So…what’s your fave vampire “type”? C’mon. We all know that vampires come in all shapes and sizes. Sure according to myth, they suck blood and are afraid of the dark and detest garlic.
But we all know, too, that there is no one kind. The media has shown us that this species is fickle in temperament and physical nature.
A few examples:
There’s the bloodthirsty, somewhat sexy Bram Stoker Dracula who desires to “violate” young virginal women, changes into wolves, bats, and god knows what else- and is the Victorian man’s worst nightmare.
There’s the weird most decidedly un-sexy Nosferatu. Creepy and just plain icky.
There’s the oh-so erotic, intellectual, and emotional Anne Rice vampire. (Usually played by Tom Cruise or Brad Pitt.)
Plus there’s his slightly stupid relative, the moronic parasitic kind portrayed in books like I Am Legend and 'Salem’s Lot.
And…::sigh:: No, I’m not going to include the Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Angel kind! I am- oh crap. I just did.
And there must be others I have left out. What’s your fave?
