This is the first time in a really long time when vampires actually looked scary. Don't get me wrong, I love Interview With the Vampire, but I was not exactly afraid of Louis or Lestat.
My personal caption of the Interview With the Vampire pic:
Louis: Do you believe the nerve of those creatures?
Lestat: Utterly disgusting. Who allowed them here?
Louis: They make us look terrible.
Lestat: Only you, darling. Only you.
Compare the two photos (above and to the right). Vampires should look the part. Black trenchcoats. Dressed in all black like Damien from THE OMEN. They should not wear frilly, lacy shirts, and act all flamboyant. They should be vicious, ugly, and blood-soaked, IMHO. They should make us afraid with their black eyes and hearts. Louis and Lestat have beautiful teeth, even though you cannot tell in that photo. But take a look at the guy above, look at those nasty looking things called teeth. Would you want him to bite you? I thought not. LOL.
Vampires should strike fear in the hearts of everyone. Even though I love both of the movies mentioned in this post, I just prefer that my vampires not resemble Prince in his video, "When Doves Cry." See the link below.
