Final Projection Proposal
For my final project I plan on comparing the vampires in Interview with the Vampire, Blacula and Twilight vampires. I want to show how the vampires in Interview and Twilight portray similar qualities as far as charisma and charm. Also how both vampires "live" as a family and how they must pretend to be something that they aren't which is alive. I also want to compare and contrast the different myths that are shown with in both books. In regard to Blacula this is a film that I thought would be a good throw in to compare and contrast the same ideas of the charm of a vampire as well as the items that make them weaken. I think this may be a little trickly trying to compare Blacula because this sort of film is called a blaxploitation, which is not as a serious theme as the other two books are. But I am up for the challenge and I think all of these would offer some really information and insight onto what people perceive as a vampire. Also I like the fact that most vampires are generally caucasian and in Blaucula the vampire is Black which is a completely different spin all together.
