Halloween is getting closer, so that means that this whole month is dedicated to horror movies. Horror is an essential part of Halloween because we love to be scared! Well speaking of fear, the vampire throughout history has been scaring up the world for centuries. From folklore, to books, then to movies, we know the vampire as a creature who seduces it's prey and sucks its blood.
Who are some of these classic movie vampires? Well Bela Lugosi is one name who played in a still popular version of "Dracula." There are many different versions of Dracula, he's a popular thing to direct in either film or TV. Christopher Lee is an actor who has played Dracula many times in his career.
Other than Dracula and Lee and Lugosi, we have another famous literary vampire story to direct, is "Camilla." It was made before "Dracula," actually and it was about a young woman whose life is being taken away from her by a female vampire. Other literary vampires that have graced the screen are Lestat from the Anne Rice books, the half human, half vampire Blade from the Marvel comics, and there are several examples. Of course vampire characters aren't just based on books, you have two other names like Count Yorga, Barnabas Collins, and the list goes on. The vampire is and was an important character in supernatural movies. Now though for more people the creature has gone soft but doesn't mean it wasn't popular either.
The slideshow is a look at these vampires that have graced the classic movie scene. So take a bite out of it and look at these bloodsucking creatures.
