Vamp or Not?

Vamp or Not? is the section of the blog where I look at films or books that might be vampire genre or are rumoured to be so and try to determine whether I believe they should be classed as such. Some may disagree with my analysis, but that is the beauty of the genre. I tried to list some general rules I used to make my determination here, though the simple truth is that there are no hard and fast rules.
