Vampire Mondays: E.Cameron Stacy






Viva la Vampires!

Like mosquitoes, leeches, and needles, the vampire has ‘stuck around’ for centuries and will continue to live on. Something about a good bloodsucker story always ‘hooks’ me, doesn’t it you? I mean, is it just me, or do you also get all giddy to think about your next visit to the doctor and getting punctured by a hypodermic?

Thank you, Lynda, for inviting me to pipe in about the longevity of vampires. Considering the success of your Vampire Shrink series, it’s an honor to be here. So I’ll try to behave now and seriously deconstruct our attraction to the great grave escape artist.

Actually, has the vampire endured because of the immortality thing? Yeah, that’s probably it—my wager anyway. The idea of transcending the big doomsday by merely enjoying libations made of some poor bystander’s corpuscles has got to be the reason we keep coming back for more vampire stories. It’s impossible to resist this premise. When one takes into account that eternal life has been the theme of many epics, not just horror, it makes perfect sense that the nosferatu emerged as one of the most memorable characters.

Of course, as the vampire continues to survive the ages, it will be reinvented. Like Anne Rice is known for coining the sympathetic vampire story written in the undead’s point of view, some bold new voice will take the mythological creature in an unforeseen direction that will strike a chord thus entrancing a whole new flood of believers.

Good stories never die. That’s the real reason old V is timeless. As long as each generation catches wind of this night stalker, they’ll hunger for all the chilling, thrilling tales about it. And filmmakers, novelists, or even old uncles around the campfire will gladly deliver their spin on the very same historic folklore that spawned Dracula.

E.c.Stacy (E. Cameron Stacy) has been accused of coming from another galaxy. A horror aficionado, streaker, bon vivant, she lives with her fam in Colorado.

I know I have always been fascinated, entranced, enthralled seduced by the allure of vampires. What could be sexier?? I mean anyone can walk around in the daylight, right? It takes a real manpire to captivate your nights and make you long for the sun to go down and actually beg to have his big ole fangs sunk in your sweet flesh. Really, who wouldn't appreciate that?!! :)

Anyone ever here the theory vamp stories have always been around, but they get big when sex and death are heavily equated. So when Dracula came out, sex could very well involve syph and therefore death. Vamps reared their heads again starting in the eighties and Anne Rice when AIDS got into swing. Though the therapies have obviously gotten better, we still live in an age when having (unprotected) sex could possibly kill you. Vamps are death and sex incarnate. They seduce you to death.
