Celluloid Diaries: Karma, vampires and coffee

Karma, vampires and coffee


Rainy Of The Dark published a fictional interview with the main character of  A GOOD MAN, Louis Caron. They talked about karma, vampires, aromatherapy and coffee.

What were you like before the story began?

Lonely. Tired. Old. Vampire.

Who are you opposing and why?

I'm not opposing anyone. I'm a vampire, yes - but I only kill people who deserve to die... Lost cases also - people without hope, without a future. I'm a good man.

Do you think maybe you should just lay off the caffeine a bit?

Do you believe caffeine is the reason I'm a vampire? What a brilliant idea! You should be a novelist instead of a journalist.

Have you tried aromatherapy, then?

Yes. I put a few drops of lavender essential oil on my pillow every night before going to bed. It calms the nerves and the less nervous I am the less blood I need. t calms the nerves and the less nervous I am the less blood I need. t calms the nerves and the less nervous I am the less blood I need. t calms the nerves and the less nervous I am the less blood I need.


 Alright, so what it is you plan to do once you have reached your goal?

My goal - meeting the woman of my dreams and spending a lifetime with her - is not possible. Love is only temporary for a vampire. Falling in love with a fellow vampire would help, but that. Does. Not. Happen.

What would your mother think of all this?

My sweet mom... I haven't seen her for almost 300 years, but I still miss her. She was already gone when I got turned into a vampire. I'm afraid she can still see me from her little place in heaven and be sad for what has become of me. I hope she understands I'm doing the best I can despite my vampire nature.

Right. So, how would you describe yourself?

Friendly. Honest. Romantic. Animal addict. Vegetarian. Vampire.

How would your opponent describe you?

Weird. Womanizer. Dishonest. Evil. Vampire.

Who are your closest allies?

My closest allies are the other vampires in my vampire support group (sort of like AA for vampires). They are the only ones who can help me with my vampire-related problems. I can also count on Vincent and Emma, my two human friends, even though they can't fathom what I am.

That’s great, but haven’t you heard the good guy always wins?

It's all karma. The more good you do around you, the more your karma will reward you. If you misbehave, your karma will punish you. Problem is, I'm a vampire. Without blood, I will be paralyzed for eternity.

Do you like Dexter and American Psycho? Then chances are you will love A GOOD MAN.

Louis Caron is a good man – he's a vegetarian, feeds homeless people, takes care of animals and is converned with the ecological well-being of the planet. But his altruism has a sinister edge – he's a vampire and local detective Taglioni becomes increasingly suspicious of him. Louis' attempt to escape the police will take him on a journey into his own private hell where he is not only forced to confront his worst fears, but where he will also destroy the lives of those he cares about.

  49. My favorite villain is Xerxes from the move 300, because he was so caught up in himself that he truly believed himself to be a god. His actions were evil but in his mind, he honestly thought them just, and that's what makes him so terribly unstoppable.
