Two new movie trailers and some ghostly links
I added director Park Chan-wook's Korean vampire movie Thirst to my list of upcoming vampire films last week, and I learned from Vampire Wire that the film will be premiering at Cannes. Thirst sounds like another classy, potentially award-winning vampire flick, which is always exciting (see my previous post about vamps and Oscars). Here's the trailer:
If you prefer a little more gore in your vampire tales, head over to Vampire Movies to see the graphically bloody trailer for Japanese director Yoshihiro Nishimura's Vampire Girl vs. Frankenstein Girl.
I've been revamping my seance novel lately, so my mind has been on ghosts and historical settings. Coincidentally, the website Haunted San Diego gave a shout out to Suburban Vampire, so I'll return the favor here. I'm a former San Diegan and my seance novel takes place in the city, so the site intrigues me to no end, but the paranormal news offered over there extends beyond Southern California hauntings. They offer a "daily digest of investigations, book and movie reviews, news and information," so be sure to check it out if the topic of ghosts interests you.
On the historical end, SciFiGuy mentioned SteamPunk Magazine on his blog. If you're a fan of the genre--or if you have no idea what Steampunk is all about--you'll find everything you could possibly want at the magazine's homepage.
Last but (hopefully) not least, I revised my own web page that discusses Harry Houdini's link to seances. I created the page to tie in with my novel Voices Airy, which is the book I'm now turning into the young adult tale, The Spirit Seller (for those of you who helped me with the working title, that's the name I'm keeping for now. Thanks for your input!).
