Vampires V Zombies!

The Vampire is dead, Long live the Zombie. Natalie Haynes investigates our contemporary obsession with Vampires and Zombies from Buffy to the Walking Dead. She examines the various anxieties they express about food, addiction, sex and disease and talks to writers who've found themselves depicting these creatures in fiction. What happens when you put a vampire family in a semi in bradford? Do zombies know they are zombies? Why is an American High School the perfect setting for a Vampire slayer? The answer to all these and more as Natalie Haynes pits Vampires against Zombies.
