We all know about the new Department of Homeland Security, but did you know about the Federal Vampire and Zombie Agency?

Under the topic of Dr. Pecos At the Movies there is a page of review of such movies as "Lost Boys," "Near Dark," and "Dawn of the Dead" rated for authenticity and entertainment.

In the middle of the page he reviews:

Vampires (1990) D: Ken Burns
If you see one movie about vampires, let it be this documentary first shown on PBS. Because of its running time (8 hours), many people assume this opus will be boring. They couldn't be more wrong. By sticking with the facts, director Ken Burns brings life to vampires in a way that is far more chilling than movies that rely on special effects and blood capsules.

A quick check of the IMDb shows that, alas, no such documentary exists.

Sweet zombie Jesus. This needs to be something bigger than a web site. A screenplay, a television series, a comic book, a video game. Something! I want more. I-- I hunger for it. Hunger. Hunger f-f-for.

Braaaiins. Braaaaaains.
