So this sounded like a good idea, I enjoyed the 1922 Nosferatu vampire, and the Salem's Lot vampire - you know the ghost, ghoul and monster variety - not the TeenBeat, Judy Blume type vampires that are skipping all around now with their fancy hairdos....But, then I saw the panel topics they listed here and figured that vampires are just a total write-off at this point. Long live zombie movies! Don't think the teeny boppers will wind up with heart-throb zombies anytime soon (I know, that's just tempting fate....)

will have their food served to them out of coffins as part of a mission to encourage students of all ages to study literature
Oh yeah. That'll do the trick.

Vlad the Impaler lived in Transylvania!
The Vampire legends were far reaching throughout Europe. It was Bram Stoker's sanguin stories that added flesh and blood to the mysteries of Transylvania.
Blah, Blah Blah!

Meh. Portraying vampires as attractive is s-o-o-o 1979.

Well Britain, you’ve already allowed the Muslims to immigrate. Might as well let the vampires come home too. It’s not like it’s going to make things worse.

Dracula wasn’t British! He was born in Transylvania which is in present-sday Romania and was known as Vlad The Impaler for the cruel punishments he imposed on his enemies. He is also known for his resistance against the Ottoman Empire (aka Muslim jihadis) and its expansion.
Nosferatu is the creepiest. I remember seeing his image on TV when I was a kid and he’s creeped me out ever since.

The book Dracula by Bram Stoker is a classic. Everyone should read.

Dracula worked for the government.
And was only there to help you.
