On My Side Table: Queen of the Damned


Long before Twilight even exist, there is already the Vampire Chronicles and before we have Stephenie Meyer, Anne Rice already gave us bits and pieces about vampires and their world.

I remember watching Interview with the Vampire starring Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise and Kirsten Dunst. As a child, I have always been fascinated by the mysteries of vampires and the underworld (I really don't like our local horror stories -- mostly because, local aswangs or manananggals are ugly and really scary, while their international counterpart, the vampires and the famed Count Dracula appears to be really noble and handsome). As Edward says, everything about them is beautiful to their prey.

I have yet to read Queen of the Damned and I guess I haven't seen the movie either (don't worry, I know the lead star! ;p) 

Bear with my watermark, 'tis my first time using photoshop CS5, thank you!
