Court of Dallas/Fort Worth, both member-driven organizations for "Sanguinarians" — humans who sustain themselves through blood (animal, or human) or by "draining" "psychic energies" from other humans. These are, perhaps unsurprisingly, largely off-shoots or goth and/or fetish subcultures, but there's something heartwarming about the sense of community they're able to build together. (Unless "heartwarming" is kind of ableist in this ...

The Night Stalker Was a Vampire Horror About the Power of Stating the Obvious

A protagonist’s utter unawareness about the supernatural danger they’re dealing with can oftentimes make horror-thriller films that much more enjoyable to watch.

Check your fear and get in gear — the VAN-PIRES are here!

The other day on Twitter, I asked people about their favorite weird 90s anthropomorphic animal-hero cartoons, for another project I'm working on. Someone skipped past the "animal" part of this question and shared this absolutely amazing gem of an opening credits sequence. Because this is a show about vans, that are also vampires, which live off of … gasoline, I guess? I have no recollection of Van-pires. I was a pretty vociferous consumer of kids CGI sci-fi stuff, but maybe I was too old by t...
