    In the movie blade the theme of othering holds a huge role in this film. Not only with Blade himself but also with the character Frost. Blade being a human vampire hybrid himself is the ultimate other. He hunts vampires because his mother was turned to a vampire (or he believed to have been killed) so he hunts them to take revenge and help humans. Even toward middle of the film (which can be found here: https://arizona.hosted.panopto.com/Panopto/Pages/Viewer.aspx?id=54741b31-211b-422a-933c-8a5da8bb7ea3) Frost tells Blade that humans would never accept a half-breed like him. For the reason that he is an animal of sorts, an outsider to the outsiders. Frost on the other hand is also made to feel like an outsider, which is why he wants to beco…

    Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is one of my favorite books of the series and one of my favorites of the films as well. There are many themes in the book and the film that I think are very important to think about and discuss, and which are applicable to the world today. Even today, especially in schools there are problems of scapegoating and othering. Scapegoating is the act of blaming one person for the problems of a group, or for basing one’s opinions or idea of a group based on the actions or beliefs of one member. Othering is making someone or something an outcast because of a difference to others in the group, or because the way the look or the things they say or do go against the norms established by a group. In Harry Potte…

                  In the short story “The Girl with the Hungry Eyes,” the narrator comes in contact with a girl whom he is repulsed by at first. He describes the Girl as unnatural, morbid, and unholy. That she is, until times show otherwise. The Girl was not a person whom he was immediately attracted to. As the story continued, they found themselves in each others company more than once. It is safe to say that the Girl had a keen eye for the narrator. It is apparent that the vampire girl came off with strong intentions. By the end of the story, they had shared multiple encounters. She was drawn to him, and the narrator began to become drawn to her. She craved love, and he desired her, but in a lustful way. At the end of the short story, he fon…

                The 'Mindworm ’, written by C.M. Kornbluth , is a story from the 1950’s that features an orphan who feeds off powerful emotions and often kills people while feeding off of the emotions. The Mindworm himself, who remains nameless, was born to a j.g. and nurse and likely had radiation poisoning (because of where he was conceived) which might have been the reason that he had the strange power and desire to feed. The Mindworm goes through a series of stories that depict how he reads minds and feeds off of peoples emotions, leaving certain cities after things get out of hand. The story concludes when the Mindworm attempts to feed off of Easter European’s emotions, but he can’t understand what they’re thinking because they do not spe…

Dracula and his servant, Anton, travel to Italy because the families there “are known to be particularly religious, and therefore should be an excellent place to search for a virgin bride” (IMDB). When they arrive in Italy, they meet the Di Fiore family who have four young, supposedly virgin daughters. Under the pretense of a possible marriage to the count, the parents of the girls allow their daughters to meet individually with the count.

    The story of Vampire Ltd. relates how we can relate the vampire theme to certain items like vehicles, and how the power of imagination can create a fast metallic monster waiting to consume your blood per mile.

    Throughout the years we have seen several films, and novels that provide life to cars like Christine, dolls like chucky, and even human parts like the hand on the Adams. On the story Vampire Ltd.

    “The Girl with the Hungry Eyes ” may seem like just another clever take on the old vampire legend; however, it is also a commentary on the affects of media on society. The Girl, as she is called, feeds on the life forces of men in much the same way that a classic vampire, with a small twist: she consumes their being. The Girl is presented as someone with an irresistible pull, an appeal that goes deeper than just sex. The narrator describes in great detail the ubiquitous nature of the Girl: “I…can’t stand to go downtown and see the mob slavering up at her on the tower…hate to look at magazines anymore…don’t like to think of millions of Americans drinking in that poisonous half smile…”. While he may claim that he hasn’t “suddenly developed an…

    Blade themes

    May 4, 2017 by Aawright

    Blade is an interesting character. He is the epitome of his species by being vampirical but gains his powers through birthright. He is African-American, which is not how most protagonist vampires are portrayed historically. He lives like he is a poor underground street hustler in a warehouse. Yet he has his multiple weapons and bullets made of silver, uses science and tech (ultra-violet light, chemicals), and vehicles for transportation. Meanwhile on the other end of the spectrum there is the counsel, and his nemesis for this movie Frost, who is a part of the white male power structure of the counsel all live opulently and don’t practice their supposed “forgotten faith” (Vampire Bible, Blood God etc..). Apart from Frost, they are old blood…

                Blade is unlike any other vampire in literature or film. There are two major things that set him apart from the rest. The first being that Blade is half vampire and half human. The second being that he kills other vampires. Most vampires can’t be exposed to sunlight, silver, garlic, etc. without dying. However, Blade can withstand all of these things because of his special nature. This gives him all of the vampire’s heightened senses and abilities without any of the setbacks. Though he has an underlying urge to drink blood, he has a serum that he takes to keep this urge at bay. Along with his special abilities, his attitude and mission are also different from most vampires. He does not seek to feed off of humans and kill them, b…

    The film, “Lemora” is about a vampire who summons a young beautiful girl named Lila. This movie might seem confusing to most people because the some of the parts of the story are left a mystery. The main question I get out of this whole movie is, was Lemora trying to protect Lila, or corrupt Lila? Lila is a brave, young, beautiful 13-year-old girl who lived with a reverend. Her father was a gangster who killed people, including her mother. People were either jealous of Lila or wanted to seduce her because of her good looks. She could even tell that the reverend thought those things of her. She never got a break, between her dad, the church, or all the jealous people around her. In a way, although never said in the story, I beli…

    The story, “The Girl with the Hungry Eyes,” is about a vampire, referred to as the Girl, who feeds on the attention of vulnerable men. She is utterly aloof, reveals nothing about her past, and uses her mysterious display to draw attention to herself. The Girl is one who lives by preying on others, and exploits and ruins the lives of men.The victim in this story, the photographer, realizes this too late. Throughout Leiber’s short story, the Girl continually subverts her vampiric identity in order to feed on people via the advertisements in which she appears.

The main difference between this film and Bram Stoker’s are that in I Was a Teenage Werewolf the main antagonist is a werewolf, whereas in Dracula the main antagonist is a vampire, who has control over wolves who serve him and bring him his prey when he can’t’ hunt. There are other minor differences as well as many similarities that I’m not going to touch discuss, but rather I will talk on an aspect that fascinated me. What remains the fascinating aspect to me is that in Bram Stoker’s Dracula, after Dr. Van Helsing, Arthur Holmwood, and Quincey Morris trap Lucy in the cemetary and succeed in driving a stake through her heart and cut…

    Lil’ Red Ridin’ Hood by Sam the Sham and The Pharaohs is a song that tells a times old fairy tale but with a more straightforward and explicit meaning than the one we heard as kids. This song is a representation of the inappropriate sexuality of men towards younger women. Also representing the innocence of these young females and how they shouldn’t trust strangers because of the possibility of those strangers being predators. As the fairy tale goes, the song talks about the wolf spotting Little Red Riding Hood walking alone in the woods. The wolf being the singer. Once he spots and approaches her the first few lines of the song are of the wolf convincing her that the woods are dangerous and that she should walk with him. The song continues…

     The 1966 song “Lil’ Red Ridin’ Hood” performed by Sam the Sham and the Pharaoh reached Number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in August 1966 and was the bands second top 10 hit.[1]  The song is based off Charles Perrault’s 1698 fairy tale Little Red Riding Hood. The song replaces the figure of the wolf with that of a man. The song takes the fairy tale façade out and replaces it with a sexual undertone. With lyrics such as “you sure are looking good”, “what full lips you have, they’re sure to lure someone”, it’s hard to not see a sexual, even pedophile undertone to the song. The original story has been analyzed and interpreted as being about sexual awakening, female puberty and her sexual maturity.[2] The authors own moral warning states: “…attr…

However, curiosity is not the only thing that could have caused the harm, for at times it is the deceit of another. The story of Little Red Riding Hood is a tale most children have commonly heard growing up. The idea that children know what is best for them, is a thought that has crossed all of our minds at that age. More times than one would like to admit, the temporary independence has backfired.

For some reason the story made it known that the youngest was the most beautiful. One by one the father who happened to be a werewolf killed his daughters. The youngest who apparently was also the smartest figured out what her father was doing. She pushed him down and ran. As she did this, she discarded her clothes which allowed her to get far enough ahead to hide in some hay. Her father tore through the hay but got tired before he found the one his daughter was in. To me, this is where the story gets dodgy. The king happened to be hunting in the area and found this woman naked, in the hay. He decided to marry her and she agre…

    “Little Red Hat” and “Little Red Riding Hood” are two folktales that are similar to one another yet are different in their own way. “Little Red Hat” was written in Italy/Austria with no real author of the tale. Meaning that the tale was probably known around the community to entertain and share the moral of the story. “Little Red Riding Hood” is the version of the folktale we are all familiar with. A French author named Charles Perrault wrote “Little Red Riding Hood.” He was also known for writing other folktales such as “Puss in Boots”, “Little Thumb “and “Cinderella.” A big difference between these two stories is the ogre and the werewolf.

    Little Red Riding Hood is a fictonial tale, with many versions from around the globe. For example, in Austria the "wolf" is represented by an ogre instead.(Story linked here). The ogre is vicious and cruel and in my own opinion this fictonal story is gruesome and goes into more detail compared to the American version, or even French version. Charles Perrault's version of Little Red Riding Hood (Story linked here) starts off as the little girl red going into the woods to visit her sick grandmother. In the woods she meets a wolf who starts to talk to her and ask her where she is headed. Little Red tells the wolf her plans to visit her grandmother and the location of her home.

                What comes to mind when the story The Little Red Riding Hood is mentioned? For many, it’s probably something along the lines of a classic childhood memory, a nightly bedtime story, or a fun read growing up. Although it is a classic today, the story has roots that are far more cynical than the far more modern version. Diving far back, Little Red Riding Hood (Perrault ), was written in 1697 has the same basic tale, without too much gore, as the modern-day version. But as it matured in its history, the story became far more macabre before it evolved further. One example of this is the story Little Red Hat (Schneller ), which was written in 1867 and is a far darker take on the same story. The story involves the main characters Littl…

    Sexual predators have been a prominent issue in countries around the world and can be traced back as far as Jack the Ripper’s time period.  Many individuals, especially young ones, suffer horrendous acts made by strangers and are left traumatized because of it. That is why many writers have come up with several ways to parade the message of averting the confrontation of unfamiliar people by having a wolf represent a man’s hidden sexual desires. The song, “Lil’ Red Riding Hood” demonstrates to the younger generation on how they should avoid making conversation with strange people through the figure of a wolf.

Throughout the song, the singer makes remarks such as “Hey there Little Red Riding Hood, you sure are looking good. You’re everything a big bad wolf could want” or “What full lips you have. They're sure to lure someone bad” or “What big eyes you have, the kind of eyes that drive wolves mad” which suggests that in this adaptation, the wolf is having intimate thoughts about Little Red Riding Hood (Lyrics…

    The folk tale “Little Red Hat,” originated in Italy/Austria, and the tale “Little Red Riding Hood” are two stories that have the same moral but tell a very different story. It is interesting how “Little Red Hat” uses an ogre instead of the expected werewolf. In folklore an ogre is defined as a man-eating giant. Many people interpret an ogre in a folktale as being used as a method of instilling good behavior in children by suggesting that bad behavior attracted and excited ogres, who would then eat the perpetrator. Little Red Hat takes a detour in the flower fields before delivering soup to her grandmother. If she had gotten there on time, or before the ogre, she may not have gotten her grandmother or herself killed. Fictional stories give …
