Are Vampires Out of Style?

Vampire-teeth-vampires-30598165-1440-900

So we just went through the whole True Blood and Twilight things, which at their hearts included prominent vampire characters. But they were also kind of a grab bag of paranormal characters, and lately, shifters have seemed to be ascendent.

So are Vampire tales going out of style? As I’ve commented before, we’ve seen a gradual transition from vampires as evildoers in the dark of night to allegories for the LGBT experience or misunderstood lovers.

I suspect that, for vamps to make another comeback, someone will have to find a new way in – another way to tell this age-old tale.

So how would you resuscitate (and mind the teeth) a vampire?
