Ever since Twilight became a thing, shifters and been all the rage in the paranormal genre. Sure, we’ve seen attempts by zombies, Frankenstein, and even a return of the vampires to dethrone shifters, but they still seem to rule the roost.
But every dynasty must eventually fall. So what’s the next great paranormal craze?
At one point, vampires held sway over the popular imagination, with icons like Lestat, Dracula, Count Chocula, and Elvira in the national limelight.
And some shows have tried to blend the cast of characters – even Twilight had both vampires and werewolves. Being Human had a werewolf, a vampire, and a ghost. And of course, True Blood had pretty much everything.
So if you had to guess, what would you say would be the next paranormal creature to take center stage in the cultural imagination? Ghosts? Maybe misunderstood demons? How about paranormal leeches?
