I was watching John Carpenter's Vampires and thought of my visit to Cerrillos, NM. That's the town that the final scene in Vampires was filmed. What would you do if:

1. Group of vampires moves into town. Located off the Turquoise Trail - in the middle of a whole lot of nothing.
2. Slowly turning the population of roughly 300 into the undead.
3. You only know that the neighbors have been disappearing, going on extended "vacations", etc.
4. You catch a glimpse of vampires moving from house to house.
5. It is 7PM and the sun has set.

I assume that you would have that chained?

You really don't want that running the whole house. Maybe a few puppy/child gates would keep it contained in the kitchen and laundry room.

After watching 7 seasons of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, 3 seasons of Angel and who knows how many vampire movies. I have come to the solid conclusion that bullets don't kill vampires, but they do hurt them.

So knowing bullets hurt. Its bang bang bang bang bang....and stake them while their down.


I also would start filling hollow points with wood pulp.

Also....decapitation dusts vamps.......so a few 5.56's to the head might take off enough head to dust them.

Can someone explain the end of that movie to me? It seems that John Carpenter simply ran out of ideas to end the movie. The head vampire could fly at 50+ mph, slice his hand through a person, but just stands there when the vampire hunter is rescued by his buddy.

The only thing worse than the pot-bellied, disorganized vampire-hunting crew was their tactics. Who would go into a “nest” in broad daylight without first busting out all the windows to let in as much sunlight as possible, then use breaching charges on the doors? Bayonets on WW1 12 ga. trench shottys would have been far better than those silly spears.

The movie started out bad, had a few good scenes in the middle but ended even worse.

+1 on the crossbow but add some holy water and a sunlamp to your arsenal.

I'm thinking, fortify a position in the house. Try to bunker down and not make any noise or sign of occupancy. Be prepared for an all-out assault. I'm thinking AR and a dozen mags, Mossy 500 with 100rds #4 shot, Glock 17 & 26 with 5 mags on my person, 1911 and 10 mags sitting at finger tips. As many stakes as I can make with the mop, broom, and plunger.

I like the idea of shoot 'em then stake them.

The situation gets complicated once you add the wife, 4yo, yippy dog in a ranch style house with basement. I have no room without windows. The basement is a bad choice due to windows and bilco door. 1st floor is rough due to windows/doors and a basement floor that can be compromised. The attic is a good option, but getting the armament in place without drawing attention from the blood-suckers may be tough. The tight attic will limit the bad-guy's movements and I can access the garage from the attic. Escape in a car will be very difficult, but still an option.

If I had to become a monster and I had my choice, I'd choose to be a vampire.

Werewolves: too furry and there's always the flea issue
Zombie: too stupid, stinky, and slow. Not to mention the phrase "eat me" wouldn't have the same zing
mummy: Ya gotta wait around too long to have any action. 5,000 years in a pyramid 'till someone just happens to wake you up. BORING
swamp thing: too icky

I'd go Buffy on their ass, screw Angel, and then tell Giles to stop acting like a pompous twit and get some of his own when he tried to chastize me.

No, no, no ... that just kills the whole point of this thread. I was looking for tactics and weaponry not jumping sides!!
Link Posted: 9/26/2005 8:27:51 AM EDT
Something interesting: there is an antique Colt revolver chambered for .38 Special that gets traded around sometimes, they've run a couple articles about it: the gun itself is engraved is engraved with images of vampires, crucifixes, etc. On one grip are a couple little silver bats, like kill markers. The box it comes with has inside it a mirror, a crucifix fashioned into a sharpened stake, a small vial labeled "holy water" with, you guessed it, holy water in it, a small compartment that apparently held cloves of garlic, judging by the scent, and six cartridges, one of them spent, with bullets made of solid silver and engraved to look like the heads of snarling vampires.

Somebody in the late 1800's/early 1900's either had a sense of humor or a sense of the dramatic. Probably both.


Also, I've been told by many an old farmer/rancher, that if there's something preying on the livestock or people that "just ain't normal" (the description rarely goes beyond that and a shudder), nothing "fixes it" better than a double-barrel shotgun loaded with pre-1965 silver dimes instead of buckshot. I'll take their word for it and save the silver for something better.

True, all that. But how's about a ghost? That would be cool. You still keep your looks, but noone but other ghosts can see you. you can flit about in your old stomping grounds, and see how much people miss you. Assuming they would. Miss you, I mean. Course, I'd need to kill any new girlfriend my boyfriend found, so maybe that wouldn't be such a good idea.

Hmm...back to the drawing board.

Fixed it.


Link Posted: 9/26/2005 9:17:32 AM EDT
Seems to me you can kill a Vamp by piercing its heart(not just with a wooden stake) or doing severe damage to his brain pan. So I think my AR with enough Mags/Ammo should do the trick.

Problem is so many documentaries skew the truth about how you can kill a Vampire we should launch an inquiry into said issue to ascertain the truth BEFORE its to late

That movie sucked.

Read the book, it is awesome.

John Steakley also wrote Armor.

His books are a wild ride.

As for defeating the vampires?

I'd rather be one!

well....... in the War of Northern Agression there are reports of soldiers using wood for bullets when lead was in short supply.....



I used to make silver bullets and silver palted mahogany and ash bullets for people who beleived in Vamps....


so that would work, or I woudl burn the whole town to the ground

Supersoaker with holy water. That would work, but, I have to admit, I haven't been preparing myself for vampire attacks. I'm trying to figure out what to do with the available resources. I mean, the ones I would have available if it weren't for the great 2005 Yardley flood and my canoe accident.

I would go completely hollywood - Dual Hand guns (1911's)
An AR (CQ sling) And a short barrel shotgun strapped to the back - And of course sometype of sword (for lopping off heads)

I have two room mates - Would probably have one of them carry a few stakes - sword - ammo - a hand gun or two (for support) - Maybe have another roommate on the roofs just in case

Maybe some napalm : )

I would stay in my house until morning. Vampires can not come into your home unless you invite them.

Once the sun is up. Stake them or leave the town.

At least that is how it is in every other vampire movie.

I remember seeing it in Handguns or Guns and Ammo between 1989 and 1995. Google time.

Here's one Vampire Kit. Sold at Sotheby's for $12,000 a few years ago. Of all places I found it on some hippy's website. He had it along with pictures of Rummy drinking blood (http://signs-of-the-times.org/signs/signs297.htm).

This is not the one discussed in an earlier post. That thing was excellent. Engraved revolver, bullets sculpted into dracula heads.

I would definately want a melee weapon of some sort. A broadsword or maybe an axe.

Rather than enter vampire infested buildings, I would simply wait for daylight and torch them. Molotov cocktails would be a very useful weapon.

I would definately stop by the church for some holy water. A sprayer will definately be part of the kit.

Firearms? A 12ga shotgun with buckshot, maybe some slugs.
