Beautiful, immortal and deadly, vampires aren’t just monsters we’re afraid of — they’re monsters we want to become. Vampire movies and television provide a unique lens with which to examine why humans are morbidly drawn to a bloodthirsty threat, and what it might mean to toe the line between life and death.
Alongside Josh Hartnett, John Landis, Mick Garris and many others, Eli Roth explores the titillating danger of vampires in their many forms, and why we’re so fascinated by the intersection between sex and death in Dracula, The Lost Boys, True Blood and more.
The Season Finale of Eli Roth’s History of Horror airs Sunday Late Night on AMC.
