Actually in the book "I Am Legend" they were vampires, they ****ed the movie up with the theatrical release because the whole point of the title that by being the last normal human and killing the vampires in the daytime he became the legend that vampire parents told their kids to scare them, like the boogeyman we have in our society. I never saw the DVD release, but apparently it has the proper ending where the vampires confront the scientist and he realizes that he was trying to "cure" the vampires wife, or something to that effect. They only changed the ending because test audiences preferred him going down in a fiery blaze against the mindless creatures, despite all the evidence that the vampires were intelligent (traps set to catch him, pet dogs, etc.) ****ing Hollywood. Check it.

Anyways, getting back to the main point, vampires are true immortality, which is why they are so ****ing cool. Sure you gotta drink blood and come out at night, but you are going to live forever, provided you don't **** up and get a stake in your heart. Zombies are a pale comparison, reanimated dead flesh with most of the mental faculties destroyed, i.e. not true immortality.

Nah, vampires are WAY cooler. Way gayer too, tho. Srsly, there's nothing more weirdly homoerotic than louis and lestat sucking each other's blood. But it was still awesome. Gay zombies are just impossible to watch.

What is this "proper ending" nonsense? The book ended in no such way.

They didn't base it off the book anyway, there have been a long list of movies based off that book that were really based off of each other. Apparently screen writers don't read novels.

I like Zombie movies. But, I love Vampire movies. I see the similarities between the two. But, Vampires operate on a whole different level than zombies.


But,What's the deal with the trend in modern Vampire movies making the Vampire into some sort of lovable character. I guess it's ok if their is a little romance in the vampire story. But let's not get carried away. My wife came home the other night with "Twilight". It seems that all of "the girls" at work were talking about it. Man... there's a couple hours of my life that would have been better used working on my collection of dryer lint. These Vampires were able to come out into the sunshine. Did they burst into flames and die? Noooooooooo..... they sparkled. They fricken sparkled! I kid you not.

I miss the good ole days when the vampire was the bad guy. Although, I'm really looking forward to season two of True Blood. Sure there's a love story, but these vampires can be some bad assed, cold blooded, blood suckers. Plus, there's some nice T&A too.

Vampires are a kind of greater undead that have a lot more abilities than your standard zombie. Also, vampires tend to be chaotic evil, as opposed to the neutral evil zombie.

Frankenstein's monster is a flesh golem, which is a construct and not an undead. While it has no Con score like undead, it has construct traits and not undead traits. While being composed of human parts, a cleric's turn undead ability does not affect flesh golems as they are powered through arcane means rather than negative energy.
