The vampire is an inextricable part of our culture and our collective unconscious because of the link it has with our most basic instincts. We are attracted to the darkness and the seduction of these creatures – an attraction that is as a part of our humanity as our need for security and belonging.
We see them as a being to be envied and pitied. They do all that we long to – hunt, feed, seduce and escape into the darkness. They are mysteries wrapped in cloaks of dreams and nightmares who come to us in the darkness and offer both pleasure and pain, eternal life and eternal sleep. The vampire is a part of our collective unconscious, offering us a safe way to explore our darkest fantasies and needs in a safe, lyrical manner that also appeals to the poetry of the human condition.
