B-Sol of The Vault of Horror has tagged yours truly in a meme of a different kind, one that is based on images from cinema. Specifically, the meme is one in which bloggers are urged to come up with a series of screen grabs, all focusing on a specific theme.
It's been making the rounds, and I'm rather psyched to participate. It stemmed from a few other bloggers, Checking on my Sausages, Lazy Thoughts From a Boomer, and the stellar John Kenneth Muir's Reflections on Film/TV. Be sure to check all those memes out as well.

Of course my tastes run to horror, as does the taste of the other four chosen bloggers on The Vault of Horror, who are all sure to have very interesting themes as well! My theme, predictably, is vampires - but not just the undead in general, I'm focusing on the bite.
That nasty yet erotic, frightening nevertheless titillating, vampire bite.
Join me for a taste.

Near Dark (1987)

Vampyres (1974)

Salem's Lot (1979)

Vamp (1986)

Now if you've already checked out The Vault of Horror, then you'll know that participants are, in turn, asked to pick five blogs to pass on the meme to, so I've chosen the following five:

Go forth and spread the love!

Awesome Christine! My wife and I are packing up our house this weekend and moving out on Tues. Hopefully I can get in a post before then. I have a groovy idea!

Great choice and way to show some love for Subspecies! One thing that saddens me is that I still have yet to see Shadow of the Vampire, despite wanting to for long time.
