    "One of the classic vampire books, and the movie based on it is very good. Definitely something you'll want to read."

DID YOU KNOW?

Today's modern conception of monsters was born from traditional European beliefs? In particular, the idea that the deceased could rise from the dead and harm the living. No monster better exemplifies this than vampires. There was a lot of misunderstanding with how dead bodies would decompose. A corpse's skin would shrink making it seem like the teeth and fingernails have grown longer. As internal organs break down, a dark liquid can leak out from the nose and mouth. It made it seem like the corpse had been drinking blood. Vampires are synonymous with deceases and plague that have occurred throughout history. Tales of vampires were so widespread that even the Vatican intervened. Pope Benedict XIV declared that vampires were "fallacious fictions of human fantasy". Maria Theresa, the only woman to have ruled of Hapsburg also had words of her own. She condemned belief in vampires as nothing more than "superstition and fraud".

Vampires found their way into English literature by the early 1800s. This paved the way to the fictional characters to be born as we know them today. Modern society celebrates vampires than fear them. It's seen with Hollywood depicts these creatures in the vampire movies. In fact, one of the best games that defined a generation of games in the 80s and 90s was a game called Castlevania. They drew inspiration from the various legends of old such as the idea of vampire hunters. It let players experience becoming the protagonists in their own horror adventure. Facing off with none other than Count Dracula himself.

    "Part of what makes "Cronos" so enjoyable to watch is the sheer amount of fun del Toro and Luppi clearly had making it. It's an easy-going horror movie, if such a thing can actually exist, and the tameness of all the gore and violence makes it very accessible and probably a good place to enter the genre."
