Vampires have been a fixture of film since Bela Lugosi brought Bram Stoker’s Dracula to life on the big screen in 1931. Over the decades vampire narratives have changed and evolved with the appetites of their viewers. First depicted as formally dressed villains, vampires were later portrayed a supernatural beings with some human characteristics, and still later as sympathetic figures.
Focusing on 19 representative films and television productions, this critical study tracks the evolutionary changes of the screen vampire. Each film is evaluated in seven key areas including the act of the vampire biting the victim; the process of the victim’s infection; the physical appearance and demeanor of the vampire and the vampire expert; and the eventual destruction of the vampire. Appendices include a complete filmography of the films examined.
