I have always loved Vampire movies. I scared myself so badly as a child that I could not go anywhere without wearing a cross for protection. Sometimes at night I slept with garlic under my pillow and my neck covered. I watched every new Vampire movie as soon as it was released.
Bela Lugosi, Christopher Lee, Brad Pitt, Tom Cruz, Sir Anthony Hopkins, George Hamilton. Handsome or ugly Vampires are always bad, but we love to watch them. The undead have come a very long way. The Vampires of old were pale handsome men in suits who would rise from their coffins after dark. The new age Vampires are fast, vicious and in most cases, very handsome.
I have to admit, I am a huge ‘True Blood’ fan. Not something to be taken seriously, but tremendous fun. Who couldn’t love Eric Northman?
I decided to do a little research for myself and discovered that Vampires of many different kinds do exist. Had I ever doubted it?
Wiki featured the article below, which I found interesting.
My favorite Vampire
Real Vampires are not immortal. They are not allergic to sunlight, silver, or garlic, or holy objects and a steak through the heart will kill anyone. Actually, a lot of vampires are Christian, so religion has nothing to do with vampirism. To get rid of the confusion, Vampires are completely human, except for a few traits. They tend to heal faster than humans and they need extra energy from a source other than food. Now when I say “need” I do not mean if they cannot get this extra energy that they will die.
Also, Vampirism is not a religion. A religion is a chosen lifestyle based on a certainGod and certain beliefs on that god. Vampires are born Vampires whether they like it or not. There is no choice in the matter. Vampires have no God they worship, and that includes satan (since a lot of people like to call us Satanists).
There are a few kinds of vampires.
Sanguine Vampires or the Element User Vampires. This is the most known type of Vampire. When most people hear the word Vampire they think bloodsuckers right? Well its true. Sanguine Vampires are the kind that drink blood. Unlike the myths, they do not stalk humans and kill them. They have specific human donors who are completely willing to what goes on between the Vampire and them.
Psychic (Psy) Vampires or the Powerful Vampires. A person who will prey on the life energies of others. They are the type which have the ability to compel, teleport, phantomism, magic, tellekenesis, manipulate energy and reading the heart. Some Psy Vampires don’t even know what they are or what they do. They tend to steal the energy around them without knowing it. When the awakening process occurs with a Psy Vampire, he/she will start to notice that he/she is doing such.

There are several methods a Psychic Vampire can use to gain energy. There are Emotional Vampires that use attention-getting behaviors to attract people’s attention before draining their emotional energy. There are Sexual Vampires which feed directly upon the sexual energy created by their partners during sex. There are Pranic Vampires which feed directly on human vital energy. They will pull the energy to them from across a room or they may drain it with a touch.
Whatever the trait of the Vampire, it’s all for the same purpose, to gain extra energy for themselves. They must feel their bodies do not create enough energy. Perhaps they feel they have a high spiritual metabolism and their body uses energy much more quickly than they can produce it. Every Vampire is different. Therefore every Vampire will have different traits and symptoms along with abilities.
Vampires or Zombies…….I’ll take Vampires any day.
