A millennia-long war between two immortal races is about to come to an end. Long ago, the Vampire Elite began capturing the immortals called the Amiti, attracted by their unique blood properties. Now most Amiti live in underground cells, forced to serve as vampires’ bloodstock. The few surviving free Amiti, preparing a final strike, have declared the Amiti Queen a traitor. Her execution makes possible the rise of a new Queen, her young daughter Arianna, who will inherit her mother’s mystical powers. Working with the Keepers of the Key, Arianna may be able to eliminate the vampires, once and for all, from the face of the earth. The new Queen is the last hope to save her dying race, and she’s ready to fight to the last drop of her blood. But the King of the Vampires has other plans. What neither expects is the passion that erupts between them.

This introductory volume offers an elegant analysis of the enduring appeal of the cinematic vampire. From Georges Méliès' early cinematic experiments to Twilight and Let the Right One In, the history of vampires in cinema can be organised by a handful of governing principles that help make sense of this movie monster's remarkable fecundity. Among these principles are that the cinematic vampire is invariably about sex and the vexed human relationship with technology, and that the vampire is always an overdetermined body condensing what a culture considers other. This volume includes in-depth studies of films including Powell's A Fool There Was, Franco's Vampyros Lesbos, Cronenberg's Rabid, Kümel's Daughters of Darkness, and Merhige's Shadow of the Vampire.

Leaving behind his life in Sunnydale and his relationship with Buffy Sunners, Angel atones for his sins by fighting for humanity in the dark seedy underworld of the superficially glamorous city of L.A. Angel Investigations has moved from the Hyperion Hotel to running Wolfram & Hart, but has their conviction to be champions survived the upheaval? In his comprehensive unofficial guide to Season Five of Angel's world, Keith Topping, bestselling author of Slayer, the unofficial guide to Buffy, looks at each episode in turn, considering the links and cross-references between Angel and Buffy, draws attention to logic flaws, points out numerous pop-culture references and discusses recurrent themes and coverage of Angel on the Internet. This essential guide to the final season of the popular show explores the world of Angel, Wesley, Gunn, Fred, Lorne and Spike as they fight their own personal demons and the loneliness of the Big City in their search for redemption.

What's Eating You?

Food and Horror on Screen

Author: Cynthia J. Miller,A. Bowdoin Van Riper

Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing USA

ISBN: 1501322419

Category: Performing Arts

Page: 384

View: 3021

Divided into four thematic sections, What's Eating You? explores the deeper significance of food on screen-the ways in which they reflect (or challenge) our deepest fears about consuming and being consumed. Among the questions it asks are: How do these films mock our taboos and unsettle our notions about the human condition? How do they critique our increasing focus on consumption? In what ways do they hold a mirror to our taken-for-granteds about food and humanity, asking if what we eat truly matters? Horror narratives routinely grasp those questions and spin them into nightmares. Monstrous “others” dine on forbidden fare; the tables of consumption are turned, and the consumer becomes the consumed. Overindulgence, as Le Grande Bouffe (1973) and Street Trash (1987) warn, can kill us, and occasionally, as films like The Stuff (1985) and Poultrygeist (2006) illustrate, our food fights back. From Blood Feast (1963) to Sweeney Todd (2007), motion pictures have reminded us that it is an “eat or be eaten” world.

Kaum bei Dalia Conner in Sicherheit, unterbreiten ihr ihre beiden Vampire, dass sie in den Krieg gegen die Halbhirne und Eisjäger ziehen wollen! Ohne sie! Kinder hüten und darauf lauern, dass Jack und Konga jede Nacht wieder heile zurück kämen? Nein, nicht mit Angel! Aber was sollte sie machen? Diese Entscheidung wurde ihr durch eine Vision abgenommen. Mit dieser Vision einhergehend musste Konga blankziehen und markerschütternde Wahrheiten auf den Tisch legen, denn Angel durfte ihrem Weg diesmal nicht allein folgen! Alle erfuhren von einer Vampirrasse, die sich ausschließlich von ganzen Vampiren nährte und zu diesem Zweck Menschen wandelte. Tja, was Konga noch offenbarte, ließ alle ahnen, hier wurde nur die Spitze des Eisberges angekratzt. Durch einen Hinterhalt gelang es obendrein einigen von Terrag zuvor gefangen gehaltenen geborenen Vampiren Angel zu entführen. Nun drehte Konga durch. Allerdings erfolglos. In seiner Not griff er nach dem letzten Strohhalm und suchte eine Person auf, von der er bis vor ein paar Jahren dachte, es gäbe sie nur in Märchen. Dann stand er in Robert M. Dragonbloods Nacht-Club und inmitten von etlichen Drachenwandlern. Pah! Es gab ja auch keine echten Vampire! Rob war nicht begeistert, denn aus Menschenangelegenheiten hielten sich die Dragots strikt heraus! Doch da hatte der Vater die Rechnung ohne den Sohn gemacht. Jason M.
