Vampire movies have a long and rich history, from what was probably the first one (in 1896), through the classics of the early twentieth century (Nosferatu, Bela Lugosi's version of Dracula), and on to the present day mania for Twilight and other modern takes. In between there have been hundreds of versions and variations, including American Sign Language vampires, comedies, space vampires, and much more. This book explores the lore of vampire films, why they remain perennially popular with audiences, and themes that run through the history of these cinematic bloodsuckers.
