Origin of the Word "Vampire"?

Silly video about the origin of the word "vampire":

Questions? Quibbles? Controversies?


  1. Lol, I love how she snaps in and out of her normal speaking with her vampire seductress speaking as I recall Lucy doing right before her death when she asked her husband to come over and give her a kiss in which Bram Stoker mentioned she said in a way which they have never heard her speak. Thanks to Van Helsing, Arthur didn't get head bitten off, or a neck bite for that matter. Van Helsing definitely knows something that we all don't, or at least what the people of the victorian era didn't know upon first encountering this reading.

    1. Glad you liked the video. I've been hoping to show it in class, but we just haven't had the time :-/
