Gothic Tarot of Vampires
A tarot of the depths - not only the superficial aspects - of the Vampire mythos. Sensual, violent, spiritual, and somber, the Gothic Tarot of Vampires is dark and contemporary and, yes, sometimes bloody.

Gothic Tarot of Vampires review by Dan Pelletier
Before I discuss the Gothic Tarot of Vampires, I would like to examine the Vampire mythos. If you have not read "Dracula" for a while you owe it to yourself to go back and re-read it. It's racy, erotic, and considering Bram Stoker published it in 1897, it gives a different light to the story. It reeked of the seductive, and the sensual.
It was a far different story than the 1931 Bela Legosi classic, which lacked the sexuality that the original story contained. However "Dracula" was neither the first nor the finest vampire movie.
In 1922, F.W. Murnau directed "Nosferatu, A Symphony of Horror" with Max Shreck as Count Orlock. It is considered by some to be perhaps the finest Vampire movie ever.
