It is no secret that everyone loves Vampires these days - not only has the age old Vampire myth been modernised in literature - the most popular Vampire titles today include the Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice, the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer and Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead, but also the Vampire legend is being reinvented for a new generation in feature film and television.
Currently there are a range of anticipated Vampire themed high profile film projects, such as Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (2012) directed by Timur Bekmambetov, Dark Shadows (2012) directed by Tim Burton and Innocence (2012) directed by Hilary Brougher. In the coming months we can look forward to the forthcoming remake of Fright Night (2011), directed by Craig Gillespie and starring Anton Yelchin, Colin Farrell and David Tennant.
Beginning at 7pm, True Blood: Thirsty for More, will be hosted by award winning Australian writer Emily Maguire, Robert Jan of Triple R and Helena Jankowski of Siren MPS: Makeup, Prosthetics, SFX Makeup. The three esteemed hosts will discuss the previous seasons of True Blood in depth, so this is night designed for True Blood aficionados.
