Get ready to sink your teeth into 50 years of hedonistic history.
Because we at TVLine have always felt that Halloween should be a month-long affair, we’re spending every Saturday in October saluting our favorite small-screen creatures that go bump in the night — or, in the case of this week’s category, bump-and-grind in the night. That’s right, we’re talking about vampires.
From those stone-cold smolderers from The Vampire Diaries and True Blood to more classic bloodsuckers — including a certain felt-skinned member of the undead community — we rounded up TV’s top 25 fangers for your voting pleasure (arranged in chronological order because knowledge is power).
Browse our gallery of iconic vamps below, then vote for your favorite.
