And its creator Joss Whedon's subversive take on supernatural stories has shaped everything from Marvel to Star Wars.Before Buffy, if a girl and a monster went into an alleyway and there was no boy to save her, only the monster came back out. Buffy changed all that.Twenty years on, the story of the girl who saved the universe . . . a lot and the world's most emotionally complicated vampire is told in Slayers and Vampires by the people who were there.TV experts Edward Gross and Mark Altman talked to almost 100 writers, producers, directors, filmmakers, sociologists and stars from Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Angel in new and vintage interviews from their personal archives, among them: Joss WhedonGuillermo del ToroFelicia DayAnthony Stewart HeadCharisma CarpenterJames MarstersDavid BoreanazAmy AckerJ.
