out of mental/social
dysfunction or excessive movie/book/game fandom, like to pretend (in a non-ironic manner) that they are vampires. Includes Anne Rice fans, fans of books about

who post on I'm-a-vampire internet boards.
"Let's go to the movies."
"Oh, not tonight. That new vampire movie
is out, and the place
will be choked with the Poseferatu. I don't want some fat guy in a cape getting pancake
makeup on my jacket."
