Bram Stokers Dracula certainly added a popular twist, with vampires being cloaked and sleeping in coffins for many stories and authors thereafter.
As a 21 year old, that has been 21 for 23 years, my experience with vampire movies has seen some changes. I guess my first experience was with "the Lost Boys" in 1987. These guys were too cool to wear cloaks and came across as the cool undead not the cold undead
So we see vampires are becoming softies, there is hope for world peace yet !
Which type of Vampire do you prefer ?
