Bram Stoker's Way of the Vampire (2005)
Vampires are mythological creatures, famous in folklore for theirneed to feed on the blood of animals and humans for survival. Whileregarded as part of the horror genre, vampire films do have their owncharacteristic style, as many motifs have spawned from the famous 1897Bram Stoker novel Dracula. But Dracula himself originatedfrom Southeast Europe and was not the first vampire myth; cultures suchas the Mesopotamians, Hebrews and Romans have long had tales of demonsand spirits that would drink blood and feast on flesh.
Filmmakers have interpreted the cult of vampires in many ways, someemphasizing the primal and ancient instinct of the ungodly, whileothers using vampires as tools to introduce generic horror and gore.For example, vampires have been portrayed as rock stars in Queen of the Damned, next door neighbors in Fright Night, space creatures in Lifeforce, melancholic aristocrats in Interview with the Vampire and criminals in From Dusk Till Dawn.
The female vampire has been depicted in many forms as well; as beautiful lesbians in Vampyros Lesbos and sexual predators in movies like Vampyres and Rabid.Eroticism and seduction are emphasized for the female vampire, whosedesire for blood is inextricably intertwined with her lust for pleasure.
Vampire comedy is a sub-genre which tries to make light of the vampire myth, by appealing to the popular culture. Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Blacula and Jesus Chris Vampire Hunterare some films which appear in this popcorn niche. Most of these filmsare dismissed as B-grade trash, although some gradually develop a minorcult following.
