Why Vampire Never Die

Dalphee Champagne

English 24


  In the article “Why Vampire Never Die” by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan, discuss and explain the reason why vampire are immortal and will continue to be a big part in today’s modern society and maybe continue still the of human existence is the way that it caught human attention in a way that it has a lot of points that related to human in real life most importantly in two main issues; vampire are either romantic heroes or monsters. Vampire mutate and lives in the dark, most widely known vampire was “Dracula” birthed by Bran stoker in 1897.  Why till this day human are still interested in “Why Vampire Never Die” rather it is the movie or the book? According to authors (381), “We enthrone the deadly virus in the very same way that ‘Dracula’ allowed the British public to believe in monster”. For example, in Why We Crave Horror Movies” by Stephen King, He thinks that we all, as human being have a little monster in each and every one of us. Which attracting us to like scary movie or story where we find pleasure or entertainment us mentally and sometimes emotionally.

  The author stated the idea of vampires always being alive satisfies our desire to always remain young and not grow old.  Because naturally, human crave those kind of entertainments.            Vampire emphasizes the eternal in human. Vampires believed to be primates cannibals. Even it is a myth, some people actually practice that same path and become a reality in their lives.        Just as modern man benefits from science, Dracula himself has benefit and become a reality to human. For example, (CNN) -- If left up to audiences, the trend of the undead will never die. A few shows on TV, have become the top viewers interest The "Twilight" saga earned six nominations; "True  Blood" and "Vampire Diaries" got two each; Horror hit "Paranormal Activity" earned a nomination in the independent movie category. To prove the authors argument, that is the human behavior toward these scary movies and shows.
In question #4. Culture manifestation to me would have be Vampire because vampires are the most popular in our world and more acceptable in our society is because “True Blood" and "Vampire Diaries have become the most popular shows on television. According to Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan use SciFi  make vampire more useful and interesting in our pop culture. They have the ability of mental and sexual control.



  1. Some good summarizing here, Dalphee, but why are you quoting CNN and bringing in King?

    Also, the question was really asking what non-vampire, cultural manifestations you were aware of :-)
