"Vampire"  - a glamorous and terrifying creature of the night that has simultaneously frightened and fascinated us for centuries. From the very beginnings of film history the Vampire has held its own as a presence of darkness, sexuality, and difference. Neither dead nor alive the figure of the vampire never fails to lure us in with the thrill of its rebelliousness, its threat of infection, and its deviant sexuality.  From the cult classic Nosferatu with it's silent and predatory Count Orlok, to the many Draculas that have populated the big screen, to the larger than life peroxided-punk hottie Spike, the vampire in all its 'otherness' repels as it does attracts.
