Surfacing from Romanian folklore via escapist cinema, the term Moroi was appropriated as an alternative “denomination” for vampires. However, the Slavic lexicon points out to the můra – mòra etymological nexus, with direct reference to nightmares, only to develop subsequently an archetypal transition towards a more palatable form of a succubus. It is a rather comforting contrast to the Romanian incipient interpretation, which preserved for centuries the even more disturbing meaning of an unbaptized dead child that haunts his own mother in the dead of night… Therefore, the Moroi phantasm tries to encompass as many neuroses as possible, from infanticide anxieties to sexual masochism, branching out with each storytelling leap, such as to test our fears du jour… No matter how much fright one might crave, the truth rests with those who take a martially piercing look within themselves, in the attempt to exorcize their own disquietudes. When we struggle to metabolize our own fears, to turn them into nurturing identity reformation, no demons can feast on our souls…
