Vampires are never going away. We could point to the recent success of Midnight Sun as definitive proof, but the reality is vampires will continue to be a feature of fantasy fiction for as long as the written world. That might sound hyperbolic, but Carmilla , one of the oldest vampire stories, is a strong argument in favor of my case. I will admit my objectivity in the case of vampires could be compromised because I consumed a lot of vampire television shows, books, and movies at an impressionable age. One of the original horror movie villains was Nosferatu in , and he just keeps coming back to terrify and delight us. Dracula addressed the fading aristocracy, sucking society dry with their predatory needs.
Besides energy vampires , the world of the undead has remained largely fictional. But, as the popularity of the fantasy genre suggests, as readers, we have a natural inclination towards any and everything paranormal. This fascination has given way to countless vampire movies , hit soap-y television shows Vampire Diaries or True Blood, anyone?
