I was bored and got to thinking (which is a dangerious thing which usually ends in pain and mysery...or a circus monkey getting dressed up in stalkings) and I came upon the idea that Vampires may just be a higher class of Zombies....

Things in common:
Undead
Cravings (one for blood other for anything living or recently dead)
Sneakly little bastards
Infectious bite

Things not in common:
Intelegence
Easy of mobility
Appearance

Really, there's not much to seperate them. Also, could Frankenstien's monster be considered a zombie!

Discus!

I don't think vampires are a higher class of zombie.

Vampires retain their cognitive faculties and their skin doesn't rot. Also, vampires rise immediately upon death while zombies are known to rise weeks or even years later.

The Frankenstein Monster is an interesting thought. That one I could buy into.

So is javelin toss! I mean.....don't do that. Or if you do, make sure there's a videographer.

As for zombies, I don't buy it. Vampires are intelligent, sensitive to light, can transform. Zombies vary from movie to movie, but are almost universally simple-minded, un-dead humans. These seem to be major differences that could easily be differences in DNA, making them different entities. They both originate from humans, so they're probably closely related. Also, zombies clearly die and are reborn with their death-inducing injuries, vampires don't clearly die, they just mutate.

In my experience this has yet to cause bodily harm, only structural harm. Javelin holes in the wall.

Frank N. Stein is not a zombie. He is reanimated human tissue much like an earthworm that's been cut in 2. Frank did not crave human flesh and attempted communication. His only fear was fire.
Zombies have no fear since they have no brraaaiiiiiinnss!!! Zombies are anerobic life forms. They can survive on the bottom of a pond or lake and grab unsuspecting victims as they swim by or, like some frogs, they wait until the lake dries up then wander off to find food. They tend to be attracted to sounds. They lack coordination yet make up for it with dogged determination.
Vampirics are the spawn of the host Vampire and live in a state between life and death. They live only on the blood of an animal, preferably human but can survive on BMC blood also. They have almost all human functions including lust and nap time. They also have cunning and strategy.

Non-sense. Vampires can be made from humans but they can also mate with each other to create pure blooded vampires. I have never seen pure blooded zombies, except in "I am Legend" and those weren't really even zombies.

totally different and vampires are way cooler, even if they are going mainstream now.

Speaking of Zombies. It has happened again. Big joke, huh? It is all fun and games until it really happens. Then no one will heed the warning.
