As long as were on the subject of vampires, a quiz:
- By what means do vampires customarily kill?
- By what means do vampire hunters customarily kill?
- By what means did Vlad the Impaler customarily kill?
- Why is Vlad the Impaler so frequently imagined as a vampire rather than, say, a vampire hunter?
So, I have this idea for a scene in a movie, but I have no idea for the rest of the movie, so heres the scene. Some people find it really funny, others are like what?
The characters are fighting a bunch of vampires, and the Cool Guy takes out this water cannon and starts blasting the vampires with liquid. When it hits them it burns like acid; the vampires faces melt, they collapse screaming, etc.
Less Cool Guy: Damn, that stuff works on them just like acid! What is it, holy water?
Cool Guy: No, its acid.
That is all.
Check out Ross Levatters terrifically detailed ongoing analysis of Alan Moores Watchmen or, more accurately, of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons Watchmen, since a great deal of the analysis concerns the artwork.
