I vunt to zsuck ur bludd. I love � vampire tales, the very best of the films � being that old black and white one; silent film, made I think � in the 1920s: Nosferatu. That was so scary, because the actor looked as if he could be that vampire. When I first come to USA, at the age of 11, without understanding English language, it scared the spook out of me. That film didn't need the audio skills, and I could read English though not fluently, made it the more frightening.

People want to believe that there are still supernatural influences, both good and evil, in our lives. It does seem to be a fact that there are many unanswered mysteries in our world.
