Help wanted from vampira fans!

To celebrate Halloween this year and to show how much of a following Vampira has on tumblr, I want each of you to take a selfie with something Vampira related. It can be a selfie at her grave, a selfie of a Vampira tattoo, a selfie wearing a vampira t-shirt, a selfie in Vampira costume, A selfie holding one of the DVDs or a selfie holding up Vampira fanart.  A selfie with anything vampira related. Get creative! Then tag your post with “vampirachallenge”. Hopefully we’ll have enough entries that I can make a collage of all the selfies and upload it on this blog on Halloween. 

My main reason for this bizarre request is that I do feel that this blog is a collaborative effort and I want to focus some attention on the fans and their support that has been fundamental in Vampira’s longevity and legacy. So this is your chance to be recognized as the awesome fans that you are! So get snap happy and I look forward to seeing the entries (including my own!)

Halloween is almost upon us, so why not spend it with Vampira? Amazon have 20 copies of the definitive Vampira documentary "Vampira and Me" left in stock at a discounted price. The DVD has sold out more than once and it’s a very limited stock left. If you are outside the US, you can also rent or buy a digital copy too.

 The Documentary features recently discovered footage and audio recordings and is predominantly told through interviews with Maila Nurmi. No other documentary comes close to telling her story so well and through her own words. 

So if you would like to spend sometime with the Glamour Ghoul, check out Vampira and Me on Amazon. I promise you won’t be disappointed! 

Praise for Vampira and Me

"…Punk Rock, Alt, Hipster, Goth and a far out chick long before such forms became the norm, Vampira’s cool transcends the decades…. Murmi is sympathetic, likeable and quite intriguing; she is well worth spending an hour and a half with. —Staci Layne Wilson, HORROR.COM

Vampira And Me works on multiple levels: as a Hollywood history lesson, as a portrait of mid-fifties Americana, and as a long-overdue tribute to the endlessly fascinating Nurmi, whom Greene befriended during the autumn of her years. —Marc Savlov, AUSTIN CHRONICLE

Thoroughly engrossing… R.H. Greene’s docu succeeds admirably thanks to the charismatic oncamera presence of a 74-year-old Nurmi. —Ronnie Scheib, VARIETY

Hellhounds Handbook: Asheville Remembers the Dark Goddess

Hellhounds Handbook: Asheville Remembers the Dark Goddess

Sex and death.

These are two subjects that don’t always play nicely. At least, for middle class, bourgeoisie culture. Now imagine intermixing libido and the great beyond during the 1950s, a decade not known for its tolerance and forward thinking.

Enter Vampira. An icon, an enigma, a question. She was a gothic queen played by Maila Nurmi on California television in the mid-1950s.

Comedian Dana Gould has some great stories of his friendship with Maila “Vampira” Nurmi.

You can hear them on the Halloween episodes of his podcast, “The Dana Gould Hour” (and when he was on Chris Hardwick’s “Nerdist” podcast).
