The film contains strong sexual content, but according to Pirie (2008) does more than parade nudity, rather the film, with its strong rain soaked vegetation, employs a vivid natureous scene, along with, the violent sexual nature of the vampires. The film, was later re-released as Daughters of Dracula, and many similarities can be drawn with the film, Dracula, in terms of its theme and in terms of its props, such as, according to Pirie (2008) the castle like house and the elegant goblets of wine. Within this film, one of the female vampires becomes so obsessed with her partner that she cannot keep her hands off him, aware that with every bite she takes; he becomes weaker and weaker, thus demonstrating the violent sexual nature of the vampire. Indeed, in one scene, another vampire girl is seen literally prising the lifeless figure of her partner from the arms of another vampire, who has drained his body of all
Whether we watch a horror film, play a video game were we have to kill the enemy, or race down a road at 160 mph while cops are chasing you, or even join a fantasy football or baseball team to fulfill that void in our lives. It doesn’t mean were crazy, were just trying to enjoy ourselves by doing something we cant or wont do in real life. The wife and I will sit and watch a horror film once or twice a month. She loves horror films, she likes the suspense, and surprises, and of course cuddling with me. When we watch horror movies the wife always asks if that can happen in real life.
The instance when Mina drinks from Dracula’s breast is the strongest example of this; where the reader to this point is accustomed to Dracula doing the “biting”, and suddenly Mina has the power to penetrate a male. Both Lucy and Mina, when they carry out a relationship with Dracula, become sexual beings, as opposed to when they are mortals and are forced to obey the social boundaries of their society. By expressing this sexuality, they become threatening to the men. Mina is intelligent, and despite the strong aversion she has to the “New Woman” or the “Modern Woman”, she is, in fact, a sort of modern woman; connected with modern ways, a schoolteacher with secretarial skills, she possesses a “man’s brain”. It is this very brain, which is ultimately used to aid in Dracula’s downfall.
Bram Stoker's book Dracula represents vampires in an evil aspect while Stephanie Meyer's Twilight represents in a lovely way. Stoker has rendered the reader to see the Count as physically strong and powerful, through Jonathan Harker and his confinement and Lucy Westenra and her failing health. Although the reader does not understand all the omniscient powers and control that Count Dracula possesses over people, they are brought to light through Dr Steward’s accounts of his patient R.M. Renfield. The ‘strange and sudden

Twilight has integrated itself as a part of modern teen culture in a way that could only be rivalled by the likes of Buffy. This is largely due to it’s relatable, yet aspirational characters and twisting love story. Audiences have such an affiliation with the character’s in Twilight, they have split into two rival camps; ‘Team Edward’ and ‘Team Jacob’. Based on the Twilight love triangle and the traditional rivalry between vampires and werewolves, fans separate between themselves into these teams often by wearing clothing offered by fansites, with phrases like “TEAM EDWARD (except when Jacob is shirtless)”. The Vampire Diaries website has a merchandise store, from which you can buy the full boxset of DVDs, mugs and t shirts with The Vampire Diaries logos and characters on.
(Preview Main Points) There are specific issues that I will discuss with you: human’s attitude toward vampirism, their eating habits, and finally their destruction of the planet earth. Main point #1 Humans attitude toward vampirism 1. It has come to a point in which humans no longer fear vampires as the lethal supernaturals that we were once regarded as. No, instead there are books on movies on blogs about vampires falling in love with humans and renouncing their human blood lust. This to me is absolutely preposterous!
Whether that be by their appearance, by the music they sing, or by the actions they do off the stage. A pop star by the name of Lady Gaga, who is known for being anything but conservative, recently appeared at an awards show dressed from head to toe in meat. Some critics see the stunt as disrespectful and uncalled for, but I see it as a way to get attention, and attention she did receive. Stefani Germanotta, also known as Lady Gaga was born in Yokers, New York. She learned to play the piano by ear at the age of four, performed open mic nights at the age of fourteen, and was one of twenty people to gain early admission into New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts.
Throughout the development of horror cinema – the figure of the ‘vampire’ has changed and progressed dramatically. When thinking of the ‘classic’ figure of the ‘vampire’ – one of the first that comes to the minds of most is none other than Hammers Dracula (Horror of Dracula; 1958). The stereotypical judgments or thoughts towards the ‘classic’ vampire figure – in this case, Dracula – is most notably known to be from Transylvania. He seduces and lures his victims in order to suck blood for survival and also finding pleasure in the process of his kill. Ultimately, Dracula is portrayed as evil, a threat to society and a menace.
Some characteristics of Naturalism include character’s lives that are dictated by passion, heredity, or instinct, heroic actions, violent deaths, and a plot that has “chronicle of despair” (Campbell). Naturalism shows characteristics of instinct and passion; Burk shows passion when he discovers his love for the woods after John Thorton saves his life. Burk also shows instinct when he becomes the alpha of his dog pack and later when he reverts from being loyal to John Thorton back to being wolf-like. Another situation where Buck shows instinct is when he fought with Spitz, “He fought by instinct but he could fight by head as well” (London 34.) This shows that Buck could judge when to use instinct or smarts.
