Dear Claudia: I have been living in my house in Ahwatukee for the last seven years. I fixed it up back then, but now it’s looking outdated. I have a minimum budget of $1,000 to spruce up my living dining room. Without seeing my space what do you recommend I should do within my budget?
It’s interesting to think how “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” has impacted every vampire-related movie/show to come out in the past decade, from the forbidden romance in “Twilight” to the topical humor of “True Blood.” Even something as unique as “Only Lovers Left Alive” can be traced back to “Buffy.” The film is a bit like the episode, “Conversations with Dead People,” which satirized independent movies with a supernatural twist. It wouldn’t be at all surprising if writer/director Jim Jarmusch saw this episode and decided to put his own spin on the concept. What Jarmusch delivers is a smart romance that always feels honest, despite the fact that the lovers are both vampires.
