8/11 V is for Vampyre

Posted by novoscene on August 11, 2008

We all know that Hollywood starlets have this unearthly youthfulness about them, seemingly defying age and gravity for years longer than nature intended. And while it’s possible that all that young firmness is the result of a healthy lifestyle and regular exercise, and more probable that most of the glitterati have their favorite plastic surgeon on speed dial, what if there was another explanation for their unnaturally flawless skin and good looks? Like what if the whole town was full of the never aging, blood sucking undead?

In her new novel, “Vampyres of Hollywood” Film, TV and Broadway star Adrienne Barbeau (along with co-writer Michael Scott) takes the idea of the Hollywood Vamp and runs with it. A serial killer is working through the Hollywood A-list and celebrities are running scared. When Beverly Hills detective Peter King is brought in on the case and discovers that most of the city’s top tier actors are actually an established network of vampires, he’s forced into an alliance with the head bloodsucker, who also just happens to be a super hot movie star (this is LA after all) and the duo set out to rid the streets of this vamp tracking menace dubbed the Cinema Slayer. Blood follows, then more blood. Then bits of cute dialog and Tinseltown trivia. Then more blood.-Kwan
