Sexy Vampires Didn't Start With Twilight

I was reading a blog the other day that had the audacity to say that Twilight made vampires sexy.  Don't get me wrong I happen to think Edward is a handsome vampire but there were many greats that walked before he, Eric, or Damon found their way onto the vampire scene.  When it comes to sexy,  these fanged men were heating up our blood long before the world ever heard of Edward Cullen.


The man that made me fall in love with Vampires and I personally thank for keeping my love of vampires alive is the beautiful Chris Sarandon. Fright night is considered a cult classic and it has always been one of my favorite movies on the shelf.


Jason Patrick from the Lost Boys 1987 was absolutely dreamy before and after he was turned into a vampire.  


Gary Oldman, Dracula in 1992 swept me off my feet.  The story off Dracula and Mina was absolutely incredible and I fell in love with this beautiful vampire.  


Who can say that Antonio Banderas and Brad Pitt weren't two of the sexiest vampires to ever find the big screen? Interview With a Vampire, 1992 absolute 5 fang rating.


Miles O'Keeffe in Waxwork 1988 would make my heart race a little faster.  He was Dracula in the wax museum and absolutely fangilicious.


James Marsters and David Boreanaz from Buffy, I won't even get into how many times I still watch this series.  Let's just say that I've worn out two complete box sets and replaced them again.  


         

Twilight, The Vampire Diaries, and True Blood might be keeping the sexy in vampire, but they by no means started the tradition.  I know I've left out many of the sexy vampires out there but I just wanted to make a quick point.  The next time someone says that Twilight is making vampires sexy they might want to do a little research into the past.  Vampires have always been sexy and as a vampire lover I can only hope that Hollywood continues to feed my craving for these immortal hotties.
