    i like to reach vampire novels and romance novels mostly...anything gothic and evil really with a subgenre of romance or comedy.

    im kind of dark when it comes to what i read and my writing style,....but i also like medieval fiction and stuff like that...what about you?

    this may sound a little tripe...but my favourite horror movie is "Scream". I cant help but really love the scream empire. It was a great set of movies. And what about you?

    Sounds impressive.
    I used to love watching Vampire movies.
    I still think Ann Rice's Interview with the Vampire is a classic.

    And I loved Queen Of The Damned. (Though I think I am the only human alive that does lol)

    Sometimes some of the best stories are Vampirical well the well written ones are lol

    Kool another fan of Queen Of the Damned. We should start a fan club now. It will be huge and have the grand scale amount of two members lmao.


    Yeah Im not a big fan of Anne Rice's either. But I did like the Lestat story called tale of the body thief I thought that was a good book.

    As for Vampiric horror I like Brian Lumley's Necroscope series.
    And I think H.P. Lovecraft is an amazing writer way ahead of his time and very graphic.

    never heard of them but it looks like im going to be looking for some new books to read now, i think ill go and read them see what they're like. Are there anything other books that you recomand that i read while im at it?

    If you like vampire stuff you should read this book called Innocent or Innocence, i should go find out who writes it, cause its a really good book...its in first person so its kind of strange to read but trust me you wont be able to put it down!

    I'm more of a Romero fan. I enjoyed all the Dead movies. I also LOVED Shaun of the Dead. I thought it was a really good mix of multiple movie genres.

    Aside from the 'Hollywood' type horror movies I also enjoy cheesy B movies like Squirm, White Zombie, Night of the Dead, etc. I actually just watched Night of the Dead for the first time last night. I busted out laughing when a zombie did a cartwheel. I don't think it could have been cheesier.

    HP Lovecraft books may be old But trust me if you really like horror his books are really good and really well written and very Graphic whatever loomed in this guys head was bizzare. All his books are way ahead of their time. And some of them I could swear were only written a few years ago.

    The link below will take you to see all you need to know.

    As For Brian Lumley I recommend the necroscope series. Very dark very gothic and very Vampiric.
    The link below will take you to see all you need to know.
