1615 Zalman Zevi of Aufenhausen, "The apostate said that there are those among the Jews who take a lump of clay, fashion it into a man, and whisper incantations and spells, whereupon the figure lives and moves. In the reply which I wrote for the Chrisitian I made the turncoat look ridiculous, for I said that he himself must be fashioned from just such kneaded lumps of clay and loam, without any sense or intelligence, and that his father must have been such a wonder worker, for as he writes, we call such an image a homer golem [an unshape, raw mass of material], which may be rendered "a monstrous ass" [a really good pun], which I say is a perfect description of him.

We have all seen at least one vampire movie in our lives with some being great and others being completely ridiculous. For I am not much of a vampire movie person, but I will tell you that no vampire movie I have seen has been more ridiculous or more empty than the recent remake of the 1985 horror movie "Fright Night."
The entire film revolves around a high school student named Charlie, who has a nerd friend that believes his new neighbor is indeed a real living vampire.
