Just a Bit of Dark Shadows

Gothic Bite Magazine

While there are many television series, I could have chosen to be my choice for this month’s theme of Vampires the one that I chose is one of the beginning series.

Dark Shadows

Dark Shadows came to the TV screen back on June 27th, 1966. When we think of soap operas, the first thing we think of is not Vampires. For me, I tend to go to Days of Our Lives, Young and the Restless, or something in that vein.

However, the series Dark Shadows, which aired weekdays on ABC, lasted in the original series from 1966 through 1971. By the end of the original airing, the show had 1,225 episodes. Quite a run for a series I think.

Taking A Bite

The series revolved around the lives of the wealthy Collins family and was set in Collinsport, Maine. While the series…

Capricorn Zodiac

Gothic Bite Magazine

Gothic Bite Magazine realized the zodiac and astrology plays a big part in the paranormal.

Why not have our expert, Luna, tell you all about it as the months go by?

January & February

The tenth sign of the zodiac is the Capricorn which covers those born on December twenty-second until January ninetieth.

The following dates falls under Aquarius the eleventh sign, which ranges from January twentieth to February nineteenth. These two signs are different, yet both cover different aspects of a person’s life.

Zodiac Signs

A goat represents those born under the Earth sign such as the Capricorn. Those under the Earth sign are driven to reach the top in the career path they chose.

They desire to reap the rewards of their success though some may upset others when making their way to the top.


Those under Aquarius have two old glyphs of waves representing its connection…

I love writing and reading about love. There’s nothing better than two characters finding each other in unusual situations and conquering all odds to be together. *Sigh* Regardless the genre – paranormal, contemporary, fantasy – if there’s romance–I wanna read it! 

I was born in Hawai’i but grew up most of my life in a small town in Michigan and the sunny beaches of Florida. After graduating high school, I return to my island ohana for college where I wrote my thesis on how to write a young adult book. (Oddly enough)

Wife, mother, dog owner, and author, my hat constantly changes but…

Hotel Transylvania 3 Review by Alexa Wayne

Gothic Bite Magazine

Hotel Transylvania is one of my most beloved franchises for its style and uniqueness.

I liked that the creative team decided to come up with a movie about monsters instead of humans or superheroes.

In a world where everything seems to be the same, Hotel Transylvania dares to be different, well, going from a hotel to a cruise, primarily a hotel, on water.

Let’s do the Hotel Transylvania Summer Vacations Review!

My Hero Academia – Review

I decided to cover a popular anime, My Hero Academia, which is a shonen anime. Shonen anime refers to young boys under the age of fifteen. Thus, shonen anime and manga are aimed at that demographic. A lot of these anime and manga have a young male hero and are focused on action, adventure, and fighting. My Hero Academia follows this archetype by exploring Izuku “Deku” Midoriya quest to become a hero.


[Game Grinding] Kingdom Hearts 3 Review

Shakyra Dunn

I kind of swept through this game. And I promise that I took my time with everything spare lucky emblems, gummi missions (which I hate), and every little detail in between. But now that I’ve finished it, and with that, the series that consumed thirteen years, more than HALF of my life, I’m going to share the nitty, gritty, non-spoilers of what I think of the end of the Xehanort saga.

Underworld – The Review

Gothic Bite Magazine

I was always a fan of movies featuring a woman as a starting lead, and so Underworld caught my attention with action, romance, vampires, and werewolves.

We’re used to the feud between vampires and werewolves, but Underworld brought a new meaning to enemies.

Underworld Synopsis

A war raging for centuries, unseen by humans, between vampires and werewolves is happening. Vampires seem to be winning until the alpha of the werewolves, Lucian, found one human named Michael, capable of bonding the blood of both races.

Scratched, Michael is carrying the werewolf gene, enemies of the vampires until the death dealer, Selene unwraps the mystery surrounding the hate between the two powerful races hence discovering her own rebirth as a vampire. — Alexa Wayne

Vampire Hunter D

Gothic Bite Magazine

Vampire Hunter D is one of those series that by the title of the show it can be guessed what the show itself, and its main character for that matter, are all about from the beginning.

Top of the Food Chain

In a world where nuclear fallout caused the Nobility, or vampires, to take their place in the top of the food chain for years. The rest of the paranormal beings came out to play, and the race of humans set to constant fear.

Visit Kingston Publishing!

It seemed like extinction was the name of the game for humans, but variables such as the overindulgent greed of the beautiful and cruel Nobility, the fierce determination of the frontier folk and the rise of Spectral slayers that have arisen is changing that game to the side of humanity. D is one of those fighting against the tides, and the story revolves…

The Odd Origin of Vampires

Gothic Bite Magazine

Vampires are part of our folklore for hundreds of years. The beliefs that a being subsisting on the vital fluids of a human has timelessly been retold numerous times around the world.

Is Ignorance To Blame?

In the early seventeenth hundreds, the process of decomposition was not something people were knowledgeable about back in the days. The black plague or bubonic plague were things of the past, but most corpses had to be burned thus spreading the disease, but that’s another topic while normal ones were to be put in a coffin and buried.

In Western Europe, many cases reported sights of presumed “dead” people seen as dark and bloating, their nose and mouth dripping blood. Also, that brought up the first cases of “vampirism” after ancient times.
