We've Seen so Many 'Versions' of the Vampire, Though: Which One Ranks at the Top?
Difficult question to ask and answer, I guess. The culture, though, deserves praise for having such rich history and mythology ripe for literature and stories, both on the silver screen and printed paper. But perhaps this isn't about what makes a great vampire, period -- but, rather, what can make a great vampire to you!
After all, we all have different 'tastes' (in blood).
- Sex Appeal? -- For sure, vampires are indeed sexy. One look at these two vixens, and you'll agree with me (even though one of them technically is not undead). But does that necessarily define a vampire? I THINK NOT.
- What About Comedy? -- It's amazing that the culture has represented quite a few comedians with the fangs and pale skin, and after awhile, the 'behaviors' some bloodsuckers exhibit can get laughable over time, which is more than what I can say for these two undead freaks.
- Or Coolness? Emo? Teen Romance? -- Aaah, yes. Thank you, Stephenie Meyer. We salute you. But in all seriousness, what makes a truly 'cool' vampire with the shades and dark clothes anyway? Is it this guy or this guy? You be the judge.
