Vampires are the classic horror movie monster — the default leader of such creatures that prey upon humanity when they aren’t shilling marshmallow cereals. However, they’re also weird as shit. What with their bizarre rules and restrictions, like the aversion to sunlight, Christian iconography and not perving on children. This makes them perfect spooky fodder to conjure up comedy from.
