LA Times Entertainment ~ Vampires : Sexy or not sexy?

A Los Angeles Times feature asks if Vampires are sexy or not. Easy answer! Ooooo sooooo sexy :> They have included Mick St John as an example of that... and also lament Moonlight's cancelation.

Vampires: Sexy or not sexy?

The debate over vampires as heartthrob vs. heart-devourer is old but still valid. For every studly Dracula, rising out of his coffin like Hugh Hefner (back in the 1960s), there's another bloodsucker with giant fangs and creepy eyes and gore-encrusted claws. Just last year we had the horrific "30 Days of Night" and this year we have smoldering Bill from HBO's "True Blood" and, of course, the doe-eyed Edward of "Twilight."

But are they really hot, or horrific? And where do they stack up against the many other bloodsuckers who have slunk across the screen? Our crack team of experts ponders the sex-appeal (or lack thereof) of creatures of the night.


We’d be a little ticked too. Mick St. John (Alex O'Loughlin) was turned into a vampire on his wedding night. By the bride. Not cool. But 55 years later, he’s still smoking hot and fighting crime. It’s a shame CBS didn’t have the heart to keep him, and his show “Moonlight,” around.,0,6624038.photogallery?index=11
