I was obsessed with vampires when I was 13 or 14.
America is obsessed with youth. We all want to look young forever, and vampires do. They are caught in their prime, if that's when they've been turned. And they'll be that way forever.
I think that my vampires in general were influenced by my being allowed to watch the Hammer vampire films. Vampire Circus, also shown as Circus of Fear, was one of those movies.
I think with vampires, you can't really go wrong. For generations, vampires have been a hit because they're unobtainable, mysterious, sensual, dangerous, kind of sexy.
It was this weird confrontation of these two delicious flavors that got me consciously or subconsciously combining Lincoln and vampires as an observational in-joke with myself.
All writers are vampires.
Twilight' has a supernatural reference to it with werewolves and vampires. 'Harry Potter' has magic. 'The Hunger Games' is about real people put into extreme situations and circumstances.
Vampires, werewolves, fallen angels and fairies lurk in the shadows, their intentions far from honorable.
I think that vampires are sexy. The idea of them being untouchable has been really exciting for people.
When I was working on 'Vampires Suck,' I must have watched 'Twilight' and 'New Moon' literally almost every day.
Nowadays, everyone broadcasts everything about their life - I think vampires are really sexy because there's so much that you don't know about them. There's a lot of mystery.
I supply the music for Vampires, which is a new series that's coming out.
I do enjoy Gothic fiction or books about zombies if they are well written and I like vampires.
Vampires to me have always been very sexy.
There is a certain swagger with vampires.
