Un-Dead TV: The Ultimate Guide to Vampire Television

Should vampires sparkle?

Nooooo.... sparkly vampires!

Vampires are definitely in vogue right now. Browse through any bookstore's racks and you'll find a score of novels with ‘vampire' in the title. This theme is especially notable in the young adult lit sections, where the reader will observe pieces such as the Twilight series, Vampire Diaries, Vampire Kisses, Vampire Academy and, my personal favorite, Vampire Beach

Has anyone noticed a trend?

Fellow creatures of the night,

Just a note to say we've partnered with a new forum site,, a brand-spanking new discussion board specific to vampires and television.

It's still in public beta, so they could use some kind folks to join up and give the forum a test.

I know there are a lot of fiends out there who are hooked on television vamps, so why not pop over and gush about your favorite shows?

(I'll be there too...) :)

Vampires Fanged and Defanged

The rise in the popularity of vampires causes one to categorize the type of vampires that we choose to watch. The first category is the fanged vampire. This is the vampire of the past that is a true monster. They have an animalistic need to satiate a hunger that goes beyond human control.

Sexuality in Vampire Fiction

Since the late 1800's, vampires have found their way into literature, folklore, and popular culture. In 1872, Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu introduced the literary world to Carmilla, one of the first vampire novels of its kind. The novel clearly illustrated the power of vampire seduction and set the tone for the most famous of all vampire characters.

A million fancies strike you when you hear the name: Nosferatu!N O S F E R A T Udoes not die!What do you expect of the first showing of this great work?Aren't you afraid? - Men must die. But legend has it that a vampire, Nosferatu, 'der Untote' (the Undead), lives on men's blood! You want to see a symphony of horror? You may expect more. Be careful. Nosferatu is not just fun, not something to be taken lightly. Once more: beware.- Publicity for Nosferatu in the German magazine Buhne und Film, 1922  
Late in the 17th century, there was a town called Croglin Grange (in Cumberland County, England). It's been said by some that the town was visited by a vampire... and the young lady in the tale barely escaped with her life.A one-story home in Croglin Grange was rented to a two brothers and their sister. One summer night, when the heat from the day still clung to the air, the sister was looking out her window at the stars. It was too hot to sleep. Suddenly, she noticed two lights that flickered in and out of the group of trees that lay beyond her window.
