The Vampiros are the creation of father / son team Richard and Anthony (AKA SHOCKTHEMONSTER) Montemarano. Following Anthony’s roles in several Hollywood vampire short films, he was asked if he had any more material about the characters. It was then that Richard came up with the idea for a story about a Vampire who was recruited by the C.I.A.. That was all it took for father and son to sit on the back patio in San Diego and dream up Vampiro over a couple of bottles of great cabernet. Richard’s inspirations stem from his Italian heritage and close-knit family as well. Throughout his years in business, Richard has dealt with a cast of characters and has gained a great deal of education and insight on integrity and betrayal.
