VICE: Do you consume human blood? Arycin: I haven't ingested blood, but I'm definitely in the market. I'd like to think it's easier than I make it out to be. I know that New York has more of a front than Long Island, so it's more difficult for me. If human blood isn't available, can you feed on your own blood?

No, no, no, no. You never feed on your own blood. Rule number one. That doesn't do any good. To take when you have none, to take more of what you have less of, which can cause physical injury to your body. It's not good. So without human blood available, what do you feed on? I go with the cosmos. I spend the majority of the time studying the metaphysics about the universe and theoretical physics about how the universe functions.
That's where I go. It's a different form of energy, it's very high vibrational and smooth so it sustains you for longer, but I have to take it in like that. I can't just have one person; I would burn someone out in a day. They'd get sick.
Will people's energies affect the quality of their blood? Energy quality has to do with a lot of things. It has to do with emotions that the person is feeling. Generally if the person is feeling negative or looks at themselves with a very high ego, their energy will tend to be very muddled and it sometimes won't be the proper color that it's supposed to be. Muddled energy tends to look very greenish, yellow.
A lot of humans have it because of the human condition.

They want, they want, they want. Sometimes they want too much. VICE: Tell us about yourself. Do you consume human blood? Galatea: I am a modern vampire.
See a Problem?
I was awakened at a very early age. It is part of who I am. It's very beautiful, very spiritual. I do consume real human blood. Oh yes, I have read all the medical hoo-ha about no human having any medical or psychological need for blood. I personally, do not care what modern medicine or the psychiatric communities have to say about it. I know what I need to be healthy. I've tested the theory over and over for in excess of 20 years.
I know others like me. Frankly, the medical world can go to hell. I know what I am.
I am a Vampyress. I do not prey on the innocent. I don't go ripping people's throats out. I'm quite mature with what I do. I will only drink from consenting donors. How did you discover you were a vampire? My fascination with blood began as a young girl, during my first kiss. It has taken 95 years for a faithful adaptation of the novel "Dracula" to go before the cameras. According to Mr. Hart, the writer of "Bram Stoker's Dracula," which is scheduled to be released in November, "The book's eroticism has been hinted at, but never really shown. Hart began work on the project in after reading "The Annotated Dracula" by Mr.
Wolf with whom he once teamed for a "Dracula" script. Surprised by the depth of the Dracula story and the complexities of the title character a man who is in defiance of God , Mr. Hart shopped his scripts off and on over the years. The turning point came when the script was read by Winona Ryder, who in turn showed it to Mr. Coppola declined to be interviewed for this article. But Chuck Mulvehill, a producer of "Dracula," says Mr. Coppola became involved for both artistic and practical reasons. Filmed on sound stages over 14 weeks, Mr.

Coppola's movie will have special effects that are not enhanced by computers or camera trickery but will instead utilize trap doors, mirrors, fog machines and other gimmicks of yesteryear. The emphasis also promises to be on sensuality -- and sexuality. An R rating is expected. As Mr. Hart notes, "Dracula can make people commit sexual acts beyond their own imaginations -- and well beyond what society would permit. Not to be outdone, or intimidated, some film makers are working furiously to stake out a place for their vampire projects on the video shelves.
Among them is the Wichita, Kan. He is currently offering his completed film to video distributors, urging them to beat the rest of the competition to the marketplace. Jonker explains: "I see this as a race. After all, there are an awful lot of vampire movies happening. Of all the movie monsters, none can claim as many screen incarnations as the vampire. There have been more than films alone about Dracula and his assorted relations -- up to and including his dog. Rooted in mythology, vampires also have historical origins, notably the 15th-century Romanian prince Vlad The Impaler Tepes.
Among his notorious deeds: the impalement of thousands of invading Turks on wooden stakes. But it was the novel "Dracula," by the Irishman Bram Stoker, that immortalized the Count as the aristocrat of monsters. The Gothic noir, inspired in part by Vlad, first came to the screen as the unauthorized "Nosferatu" Germany, The story's official screen adaptation was Universal Pictures' "Dracula," starring the Hungarian actor Bela Lugosi reprising his Broadway stage role.
Advertised as "The strangest love story of all," "Dracula" was the studio's biggest money maker that year. It also made a star of Lugosi, who was forevermore linked to the role. In decades since, the legend of the famed Count has been explored in all manner of films. The British-made "Dracula" series starring Christopher Lee as the Count is admired for its locations, groundbreaking graphic content the violence was no longer implicit and sensuality.
The film began production in and was completed with the intention of being shown in American theaters.
A Morning Tale of Bloodlust, Vampires, and The Count!
It was shown in twelve theaters across the United States and received generally positive reception from American critics. Charlotte, a young woman, is abducted by Baron Meier Link, a vampire nobleman who is known not to harm humans needlessly. Charlotte's father, Elbourne, hires D, a dhampir , to find her and rescue her, and alternatively, kill her humanely if she's been turned into a vampire.
D has Elbourne double the payment, and agrees to search for Charlotte. At the same time, Charlotte's older brother hires another group of vampire hunters, the notorious Marcus brothers, composed of the leader Borgoff, a hulking man named Nolt, a blade master named Kyle, a physically disabled psychic named Grove and a woman named Leila who hunts vampires because of a personal grudge rather than for monetary gain.
The two parties D and the Marcus brothers race inexorably after Meier Link. However, Meier Link hires the mutant Barbarois; a group of lethal mercenary body guards. They consist of Caroline, a shape shifter ; Benge, a shadow manipulator; and Machira, a werewolf. Throughout the course of the film, two of the Marcus brothers, Nolt and Kyle, end up being killed by the mutant Barbarois, while Leila and Borgoff continue their search for Charlotte.
As the story progresses, Meier Link's abduction of Charlotte turns out to not be as it seemed, as it's revealed that Charlotte willingly ran away with Meier Link as his lover. Charlotte rightfully feared that no one would understand their relationship, with her a human and Link a vampire.
Bloodlust & Initiation
Throughout their search, and after both characters save each other from seeming death at separate points, D has a conversation with Leila, where she reveals that she hunts vampires because a vampire killed her mother. D tells her that he hunts vampires as he has no other choice as a dhampir, and she can have a life that someone like him could never have; the life of a normal human. Leila, having not exactly taken the life of a normal human, instead being a monster hunter, fears that no one will mourn her death when that time comes.
She make a pact with D, that if either one of them survives, the survivor will bring flowers to the other's grave.

D admits that he does not expect himself to survive the bounty hunt, after coming so close to death. Carmilla, a ghost of a vampire who died long ago, reigned supreme within the Castle of Chaythe when vampires were all-powerful and unchallenged. However, her bloodlust was so strong that D's father, an ancient, noble vampire king, killed her in disgust. Carmilla promises Meier Link and Charlotte travel to a far away city known as the City of The Night, where they can be free to love each other, which they will travel to in a large and ancient spaceship-like structure hidden beneath the Castle of Chaythe.
Carmilla explains that most ancient castles had similar ships hidden within them, and that back when vampires reigned supreme, these ships weren't an uncommon means for vampires to travel to far regions. Carmilla notes that the ship is old and hasn't flown in a long time, and that she doesn't know if the ship will fly safely, but that Meier Link and Charlotte are allowed to take that risk, if they so wish.
D and the remaining Marcus brothers separately trail Meier Link to the Castle of Chaythe, and as they enter the castle in their search for Charlotte, Carmilla plays psychological tricks on them.
