Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: - - - - - - - - «Vampires. Since the times of ancient Egypt, cultures have whispered terrifying tales of undead monsters that feed on the blood of the living. The legend spawned by the Vlad the Impaler and made famous by Bram Stoker's Dracula has taken on a life of its own. While most people believe that vampires are the stuff of horror movies, there are people who call themselves vampires and live their lives accordingly. The Vampire Mith introduces two such people, Nicholas Strathloch and Catrina Coffin. Nicholas says he comes from a long line of vampires and that vampirism is his religion. Catrina simply enjoys the lifestyle, including sleeping in a coffin, only going out at night, and drinking donors' blood. Strathloch solves the problem of blood with a live-in donor, who shares his feelings in this program. While Nicholas and Catrina offer an intimate portrait of life as 20th century vampires, skeptics claim that their practices are examples of a sex fetish or a psychological response to abuse. Yet others believe. THE VAMPIRE MYTH investigates both sides and traces the history of this bizarre phenomenon with open eyes. Get skeptical opinions from theologians, psychologists and others eager to puncture the vampire mystique. Learn how even today the seductive vampire persona continues to exert its unearthly influence amid our high-tech, supposedly rational world».
