Vampire Movie Trivia: Part 2

That’s right guys, I’m bring you even more vampire movie trivia. Hurray for useless (but fun) bits of information! If you missed the first round of trivia click HERE.

– Colin Farrell was offered the role of Hannibal King in Blade: Trinity, but he turned it down (thank goodness, I love me some Ryan Reynolds).

– In the beginning of the book version of Interview with a Vampire, Louis is depressed because he feels guilty about the death of his brother. But in the movie, it’s because he had a wife and child that died. In fact, he never had a wife in the book.

– In the 2004 movie, Van Helsing, the place where Van Helsing and Anna fight Dracula’s three wives is the same place where they filmed the classics, Frankenstein (1931), Dracula (1931) and The Wolf Man (1941). The location is called the Court of Miracles.

– While filming the scene in Underworld: Evolution where Selene and Michael look at each other longingly, director Len Wiseman surprised the cast and crew by playing Bryan Adams’ song “Everything I Do (I Do It For You)”, which made everyone bust out laughing

– The symbol on the necklace that Daniel Baldwin’s character wears in John Carpenter’s Vampires is the Nordic rune meaning “Protector.”

Bela Lugosi earned $4,000 for his participation in publicity photos for Dracula’s Daughter, even though he doesn’t appear in the film.

Stephenie Meyer, the author of the Twilight books, made a cameo in the first movie. You can see her next to a laptop ordering a vegetarian sandwich in the diner at the beginning of the scene where Charlie asks Bella if she likes any of the boys in town.

– The makers of Daybreakers hosted a contest on Worth1000.com (popular photo manipulation site) to come up with images of how the world would look if nearly everyone were a vampire.

– Moonlight

Moonlight (aka Amanda) loves to write about, read about and learn about everything pertaining to vampires. You will most likely find her huddled over a book of vampire folklore with coffee in hand. Touch her coffee and she may bite you (and not in the fun way).

  1. Only thing I knew was Bela Lugosi part. Van Helsing trivia was wonderful. Court of Miracles… it´s come from silent Hunchback of Notre Dame, I think.
