To Fill the Need for Another Book-to-Movie Series: Cirque du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant

For More Vampires Who Aren’t Still in High School: Daybreakers
Usually the filmic outcome of a virus that decimates the entire human race does so because it turns them into zombies.
To Slake Your Thirst for Hot Mortal-on-Immortal Action: The Hunger
This classic vampire film from 1983 is the epitome of vampirism-as-eroticism.
For More Dysfunctional Surrogate Vampire Families: Near Dark
