Here are the results of a poll that Catherine Karp over at Suburban Vampire conducted regarding Vampire Cliches:
1. Traditional deterrents (garlic, crosses)
2. Vampires with generic foreign accents
3. A tie
–Vampire males with long, flowing hair
–Vampire detectives/crime fighters
4. A tie
–Goth girls in love with vampires
5. Vampires who live in manors
7. Impossibly beautiful vampires
Two people who marked “Other” added their own least-favorite cliches: cookie-cutter “badasses” – who just happen to also be vampires and sloppy eaters.
What a fun poll! Thanks Catherine!
