    Aha, vampire! I like vampire-related movies and TV series very much! CW’s hit The Vampire Diary is my favorite American TV series for the moment. That’s a killer! Back to the slangs, the hunger, my bad, killer and bite me are kinda familiar to me, I see them frequently used in movies and TV shows. I didn’t even know they originate from vampire. That’s interesting! In weekly American Idol S10, the judges ofter say”you are a killer” or “you killed the song”. I thought they were just showing their humor. I know now that’s a regular expression which means “you are amazing”. Thanks Lewis.

    Thank you Charlene for your comment. I cannot say that some of these so called Vampire slangs are directly associated with vampires but the TV shows that I mentioned did use a lot of slang in general which became household words (the words became popular in daily usage among young people) because of the popularity of the TV shows. So i guess you could say that these vampire slangs have an indirect association with vampires such as the word “killer”.
