Vampires too have their own documentary

Who says that the vampires dont have a documentary?...No, we are not talking about Amazon vampire bats this time. A documentary called “Vampire Secrets” on vampire phenomena, history and life style displays an in depth panorama for the vampire fans. From the past to present, vampires are told on the basis of real life events and experts in the documentary directed by Diana Zaslaw. The story is illustrated by reenactment technique from Antique Greek, Mesopotamina, Chinese and Indian beliefs up to the recent events of Elizabeth Bathory, Rasputin, the vampire of Haidemaque and Vlad Dracul. The documentary tracks down the traces of vampires in literature from the works of Brams Stoker to Anne Rice’s chronicles. Many other modern things about vampires are also mentioned in the documentary such as role playing games like Vampire: the Masquerade, vampire undergrounds, gothic sub-culture and psychic vampirism. There’s also the still unsolved mystery of Susan Walsh from New Jersey who got dissappeared while searching for the Manhattan vampire in July 16, 1996. The documentary which also contains opinions of experts like the research writer Katherine Ramsland, the American president of Dracula Society J. Gordon Melton, famous fang designer and well-known vampirologist Dr. Thomas Ganza, stands as an archive for the vampire fans.
