Long before the "Twilight Saga," "Vampire Diaries" and the "True Blood" book series, folklore about these undead creatures have been circulating for centuries. While they have been called different names in different cultures, for example, the Soucouyant in the Caribbean, the Sasabonsam in parts of Africa, the Mandurugo in the Philippines and the Nukekubi in Japan, they all had one thing in common, and that was feeding off of the blood of humans.
Now in more modern times, these once scary and ruthless creatures have seemed to gain a more likable and relatable demeanor. For example, Edward and Emmet Cullen from the "Twilight Saga" had teens everywhere swooning, Selene from "Underworld" and "Blade" had people wanting their speed and agility, and the ever-popular Dracula who has been on the big screen from 1897, had people wishing they were him.
