• As they don't exist its all in the movies have you ever met a blood sucking Vampire? Ive only met the money sucking type.

      Actually, since you ask, once, yes. But I did specifically ask about vampires in films and filed the question under the movies category.

      As I said thats Movies. Im sure you know everything to do with Holloywood is lies and bs.
  • They are just movies that are a fantasy and don’t have to meet your expectations as to how vampires should look like.

      A lot of the old movies made vampires look more frightening, like Nosferatu or the miniseries Salem's Lot. More of the modern movies try to make them look sparkly and glamourous, which is kind of funny, actually.
    • Shadow Of The Mind
      Yeah. I know what you mean. I have the original Nosferatu and Salems Lot in my collection. They are legendary vampire movies among others. Christopher Lee looked stylish in the Dracula movies with Hammer Horror production.

      He was iconic. So was Bela Lugosi. In Bram Stoker's book, Dracula is described as having a bushy mustache, but a clean shaven chin. I think that the novel might be the first instance in literature of vampires being "attractive" rather than simply monstrous.
    • Shadow Of The Mind
      Of course he was iconic. Christopher Lee is my number one favourite actor of all time. I enjoy some vampire movies although I am aware vampires are made up characters.

      Christopher Lee isn't just a great actor, but he was just all around one of the most interesting people - he witnessed the last public execution in France, met two of the men who assassinated Rasputin, served as a pilot in the RAF in WWII, was the only actor in the LOTR film series to have personally known Tolkein, was the only actor in the James Bond films to have been an actual spy (probably how he met Ian Flemming), became a heavy metal singer whilst in his late 80's, and yet, even having been descended from royalty and lived such an incredible life, wasn't knighted until he was 87 years old!
    • Shadow Of The Mind
      That is true. He was a legend as both actor and in person and a gentleman.
  • Most modern mirrors are made with aluminum backing, so modern vampires can see themselves. The "theory" was that the silver that used to be the mirror backing was a "pure" metal, therefore vampires couldn't see themselves in it. That would not, however have prevented them from seeing their reflection in a window, water or other reflective non-silver surfaces- mirrors were also made in ancient times from other highly-polished metals such as copper and bronze and vampires would probably have access to such ancient artifacts as something they acquired new or inherited.

      Interesting answer. Thank you!
  • Because they prey on humans, so attraction "counts."
  • A vampire looking in the mirror is to look in their souls. That's how frightening it is to vampires. As decades have passed, the vampire has changed in the film industry in turn to represent contemporary fears.
  • Remember Farah Fawcett's iconic poster? I read not long ago that she did her own hair AND MAKEUP with NO MIRROR for that poster!!!
