Interview With a Real-Life Vampire: Why Drinking Blood isn't Like in Hollywood


This article for The Guardian delves into the lives of “real vampires” living amongst us. Find an excerpt below, then the full story here:

“Drinking blood isn’t what Hollywood makes it out to be, according to real-life vampires. First of all, there’s no biting – that’s neither safe nor sanitary – and with too many vital arteries, the neck isn’t the favored spot. Transactions aren’t carnages leaving the victim lifeless behind in a dark alley, and nor do vampires sleep in coffins or burn in daylight. They’re generally cool with garlic. Most of them don’t even have fangs.”
