WS: Scars & Underworld 3: Rise of the Lycans

I'm not a big horror fan. Freddy gave me nightmares as a child and is the only still-scary horror creature today. Jason? Passe. Michael Myers? Only those original 2 were worth seeing and now not so much. Freddy, however, came in your dreams. You don't go to Crystal Lake, you don't live near an insane asylum where escapees aren't caught by the police. But you have to sleep.

But there's something about vampires & werewolves that has me reading and watching them over and over. Buffy & Angel. So so there. Read Twilight long before the movie. Adore L.A. Banks new werewolf series and even though vampires are kind of overcrowded at the moment, I still find myself drawn to them.

Tonight, I'm going to see Underworld 3: Rise of the Lycans. The first rocked, the second not so much. But this prequel looks excellent. We'll see about 7:40 tonight when the movie starts.

In the mean time, I'm finishing up Wicked Seductions: Scars and plotting out Wicked Seductions: Starlet. Tomorrow: writing Starlet and more plotting, this time of Book 3 in my Dark Desire of the Druids Series: Desert & Destiny. Gareth from Raven's story, (Dark Desire of the Druids I: Murder & Magick) finally gets his own story. Set in London and Egypt, this is going to be a fun book. The research alone is extensive, and if I put everything I learned into this story, it'd be a dissertation. Still, I'm looking forward to plotting it chapter-by-chapter,

Let us all know how the movie turned out. I'm drawn to vampire and werewolves too and even wrote a few vampire stories of my own.

Good luck with your plotting!

I hate horror movies--they scare me and then stay with me for months/years. But you're right, vampires and werewolves don't bother me much. I don't think of them as horror, I guess. Of the two, I like werewolves more, though. I adored Lupin in Harry Potter!

I'm not sure I like one over the other. Too many years of watching Buffy and Angel shows, I guess. At this particular moment, I'd say werewolves since they're not as overdone, but that could change. Like tomorrow.
