Their stories varied from the nightmarish creepy to the darkly comical in different cultures, no two are the same.

Despite their devilish ambitions, they walk amongst us in human forms. However, vampires have always known to have a unique appearance. The most famous western-inspired ones have signature red eyes, pale skin with retractable fangs and are often ferocious.
But with different cultures, comes different forms. For example, the Mexican vampire are hairier fiends and some may even mistake them for a second Chewbacca. In Australia, they are depicted as a short, red man with large heads and octopus-like suction cups on its hands and feet. In India, vampires are told to wrap their victim’s smelly intestines like a turban on their heads. Also, China’s fame hopping dead, or “Jiang Shi” that entertained our childhood and lastly, our very own version of vampire, the “Pontianak” – a bloodlust ghost of a woman who has died in childbirth. All these frightening looks have sure to chill spines to endless sleepless nights especially when we were kids.

But those were during the peak of their popularities back in the classic gruesome and horrific days. Vampires today have been reimagined into subtle, mystique and eerily charming creatures such as the ever so famous – Twilight, True Blood, The Vampire Diaries and to name a few. They appear as sexy as ever, almost overshadowing the gruesome appearance that they once had. And with that, our love for vampire movies grew even further. The gloomy setting, the dreamy vampire characters, the fabulous storyline, all make the movie so bloody perfect! With so many reasons to admire, it’s no wonder vampire lore is so loved and spoken off.
