Vampires are a popular subject these days. There are a million different versions from Bram Stoker’s Dracula to Anne Rice’s angst ridden vampires. You have everything from Buffy the Vampire Slayer to Twilight to True Blood. All of them different. There are vampires for every taste these days from sexy to scary and even sparkly if you go that way. But they all have one thing in common. Vampires are immortal.
Let’s talk about vampires. I know, I’m jumping on the bandwagon. Vampires are a popular topic for a reason, and that is what I want to look into.
First there’s a whole range of vampires from the cute to the terrifying. The Cute extreme goes to Count von Count from Sesame Street. He is not much of a blood sucker, despite the fangs. His claim to fame is his ability to call thunder and lightning when he has successfully counted something. On the other end, I put the sightless creatures from the movie Priest. That’s just my opinion. There are certainly plenty of other contenders for terrifying, but that is up to your point of view.
