Vamp or Not?

Vamp or Not? is the section of the blog where I look at films or books that might be vampire genre or are rumoured to be so and try to determine whether I believe they should be classed as such. Some may disagree with my analysis, but that is the beauty of the genre.

One I definately reccommed for the list is 'Horror Express' with Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing, Telly Savalas and Helga Line.

It's a very well paced sci-fi-tinged thriller plus it's great to see Lee and Cushing (both as heroes) facing a common enemy; a 'mind-sucking' intergalatic being.
