I'm glad you could join me here today. Our lesson this week deals with differentiating vampires from other creatures of the supernatural.

Now this, class, is a vampire:

This though is a fairy:

One is a fierce vampire and the other is a sensitive girly-man-want-to-be vampire.
It's an easy task to identify the actual vamp from the wanna-be-vamp.

How do you explain the strange and unusual existential of the Bunnicula? The rabbit that suck all the juice out of the vegetables in return that those vegetables turns into white unless things to eat. Do you ever meet Chester the cat and Harold the dog?


Your question requires more research.



The workings of recombinant DNA in these matters is still not fully understood.

So, do werewolves look like Oliver Reed in "Curse of the Werewolf" or more like CGI mini-van-sized malamutes?


No, werewolves are not van-sized. While the effects of recombinant DNA are not fully understood and the effects of the application of wolf bane vary widely from individual to individual (which is not surprising since we as humans vary widely from individual to individual), careful observation of such effects suggests four hard and fast commonalities:

1. Werewolves are man sized. How big they are tends to be largely a function of the underlying human subject.

2. Like humans they are bipedal.

3. They are generally flat-faced. They do not have elongated wolf-like snouts. Human DNA seems to be dominant when it comes to general skull shape.

4. Typically werewolves still keep at least their pants on when subjected to the light of a full moon. Werewolves seem to be asexual. They don't mate with their victims; they just tear them apart.

Here from my studies are some good examples of werewolves:

Unless they are American Werewolves living in London.  Then apparently, they become entirely wolflike quadropeds.  Obviously Henry Hull was not a Yank.

I suspect some modern cinematic flight of fancy when it comes to wolf-like quadropeds. Decades of observation dating back to the nineteenth century have not revealed any such werewolfs. I'm open to the possibility that wolflike quadropeds may exist in some nearly forgotten corner of the globe but I'm surmising that these would not actually be werewolves.

If I can bring he subject back to vampires again. I remember when Twilight came out. Thie slogan was "things will never be the same again". I remember getting pretty mad over it.  I told people..what, what will never be the same again? Seriously...Things were never the same again after Frankenstein, The Wolfman, The Mummy, Dracula, The Creature From The Black Lagoon. Then Psycho, Night of the Living Dead, Halloween, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm street etc.. Some of these films created the genre. Some created new sub genres. What the hell is this teenage, teeny bopper, candy coated, love story film going to change.. Oh ya, maybe it will change something.. maybe worsen the already declining image of the vampire. I doubt I will walk into a collectible store and see any stuff from this films 30-50 years down the road. Also, I doubt it would have any real value.

I just turned 57.  In fifty years, when I'm 107, I'll simply be grateful, if I can walk into a collectible store, on my own two feet.

lol..I didn't even think of that. I am 43. I might still be able make it in there in my 80's and 90's. I met George A Romero about 2 1/2 years ago at a convention. I think he is in his mid to late 80's.

Today's lesson deals with telling Godzilla apart from shoddy imitators.

These are all just large lizards:









Though in an atypical urban setting, this is just another overgrown lizard:



But this now is Godzilla!







Note both the upright posture and the tail drag. Not apparent from the pictures are radioactive breath and cell regeneration/recuperation abilities completely beyond any previously imagined scale which make Godzilla nearly invulnerable to conventional weapons.

Thanks for shedding some light on the Werewolves and Godzilla controversy, Professor.

Werewolves have been depicted as both bipedal and quadrupedal for centuries!  In no way are they a fabrication of Hollywood......be it modern or classic cinema, although Bela's wolf form is clearly a quadruped in The Wolf Man!

Bela though was a vampire. Being cast against type as a werewolf would I'm sure prompt many a man to slump to all fours.

Back to Godzilla, is there any truth to the "asexual" angle?  Thanks, Prof!
