Some things I found interesting about the blog-a-thon.
- Plenty of Herzog but very little Murnau (except for a bunch of fleeting references) in regards to Nosferatu.
- The most frequently referenced film was Interview with the Vampire but it was rarely the main course and the references weren't usually favorable.
- Very few recent films were covered. Blade, Underworld, Van Helsing, etc... all but ignored. Is this because they all suck? (not in the good way)
- I thought I knew my vampire films but no... so many of these I MUST see now after reading these writeups (particularly Martin)
- Lots of films that have no vampires were namechecked. Titles as diverse as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II, Persona, Eraserhead, Apocalypse Now, The Green Berets, Blue Velvet, Marie Antoinette, Last Tango in Paris, and Witness popped up. But you'll have to read through the blog-a-thon to figure out why...
