Ever since Count Dracula took his place among the pantheon of Hollywood horror icons, vampires have been portrayed not just as bloodthirsty demons, but as sexy supernatural creatures who have generally been misunderstood. While Twilight might be the most famous modern example of this, it’s not the only one. The Underworld franchise, for example, which is headlined by Kate Beckinsale, takes its own approach to the vampire legend, combining them with werewolves (called lycans) to develop a more well-rounded monster mythology. And it was just getting started.
There was a point in time when a Blade/Underworld crossover felt very possible and then it all fell apart, and it’s not the only one.
