10 Huge Differences Between Real Vampires of History and Vampires in Films

Now, Hollywood vampires seem lame.

These differences are assembled from the folklore and history of various cultures; how vampires eat, live, and grow, –as well as how vampires usually come up from society. That’s interesting, and I like that point: many movies and shows depict vampires as being rich, groomed sophisticates, –but in a good portion of the world’s folklore, vampires are peasants, villagers, and people who just ended up in bad situations. 

The vampire myths debunked here are excellent, and this is probably one of my favorite lists I’ve ever found. Great photos, great answers to movie vampire myths. So, did you guys learn anything new today?
