Pictures of Vampires—Because why the hell not!

Before the marathon of Syfy original movies kicks off and I become welded to the couch for 12 hours, I want to take a few minutes to share a couple of thoughts about that undead creature of the night we all know, love and can’t live with or without. Yes, I’m speaking of the vampire.

Call it what you like—nosferatu, vampyr, upir, wąpierz, strigoi or plain ol’ blood-sucking ghoul—the vampire has always been my favorite of the classic monsters.  I mean, what’s not to like? They’re sexy, seductive, polite, powerful, menacing, monstrous, dapper, dangerous and, hey, a lot of fun to watch and fantasize about. Thanks to Hollywood, we’ve been given a vampire for every season, though the current favored incarnations are either young and sparkly (Twilight) or Southern and sexy (True Blood). Vampires have been portrayed by actors such as Bela Lugosi, Kirsten Dunst, Christopher Lee, Tom Cruise, Leslie Nielsen, Catherine Deneuve, Max Schrek, Willem Dafoe, Klaus Kinski, Jack Palance, Louis Jourdan, Brad Pitt, John Carradine, George Hamilton, Kate Beckinsale, Gary Oldman and Lon Chaney Jr. And that’s just a partial list.

So, because I enjoy farting around doing research, and for your viewing pleasure, I present a collection of pictures of vampires. Because why the hell not!

    Eric Northman and Kate Beckinsale have to duke it out for my top spots, and I’d be remiss if I forgot to tell you that you left off the only one truly in any position of winning greatest vampire of all time: James Marsters’ Spike from Buffy. Want.

    I wanted a pic of Spike all vamped out, but I couldn’t find a good one. So, I went with Angel instead—as long as I hit the Whedonverse, I was happy.
