He could have whacked up some werewolves, too, with that silver blade. I had heard the book was very good, but really never had time to get to it. I liked the trailers to the film, and I was very pleased while watching it. The vamps were actually pretty scary. Fun stuff. I enjoyed Dark Shadows, but this takes the best Vampire prize for the summer, to me. Once this hits DVD and the premium channels, it's going to pick up a lot of fans.
