Over the years, I have seen my share of vampire fiction from the novels of Anne rice to the Blade trilogy. Within the last decade, what was once a monster in horror films now has become the sexy companion within the paranormal romance genre. If anyone was to research the European legends and folklore, they would find the real vampire to be a predator that seeks humans as food rather than a lover. Today, many view this supernatural being to be a myth while centuries ago was feared all too real. There are historical documented cases within North America and Europe where unexplained deaths in community were believed to be the result of a vampire. Here is a YouTube video I came across that explains more about the panic this creature caused in history.
