We’re extremely excited to start a new bi-weekly series here on Bloody-Disgusting that’s called Horror Trip! Hosted by RagnarRox, Horror Trip will take a popular topic in horror and analyze it from a historical and philosophical perspective, ultimately becoming an educational yet still highly entertaining video series that gives you a broader understanding of where some of our favorite tropes, characters, myths and legends came from.
We’re kicking off the series today by diving into the realm of Vampires! While many of us know that the first mainstream vampire character was Bram Stoker’s Dracula, the myths of vampires go much further back in and come from a wide variety of cultures.
Join Ragnar as he takes you on a trip through vampiric history!
Ragnar Ulricson, older than he looks and nicer than you think. When he doesn’t make videos about horror stuff and video games on his mildly successful YouTube channel RagnarRox, he works as a (formerly 9-to-5, now independent 24/7) game designer and also loves long, relaxing walks on the beach.
