The debate over vampires as heartthrob versus heart-devourer is old but still valid. For every studly Dracula, rising out of his coffin like Hugh Hefner (back in the 1960s), there's another bloodsucker with giant fangs and creepy eyes and gore-encrusted claws. Consider the contrast between the horrific "I Am Legend" and the smoldering Bill from HBO's "True Blood" and, of course, the doe-eyed Edward of "The Twilight Saga" (shown here bedding Bella in "Breaking Dawn Part 1").
But are they really hot, or horrific? And where do they stack up against the many other bloodsuckers who have slunk across the screen? Our crack team of experts ponders the sex-appeal (or lack thereof) of creatures of the night.
