    As properties such as “True Blood” and “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” forge a new path into bloody silliness, it's been a spell since any grounded, literary-based portrayals of vampire mythology have hit the screen, with a few notable exceptions. Luckily though, one of...

It's also been considered "unfilmable" -- but now Walter Salles ("The Motorcycle Diaries," "Dark Water") brings the novel to the screen, and "The Motor...
