The Top 50 Vampires Countdown! List of Crap #97
« on: October 21, 2016, 07:32:27 AM »
Let's let the good times roll and the blood run!

<a href="https://www.youtube.com/v/mzNsTlpwios" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://www.youtube.com/v/mzNsTlpwios</a>

That's right, we are having a very special party for vampires... and YOU'RE INVITED!  Which is kind of a big deal for vampires.  Because they can't get in unless... Oh, you get it?  OK.

Anyway, this is a party to celebrate the classiest monsters of all... vampires!  As we all know, the majority of vampires value status and this is a great place to network!  So now we are going to help you out by giving the rundown on the biggest guests in this party, their status, their history and other stuff.  It's quite a crew with a fair number of Draculas, but you knew that already.

I want to thank all 14 of our contributors who helped create this list.  Thanks to you, this is going to be a blast.  So grab some punch, start schmoozing and protect ya neck.

Amilyn

24 Points, 1 List, #2 Cole Stratton

Unbiography
Amilyn is the minion of the other vampire Lothos in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie.  He is seen as quite old as he as helping Lothos off slayers as far back as the 14th century.  He eventually traveled with Lothos to L.A. to try to kill Buffy Summers, only to end up killed by her.  Though it does take a while.

Dracula (The Monster Squad)

24 Points, 1 List, #2 CJones

Unbiography
Here's the first of many Draculas.  In this case, this one is after an amulet made of conentrated good with the intent of destroying it on the one day out of 100 years where it is vulnerable.  By doing this, he hopes to end the balance between good and evil and have the world plunge into darkness.  So he decides to get help from the Mummy, the Wolf Man, the Gill-Man and Frankenstein's Monster (the last one didn't work out for him, as it betrayed him).  He was soon opposed by a group of horror fans called the Monster Squad despite coming close to completing his goal, was eventually sucked into purgatory, never to escape.

Count.

Dracula taking out the cops is my favourite moment in the movie.  Sorry "Wolf Man's got nards".

Miriam Blaylock

24 Points, 1 List, #2 Tripe

Unbiography
Miriam Blaylock is one of the three protagonists of the novel and film The Hunger.  She's an immortal vampire who has lived since ancient Egypt.  Unlike vampires in a lot of other fiction, she was born a vampire to her mother Lamia (who is possibly THAT Lamia, if you are a fan of mythology).  Living so long has caused her much loneliness which she eases with the help of romantic companions of both genders whom she grants immortality to others through blood transfusions.  Unfortunately, though being a vampire means immortality, it doesn't halt the aging process, it merely slows it.  Which means many of her lovers are still alive but as living mummies, who she tries to protect by keeping in steel encased chests.

When the story begins, she notices her new lover, John, has begun to age much sooner and quicker than expected and she meets with a scientist named Sarah Roberts.  But when John starts to become too dangerous and erratic for he, Miriam begins to set her sights on Sarah as a potential new partner.

I would assume a lot of people had the same vampires on their lists but lower down so there will be a lot more multiple nominators on many of the entries.

Dracula (The Monster Squad)


Glad to see he's on the list. He's pretty badass, especially since this is a kids film.

The beginning of this list is the highlight of my day (other than the release of Civ 6)

Yeah, with 14 lists, I'm surprised I was the only one to think of him.

Mosquitoes

25 Points, 1 List, #1 CJones

Unbiography
Mosquitoes are small, midge-like flies that constitute the family Culicidae. Females of most species are ectoparasites, whose tube-like mouthparts (called a proboscis) pierce the hosts' skin to consume blood. The word "mosquito" (formed by mosco and diminutive -ito) is Spanish for "little fly". Thousands of species feed on the blood of various kinds of hosts, mainly vertebrates, including mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and even some kinds of fish. Some mosquitoes also attack invertebrates, mainly other arthropods. Though the loss of blood is seldom of any importance to the victim, the saliva of the mosquito often causes an irritating rash that is a serious nuisance. Much more serious though, are the roles of many species of mosquitoes as vectors of diseases. In passing from host to host, some transmit extremely harmful infections such as malaria, yellow fever, Chikungunya, West Nile virus, dengue fever, filariasis, Zika virus and other arboviruses, rendering it the deadliest animal family in the world.

Typically, both male and female mosquitoes feed on nectar and plant juices, but in many species the mouthparts of the females are adapted for piercing the skin of animal hosts and sucking their blood as ectoparasites. In many species, the female needs to obtain nutrients from a blood meal before it can produce eggs, whereas in many other species, it can produce more eggs after a blood meal. A mosquito has a variety of ways of finding their prey, including chemical, visual, and heat sensors.  Both plant materials and blood are useful sources of energy in the form of sugars, and blood also supplies more concentrated nutrients, such as lipids, but the most important function of blood meals is to obtain proteins as materials for egg production.

The Master

26 Points, 2 List, #13 Johnny Unusual & Psycho Goatee

Unbiography
The leader of the cult the Order of Aurelius, the Master is the first major foe in the Buffy the Vampire TV series.  A truly ancient vampire, The Masters features have been permenantly deformed and he has gained powers that younger vampires aren't capable of.  60 years prior, he arrived in Sunnydale with his cult with the intent of using the Hellmouth that lies beneath, only to be trapped under the Earth, held back by a barrier that left him unable to escape.  Nonetheless, he uses various vampire followers to make trouble in Sunnydale once Buffy "the Vampire Slayer" Summers arrived in town.

The Master is, by Buffy standards, a classic vampire, though he has a dark sense of humour.  He's usually pretty cool-headed but is not above killing and mutilating those who fail him.  He is also extremely confident, in no small part to the prophecy that says he's going to kill the slayer.  Even when he dies, the Master makes a few notable appearances (usually in dreams or flashback) and even makes a comeback in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8 comic.

Jesús Gris

26 Points, 2 Lists #12 Fred Garvin

Unbiography
Jesús Gris is an elderly antiques dealer in the film Cronos.  After Jesús is injected with a mysterious liquid by a strange artifact, he began to regain his youth and energy.  However, he soon also discovers that he craves blood, becoming hopelessly addicted.  Soon, he also finds himself targeted by an old businessman named Dieter and his brutish son Angel, who have their own plans for the device Jesús has discovered. 

The artifact is a gold mechanical beetle with a stinging device.  It seems to have been created by an alchemist who dies in the movie's opening and contains a living insect inside that produces the solution that turns people into vampires.
