Vampires in Vogue

Blood is the new black as vampires make a comeback.

Vampires are nothing new. Tales have been written about the nocturnal creatures since the 1800s. People have always been intrigued by the horror and mystery of vampires, but not enough to start a trend. For a while, there was only an occasional vampire drama, film or book to keep fans entertained. Then along came Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

The 1992 film introduced us to the character Buffy Summers, an American cheerleader who hunts down dangerous vampires. The tongue-in-cheek film wasn’t very successful, but it inspired the writer to make a spin-off series. Soon millions of viewers were tuning in to watch Sarah Michelle Gellar bravely fight off the vampire world while maintaining the appearance of an average high school pupil. But this was just the beginning of vampire domination. These days, vampires are everywhere, and it seems that new vampire stories are created every day. There have been drama series such as The Vampire Diaries, and novels such as Vampire Kisses and Vampire Hunter.
